Question: To Lawyers: Is there a juristiction in the US where a plaintiff in Small Claims can have a surrogate speak? I'd like to know if there is any juristiction anywhere in the US where a plaintiff in a Small Claims action can appoint a surrogate - who is NOT an attorney - to speak on their behalf?

Answer: You can grant ANYONE a 'Power of Attorney'. That enables them to act on your behalf in ANY capacity that YOU can legally act. This is true EVERYWHERE in the US. The attorneys need to 'think outside the box' on occasion. Then again, that would ruin the 'legal monopoly' they have enacted into law.
