Corporations Must Be Represented By Counsel

If you own a corporation, company, small business, or some other organization and you feel you have been wronged or you wish to file a lawsuit . . . hire an attorney. In North Carolina, a corporation cannot appear pro se (without an attorney) and must be represented by a licensed attorney in order to bring a claim against an individual or another corporation. Unless you are appearing in Small Claims Court for under the sum of $5,000, or you are appearing to avoid Default Judgment, you need an attorney to represent your company or corporation.
