Denning Authors FDCC Article on Pro Se Complaints

05/30/2017

Mike Denning’s article entitled “Pro Se Complaints for Wrongful Death or Survival Damages: Void or Amendable?” is in the April issue of FDCC Insights, the journal of the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel. In the article, Denning discusses the issues surrounding the situation where a next-of-kin tries to prosecute a claim for wrongful death or survival damages without the assistance of counsel. As Denning points out, in many jurisdictions, “such an attempt constitutes the unauthorized practice of law and the Complaint is void.”
