Although an individual may choose to represent himself or herself in a trial, the same is not true of a corporation. Companies are considered separate entities (apart from their partners or shareholders). As such, an individual cannot legally represent their company (even as the only shareholder). To represent any entity other than oneself requires an attorney licensed in the state where the case is to be tried.
For most people (even businesses), being sued is not a common event and therefore experiencing concern or fear is natural. However, there is no need to panic. For starters, the defendant has 20 days to respond to suit.
