FIRST CINGRESS – Session1, Chapter 20, year of 1780, (sec. 35) “AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, that in all the courts of the United Stats, the parties may plead and manage their own cause personally or by the assistance of such (personal) counsel or attorneys at law as by the rules of the said courts respectively shall be permitted to manage and conduct causes therein.” (Added for clarity.) Can only be found in the archived books.
>>> Note never claim “self-representation”, but rather I’ll “manage” my own court matters.
A law student said that in this United States Code it provided for your right to have “counsel” not a hamstrung attorney. Soon I’ll have the USC that states the right to have counsel.
Note- The Constitution states “counsel”, not stand by counsel (a potted plant), not a foreign agent such as a Bar Card Packing Attorney, who is an Officer of the court.
Counsel of your choosing, or even one provided by the state.
Thank you for your willingness to provide me with the assistance of Counsel that I require. I intend to speak in court when I decide it necessary to give an answer, and at all times make decisions pertaining to myself and handle my affairs directly and not through agency, until and unless specifically and expressly so stated otherwise. I have NOT so stated otherwise, except for the specific limited needs expressed in this letter.
My defense, if any, will vary depending upon the jurisdiction of law that the prosecution invokes accordingly, due to the form of the following possible jurisdictions claimed: If Admiralty and Maritime, Equity, or at Common Law – is its civil, criminal, or civil with criminal penalties including the specific statute, subsection, part and clause being applied to me.

I forbid you to communicate with any members of the Plaintiff or officers of the Court about this case without my direct instruction and/or supervision.
