Should I Represent Myself In Court?

One should never represent themselves, you know, in any sort of criminal procedure. In fact, we recommend people get an attorney for something as simple as a traffic ticket. You may say say: Well, I can’t afford an attorney. You’re going to pay more in the end whether it’s a traffic ticket or a DWI.

A DWI is an enhanceable offense. It’s a serious misdemeanor. You’re talking about your freedom, you’re talking about your ability to drive a vehicle, you’re ability of how this is going to affect your employment, your record. You need to have a lawyer that knows what they’re doing to handle this from start to finish.

You probably don’t quality for a public defender for a DWI because this is a misdemeanor and probably your income situation, so you really need to get someone who knows what they’re doing so that’s the most important part.
