Many people attempt to represent themselves in court, only to find out that the courtroom is a business. A business that may not be concerned about your side of the story. You, the “inexperienced defendant” will make mistakes in the courtroom that will not be forgiven by the judge, and you can end up paying the price.
What can I lose by defending myself?
- Lost wages (your lawyer can appear for you in court so you may not miss a day
- Compounded Fines
- Lost Driving Privileges
- Increased Jail Time
- Confusion over the process
