Getting Legal Representation

While most defendants can, in theory, represent themselves, it's almost always a bad idea. Mounting a criminal defense requires a thorough knowledge of many very detailed laws and knowing how judges have interpreted these rules in past cases. It's just as important to understand the human factor: how cases like yours are handled in your courthouse by the judges, prosecutors, and police who make discretionary decisions all the time. Only someone well-versed in the law and the local legal scene can adequately assess the strengths and weaknesses of a case and its chances in court or at the negotiating table.
