Do I need an attorney?
- This is a personal decision. Professional legal counsel will represent the City. Some traffic and criminal matters heard by the court are misdemeanors and carry possible jail time if the defendant is convicted. A defendant wishing to defend him/herself in these matters must sign a document known as a Waiver of Counsel. This will usually be done at time of plea.
