Q: How can I best manage a DUI without a lawyer?
I recently made an extremely irresponsible decision and attempted to operate a vehicle after drinking.
I am no longer working (I am however taking time to learn how to create apps to create a business) due to the pandemic and thus cannot afford an attorney.
I know how this discussion could have hurt others and how it still can negatively change my life. Im grateful that no one was hurt.
I would deeply appreciate some guidance on how to manage my case for the best result possible.
Can you please assist me?
A: It would be in your best interest to not make another irresponsible decision and try to represent yourself. OWI/DUI cases can be technically difficult cases. If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, you should ask for a public defender who can assist you in evaluating your case and negotiating a resolution.
