Do I need an attorney?

You are not required to have an attorney for a Municipal Court matter; the decision is yours. Municipal Courts do not provided public defenders.

It is important to understand that the Court staff is interested in answering all procedural questions you have about how the Court will handle your case; however, they cannot offer legal advice or make recommendations to you about your case or recommend an attorney.
