You do not provide alot of information here. If your case is simple and straight forward and does not require alot of investigation it can be possible to be ready for a trial in 3 weeks. If you are bringing in new counsel and this case is not too old, most Judges will give your new attorney as much time as is reasonable to get ready for your trial assuming you are not stalling the court. Many of us here offer free consults, including us, call around I am sure you can get some valuable input from the attorneys here.See question

Received a Settlement offer, don't know if to pay it or not. Court is next month. Shoplifting misdemeanor. What are my chances of jail time?

You would be prudent to hire counsel who can try to divert the case so no conviction is entered. As for the letter, do not respond. Many of us offer free consults it would be worth your while to call some of us for more detailed consults.See question
