Applying for US Citizenship with DWI record (PBJ for 1 day unsupervised) in 2006.

Asked over 4 years ago - Reston, VA

I consulted with a Immigration attorney about applying for my Citizenship with DWI record in 2006. He advised that I will still need to tell the immigration that I was arrested for DWI. If I hire him, i will need to pay him. My question is, can I still apply for US Citizenship without an attorney but still report that I was arrest for DUI so I can save some attorney's fees. Your answer will be appreciated.
Thank you!

    Supreme Court of the United States
    Josue LEOCAL, Petitioner,
    v.
    John D. ASHCROFT, Attorney General, et al.
    No. 03-583.
    Argued Oct. 12, 2004.
    Decided Nov. 9, 2004.
