    Answered . I have recently appeared at a Hearing at a Las Vegas DMV location. It is not necessary to have a lawyer with you, but it might be wise if you can find one that will not charge too much. You should also look at your exposure to losing your license or being criminally charged.

    If you did nothing wrong and were not involved in any crime, then you should get your relative to tell the truth about that. As far as the minor, if he/she has no prior issues, the Officer may not want to press any charges. However, it will be up to the individual officer and how he/she feels about helping or harming the minor.

    Hope this helps.

    Answered . You aren't required to have an attorney. That being said, you should, at the very least, consult with an attorney who can provide you with your options and from there make a decision. A consultation would likely cost $200-$400, but it would be worth it if you have lingering questions about the procedure, or the substance of what will be addressed at the hearing.

    Best of the luck.
