    Answered . You must have an attorney who will try to arrange this for you. You will be required to attend court at some point, if not often, and usually each defendant is allowed only one reset off docket.
    Good Luck!

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Either you or an attorney will have to be present or a warrant will almost certainly be issued for your arrest. Use avvo to find a few locally experienced DUI attorneys and give them a call. Most if not all will offer a free consultation. Hire the one that appears to be the best fit. Good luck.
