    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes he should have an attorney. If you are willing you could call a few attorneys in the area and see if you can reach an agreement with one of them to represent him. A lot depends on exactly what the court appearance was for. More information is needed to be able to determine if he is facing anything serious or not. Good luck.
