I got a first offense DUI last month and i recently got denied for a public defender because of my savings account (which i started because i have been working every single day to save for the fine I am sure i will be getting). The lowest lawyer i can find is ranging from 4-6 grand and i just cant afford that at all. Do i get a court appointed attorney the day of court? I just don't want to show up looking like i don't care about this charge but i simply don't have the funds for a lawyer.
