On your on your first offense of a misdemeanor DUI what normally happens if you show up without a lawyer?
1 attorney answer
They could give you a new court date to find a lawyer. If you don't have the money to hire a lawyer, then you need to come up with that money. If you don't have a job then get a job. If you have one job, then get another one. A DUI is a very serious charge with implications all over the place. You don't want to hire someone who handles DUI cases every once in a while. Get someone who knows what the hell they're doing, and that attorney will cost money.
