My best advise is that your should hire an attorney before your first court appearance. I know that isn't always practicable, but you should at least call a few lawyers before your first appearance to figure out whether you can find any lawyers in your price range. Feel free to give me a call or shoot me a text at 832 819 5290 if you'd like to talk about your case or first court appearance.
