You may wonder whether it is worth the cost of hiring a lawyer for a misedemeanor or DWI in district court. Some of the reasons you should consider hiring a lawyer for a misdemeanor are:
1. A lawyer may be able to get your case dismissed for reasons that may not be obvious, such as lack of evidence or the statute of limitations.
2. A prosecutor will probably make a better deal to a defendant who is represented by a lawyer than one who is not.
3. If your case goes to trial, a lawyer will see that the proper witnesses are subpoenaed and made to come to testify for you.
4. A lawyer knows the rules of evidence and can help you prepare a good defense.
When you consider what you have to lose, the price of a lawyer in district court is well worth it.
