Should I hire my own lawyer or use a public defender for a misdemeanor DWI charge?
I received my first misdemeanor DWI and I was admittedly in the wrong. I don't want to beat the case, I just do not want to be locked up.
I have a lot of respect for public defenders; however, as a general rule they are not DWI specialists. A lot depends...
