DUI charges and representing yourself in Van Nuys, CA

Question: Question: Can I represent myself in court for my first offense DUI in Van Nuys, CA??
Answer: Yes, but I would highly recommend that you hire a bDUI defense attorney in your area that is familiar with DUI defense. Knowledge of court procedure and forensic toxicology are necessary to properly defend against most DUI cases. By trying to represent yourself, you could miss good defenses (and how to present and argue them). I could go on and on and on about why representing yourself is a bad idea. Do yourself a favor and at least set up an initial consultation with a DUI attorney or two.
