Do you need a solicitor if accused of a driving offence ? You might have been caught speeding, careless driving or drink driving. The short answer is NO. Of course you can represent yourself. Nobody has to have a solicitor to help them but please pause before setting off to court. Ask yourself this ? If I needed a tooth out would I do it myself or go to a dentist ? If I needed to sell my house would I do it myself or go to an estate agent? Need a hair cut, reach for the scissors or find a hairdresser ?
Of course people can represent themselves. In simple, straight forward matters why not ? It really comes down to paying for what you get. If you want the best possible legal advice and assistance to navigate the system then you should always contact a solicitor. Sometimes cost does play a part. You have to weigh up is it worth spending out and what will I gain.
