Representing Yourself in Court
You can but should you?
While you can defend yourself in court, it is not recommended. Defending yourself in court can be compared to giving yourself a root canal. Even if you have the technical skills to do the job properly, it still isn’t a good idea because you don’t have the proper perspective.
Many lawyers focus their practice entirely on defending impaired driving charges. These lawyers know the system inside and out. Unlike you, they have the skills and experience necessary to get you the best possible results and also the perspective necessary to assess your case objectively.
You might be shocked to learn how much time an impaired driving lawyer will spend preparing for your trial. A good defence requires hours of detailed preparation and in-depth legal research. You likely have neither the time nor the skills to do this preparation on your own.
In the Ottawa area, Sean May can get you the results that you can’t hope to get on your own. Call (613) 454-1237 today and take control of your life.
