Should the person get a solicitor for their court case?
Motoring offence- I did a silly thing in June and drove the wrong way back up a slip road for the m1 as there was an accident and it had been closed, I was met by a highways officer and I drove around them. Stressful time at home and with disabled kids I couldn't wait for hours hence what I did. Stupid and careless yes I know. Anyway got the letter, admitted it was me, also had a voluntary interview at police station where I could see the evidence and put across my points. I have only just received a letter saying I have been summoned to court for next month. I had a solicitor present at interview. Do I go to court on my own or employ the solicitor to help? I know what the consequences could be but if I get banned it would mean lack of job and then I wouldn't be able to get my boys to hospital appointments. So question is would I look better going on my own or should I get a solicitor? Thank you.
