May I have a lawyer at my contested hearing?
You may, at your own expense, have a lawyer appear and represent you at your contested hearing. If you are represented by counsel, the lawyer is required to file a notice of appearance with the Court and the prosecuting attorney prior to the hearing date. If you appear without giving prior notice of representation, your case may be rescheduled.
