You never want to represent yourself in court because you lack the knowledge of the system itself, the language, the process, and the ability to see both sides of the argument. Understanding how the judicial system works is vital in the outcome of the trial.
As a former prosecutor, he understands how they think and the course of the proceedings. Having Mr. Linder on your side will allow you to see things from both sides of the court and have a clear understanding of what’s to come.
Is a private attorney better than a public defender?
