I understand I have the right to:

  • Hire my own attorney at my own expense.

  • Advise me about my legal rights and options.

  • Explain and assist me with legal and court procedures.

  • Help me negotiate a settlement of my case with the district attorney.

  • Investigate and explore possible defenses to the charges against me that may or may not be readily apparent to me.

  • Prepare and conduct my defense at any motion hearing or trial.

  • File motions on issues of evidence, testimony, and procedures of the police.

  • Assist me at disposition.

  • File an appeal, if requested.

 Check this box if you have read and understood the above.

I understand that if I represent myself:

  • The judge cannot be my attorney and cannot give me any legal advice.

  • The district attorney cannot be my attorney and cannot give me legal advice.

  • The judge, district attorney, and court personnel are not required to explain court procedures or the law.

  • The judge cannot treat me differently because I do not have an attorney.

  • I will be required to follow all legal rules and procedures that an attorney would have to follow in court, even if my case goes to trial.

  • It may be difficult for me to challenge evidence presented by the district attorney.

  • It may be difficult for me to present evidence.

  • If I want to testify I must be sworn as a witness and answer questions from the district attorney.

  • It may be difficult for me to do a good job as my own attorney.

 Check this box if you have read and understood the above.

I am making this decision to represent myself knowingly and voluntarily. No one has made any promises or threats to me, and no one has used any influence, pressure, or force of any kind to get me to not ask for an attorney. No one has told me I should not ask for an attorney to represent me.


I have read, or have had read to me, this entire document. I have truthfully answered and understood all portions of this document. I understand the court process involved in my case so that I can adequately represent myself. I want to give up my right to an attorney. I want to represent myself.
