Asking if you can beat a DWI case without a lawyer is like asking if you can beat a terminal illness without a doctor–you’d better hope for a miracle.
As you already know, all United States citizens are entitled to the assistance of a public defender, according to the United States Constitution. It is the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution that grants all United States citizens the following:
“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”
In other words, anyone on trial for a criminal prosecution is entitled to a speedy and public trial. They are entitled to an impartial jury from their state on most offenses, and the assistance of a lawyer. However, using a public defender should always be your last option.
What Is A Public Defender?
A public defender is formally defined as: “A lawyer who represents indigent criminal defendants. Public defenders are staff attorneys of the legislatively created public defender service. They are appointed by the court to represent defendants and are paid by the county, state or federal government.”
What Can I Do To Beat My DWI Case?
In order to beat any criminal accusation, you need to develop a strong case for your defense. Building a strong defense case usually starts with strong evidence. This involves evidence–evidence can include a copy of the police report from the day you were pulled over, eyewitness testimonies from anyone who was there when you got arrested, and any other information that can show you aren’t guilty, such as security camera footage, fingerprint evidence, and anything else necessary to prove you did not commit the crime.
In order to develop a strong defense case, you will need the help of a skilled criminal defense attorney in Nassau County, Long Island. Gathering the evidence necessary to show your side of the story is no easy feat, and can also be impossible if you are behind bars, have a busy work schedule, or otherwise can’t work full time to fight back against your charge.

You should also look for an attorney who has strong reviews, is a member of the bar association and state-affiliated law associations.
