I am a complainant on a criminal case - robbery and a Preliminary Conference and Pre-Trial dates were set already. My question is- do I need a lawyer on this Preliminary Conference?
I don't have any lawyer yet and honestly don't have much money to pay for lawyers. The accused pleaded not guilty during the arraignment but we have a very strong evidence since we caught them in my improvised CCTV and the barangay tanods were able to recover the stolen laptop from the robbers.
please help.. thanks!
