Frequently Asked Question

Do I need to appear in court with my attorney?

A: For most cases, no. When you signed the “Waiver of Appearance” section of the Agreement of Representation, you designated Jennifer Allen Law, PLLC to appear on your behalf.

Do I need to attend driving school? If so, which one?
