Do I have to hire an attorney?

No. You can represent yourself.  Municipal courts are not required by law to appoint you a lawyer, but you may retain one yourself.  No one other than a lawyer can represent you in court. This applies to parents of juveniles.  If you are not an attorney, you can not represent your child in a trial.
