you and tells the judge what you want the judge to know.

lawyer cannot tell the judge or anyone else about what you said or wrote, unless you
tell your lawyer it’s okay to tell the judge or others or unless the lawyer is required by
law to tell the judge.
4. If you tell me you want a lawyer, I will tell the judge so the judge can get a lawyer for
you.
5. If you are not sure about whether or not you want a lawyer, you will get to talk with a
lawyer to find out more. After you meet with the lawyer, you can decide if you want
a lawyer or not.
