As a witness, your responsibility is to tell the truth. Whatever you saw. I agree. However, lawyers are not stupid, they will ask you things that they want to hear or what they want the judge or jury to hear. Like the example that I gave in the other reply. If you witnessed A pulled B off the road because a car was coming. The lawyer can ask you, " Did you see A pull B off the road." You certainly would say yes. That would be what lawyers want. Of course, I am only giving a very simple examples, it could be a lot more complicated that this.
I agree! You absolutely have the right to choose your attorney, only if you have money. Otherwise, a lawyer would be assigned to you by the court. I am sure that you know these lawyers are fresh grad. How much can you really rely on them?
Defending for oneself is a foolish action. Without knowing any laws, what are the chances that you can win the trial?
