Do I need to hire a lawyer?

Answer: 

No, you may represent yourself. You may hire a lawyer to represent you at your
own expense, but you do not have to have a lawyer to participate in proceedings before the
agency. You may also have a person who is not a lawyer attend the hearing and speak for
you, unless the hearing concerns information that is confidential by law and, therefore,
prohibits that person from having access to the information.
