good stuff, and on target; a fineable offense..as to access to animal Control visit documentation - "an open record" supposedly, should she request an Animal control representative provide recap/as one of her "witnesses"?

almost an afterthought; as her "pretrial date" is upcoming..although i'm not cited and she is, may i legally "represent her" during the motions to dismiss the charges without jeopardizing my inevitably obvious role as "key witness"?
that was my guess; thanks for confirmation/expertisIn her pretrial, she can represent herself, can she not?
as i thought; thank you, Sir..if - a huge "if" as i see it, this case ever gets to a trail, can she, representing herself, with me as "key witness", ask for recesses, for the purpose of getting advice from me, or should she rely upon "talking points" and testimony of the called witnesses ?
really appreciate your counsel, Sir
thank you so much for your insight, Sir
