You don't have to hire an attorney at all.  However, you would be well advised to get one and as soon as possible.  The earlier that you obtain legal representation the better.  A lawyer can more fully help to protect your rights and maximize strategies.  If a substantial amount of time has passed, its still not too late.  If you need help in finding a lawyer you can refer to:
