You don't need a lawyer to get article 894.

no you don't, but some people don't want to hassle with it and it's worth 1500-2000 to have somebody handle it all for them (other than a court appearance or 2)

anyone can ask for an 894

sometimes it isn't offered unless you have a lawyer, b/c the DA wants to play hardball

I got a DUI about 12 years ago and was offered to everyone who was a first time offender. Not sure if this has changed or not tho.

If Jerry Jones is still the DA in that area, he's playing hardball and won't give in. He's notorious for being a hard ass, especially for anything drug-related, or DWIs or DUIs.
