It is not always necessary to have your lawyer present at every court appearance. If you have retained the services of an attorney, however, and feel strongly that he or she should be present then your lawyer should oblige at your request.

Yes but there could be other reasons for not appearing such as the prosecutor is going to pass the matter to a later date.
