You can represent yourself in a bankruptcy case. It's called proceeding pro se, which means without an attorney. Generally, I would not recommend that. I would recommend that you retain a qualified bankruptcy attorney in your area simply because bankruptcy is a very complicated process, it's many times not straightforward, there are a lot of laws and a lot of gotchas in bankruptcy that you would want to avoid. In order to do that, the best thing to do would be to speak with a bankruptcy attorney and get the best advice possible.
