Can all Americans going through court cases, send lawyers to testify on their behalf, like trump does?

Update:

Which ones were on the Ukraine call?

    Trump has done no such thing since he's become president, because there have been no court cases involving him.  Giving evidence to a committee or an inquiry is not being in court.

    To testify is to take an oath to tell the truth and give evidence. Lawyers don't testify; they argue, which is putting the evidence in a light most favorable to their client.

    In some trials, yes. If you don't need to testify you may not have to appear.

    Um, yes? The defendant doesn't have to say a word.
