If you have been charged with a drunk driving offense (often called a DUI or DWI), it is imperative to seek legal counsel. A competent DUI lawyer can help minimize – if not completely avoid – penalties and punishments for the committed crime.
You should be aware of the right time to hire a good attorney for your case, since early defense can help make or break your case. Are you going to end up in jail and lose your license, or will you win a reduced plea or not-guilty verdict?
Being charged with a DUI is a serious matter. The odds of being charged with actual jail time, license suspension and large fines are high. On top of those, you need to face the social and moral implications of your case. You may be judged precariously by other people and you may find it hard to get a job or further your career. Your personal relationships may suffer as well.
There are some cases that you can deal with quickly and easily. However, DUI arrests will require you to seek legal counsel. If you don’t hire your own attorney, you’ll be provided a public defense attorney and many a quite good. But you do not get to choice your public attorney. And, know that a general criminal defense attorney may not be enough. It is important to remember that laws about DUI are quite complex. This means that you need a lawyer with extensive knowledge and experience in this area of the law.
