If I Am Arrested for DUI Do I Need a Lawyer?

If you have been arrested for Driving Under the Influence it is in your best interest to hire an experienced and proven DUI Defense Attorney to defend you in court. From the moment a driver is first pulled over the evidence against them is being compiled. Initially, many drivers are being filmed and recorded at the traffic stop to capture any possible movements or speech that can be construed as evidence of intoxication. Other potential evidence can be a field sobriety test as well as a breathalyzer and in extreme cases blood evidence.

The court process can be very intimidating for someone who has never experienced it and your lawyer will guide you through it and take control of your best legal options. Please do not make the mistake of attempting to defend yourself in court. It takes years to fully understand the entire process of a legal defense and a competent attorney will have that experience. You need a lawyer that can work every detail in your favor and create doubt as to your potential guilt.

In a best-case scenario, your attorney may be able to get the case dismissed for a number of technical or legal reasons. You should know all of your legal rights and options and a good lawyer will keep you informed through the entire process. You should always feel free to ask questions and discuss your case as you will be a vital part of the process before and during the trial.

It is important to know that the prosecutors often have vast experience with DUI cases as they are one of the most committed offenses. For this reason, it is especially important to hire a DUI Defense Attorney that is Board Certified with years of trial experience and vast knowledge of the court system. There is nothing that is more important than real experience especially when your reputation is on the line.

The damaging effects of a DUI conviction can range from increased auto insurance rates to loss of employment for some. It can also have a negative impact on future employment especially if driving is a requirement. If you are faced with a second or even third conviction the potential penalties can be much more severe. Do yourself a big favor and hire the best DUI Defense Attorney you can find.
