Understanding the process, developing the right strategy to approach your case and limiting the amount of damage caused by the potential conviction is important.
Hiring a DUI lawyer may be expensive, but limiting the jail time, penalties and fines can save money in the long run.
Things that Matter:
- Court appointed Public Defenders are not always free.
- Mandatory minimum sentences are just that, minimum requirements.
- Most DUI lawyers will provide a free consultation to determine the most appropriate defense (plea vs. aggressive defense/trial) and fees.
In most jurisdictions, legal fees are not standard; interview several DUI/DWI attorneys before selecting legal representation. Keep in mind, the lawyer’s fees will add up quickly so keep your ticket, a copy of your insurance, registration, driver’s license, etc. well organized.
Consider financing your DUI before you deplete your resources.
