In the previous installment in our Breakdown of a DUI series, we talked about several of the penalties commonly associated with DUI convictions. With these penalties being as serious as they are, fighting a DUI charge is something you should never attempt to do on your own.
In our fifth and final article in the series, we’ll take a look at the importance of hiring an experienced DUI lawyer and how to find the right one to handle your particular case.
The value that an experienced DUI lawyer offers
The first bit of value that a DUI lawyer offers that becomes immediately obvious to anyone who is charged with a DUI is peace of mind. The period of time after a DUI arrest is almost always one full of worry, confusion, and a whole flood of other negative emotions. Unless you’ve been through the process before, you simply won’t know what to expect, and this alone can be very uncomfortable. Experienced DUI lawyers, however, do know what to expect because they’ve been there before. They’ll be able to help alleviate much of the confusion and worry that would otherwise persist for weeks on end.
Beyond this, DUI lawyers are trained to spot the differences that make each case unique and use those differences to your advantage in court to try and mitigate or even negate the charges that have been leveled against you. For example, a talented DUI lawyer may be able to find loopholes in your case such as a breathalyzer that was not properly maintained or an arrest that was not conducted in the right way. Many times, these are loopholes that would not be found by a public defender and certainly not by an individual who is representing themselves.
Even if you are found guilty, DUI lawyers will work with the prosecution to arrange a bargain that is in your best interest. For example, if you wish to avoid jail time at all cost, a DUI lawyer may argue that you be sent to a rehabilitation program instead.
From start to finish, having an experienced DUI lawyer in your corner is truly invaluable. If you are facing a charge that is even mildly serious, you can’t afford not to have a professional in your corner who is willing to fight for you every step of the way.
How to find the right DUI lawyer
