Do I Really Need a DUI Attorney?

When you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you have a limited amount of time to get moving on your case to prevent the DMV from automatically suspending your driver’s license.

While the DA may not even charge you with DUI for months, or even up to a year, you will likely lose your driver's license almost immediately if you fail to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of the DUI arrest.

With so little time to defend your driving privileges, you should recognize the importance of having a DUI attorney by your side from the very beginning of your case.

Even though it can take the DA months to file DUI charges, it does not mean that you should sit back and do nothing.

It may take the court some time to schedule your first court appearance, but in the meantime the DMV will be taking swift action against you. In the face of an automatic driver’s license suspension, ask yourself:

  • Can I afford to have my license suspended?
  • How will I get to work or school?
  • How will I drive my family around?
  • Will my auto insurance be affected by the suspension?
  • What would happen if I was caught driving on a suspended license?
  • What are the penalties for driving on a suspended license?
  • Would I go to jail if I drove on a suspended license?

Since you probably do not know the answers to the above questions, we strongly recommend that you contact our office to schedule a free case evaluation with an experienced member of our DUI defense team.

Benefits of Hiring a DUI Lawyer

Think of it this way: The court is coming prepared, and there is no reason you shouldn't be also. The court will be using all the small details of the law to take away your rights and privileges, imposing time behind bars, fines, classes, and even community service.

With so much being stacked against you, you deserve to have a legal representative who will give you a fighting chance in court.

A DUI attorney can offer many benefits, including:

  • Helping you to meet all of the deadlines
  • Protecting your right to remain silent
  • Determine impact and credibility of evidence
  • Providing expert analysis of the law
  • Removing bias and control neutrality
  • Knowing how to challenge the results of breath, blood, urine, and field sobriety tests
  • Having access to expert witnesses and independent laboratories

Even if a case does not go to trial or if you think the evidence against you is too large to be ignored, an experienced DUI attorney can work with the evidence presented to get you reduced jail time, fines, and other penalties instead of having you face these all on your own.
