Picking a DUI Attorney
A DUI is a serious charge that carries with it consequences that can include fines, license revocation, and even a jail sentence. If you have been charged with a DUI, it’s essential to hire an experienced attorney to represent you.
A DUI attorney can help you understand your charges, your rights, and your options to ultimately improve the outcome of your case.
Look for a Local Attorney
Hiring a local DUI attorney offers many advantages.
A local attorney is more easily reachable, especially when you need to meet in person, and will also have experience with local courts and law officers.
A good understanding of how local DUI cases are handled and even the area where the incident occurred can offer a significant advantage when your attorney presents your case.
Focus on Communication
Communication is the key to a good client-lawyer relationship.
Before hiring an attorney, meet with him in person to evaluate how well he communicates and how comfortable you feel with his personality and methodology.
You should feel that your attorney is open, honest, and approachable; if you have questions or concerns, you’ll want to feel comfortable taking them to him at any time and confident that you’ll receive a clear answer.
Ask About Experience
An experienced attorney can better evaluate your case on a personal level and develop a customized approach to help you achieve the best outcome.
Look for an attorney with an established practice and references you can trust.
You can also ask your attorney about his past experience and the number of cases he’s successfully handled to determine whether you feel he will be able to represent your needs with the personalized attention to detail you deserve.
