3 Things to Consider when Looking for a DUI Defense Lawyer

Over 1 million drivers are arrested each year for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, Drugs, or a combination of the two. Driving Under the Influence is a serious charge with potentially severe consequences. If you are arrested for Driving Under the Influence, your criminal record and driving privileges are at stake; thus, it is imperative that you act quickly in securing competent, aggressive legal representation. A skilled DUI trial attorney can help you navigate the complex legal system and answer questions regarding your pending charges and driving privileges, all the while relieving some of the stress you may be experiencing. There are many DUI attorneys across Statesboro and surrounding areas, but not all can achieve the best outcome for your case. It is critical that the defense attorney you choose have substantial trial experience, proven success in the specific field of DUI law, and an approachable demeanor in discussing the facts surrounding your individual case.

An arrest for Driving Under the Influence can have an immediate impact on your everyday life and can negatively affect your driving privileges, your employment, and your family as a whole. A conviction may lead to potential jail time, probation, hefty fines, alcohol and/or drug treatment, and a twelve-month suspension of your driver’s license. Effective legal representation can help you better understand the charges against you and recommend the best way to approach your case.

To maximize your options and get the possible outcome for your case, it is important to consider these three things when choosing a DUI trial attorney:

  1. Look for someone with extensive criminal law and courtroom experience.

A great DUI attorney works on cases like yours every day and is prepared to handle any twist or turn that may unfold. He or she will know the best strategies to achieve desirable results within the confines of the law. This is the legal expert you want in your corner.

  1. Hire locally. 

A local attorney is likely to be more familiar with the courts, judges, and prosecutors where your case will be handled. By enlisting the expertise of an attorney with firsthand experience, you will have a better idea of what to expect and how long your case may take, from start to finish, in a given jurisdiction.

  1. Behind every great attorney is a great staff.

It is important to meet the other professional staff in your perspective attorney’s office, such as the paralegal who will be assisting in your case or other attorneys within the firm who may collaborate as your case progresses. You will feel even more confident with the status of your case, knowing that you not only have one talented attorney at your side, but an entire team of individuals who pride themselves in making your case a priority.

    Not many people would think about the attorney’s supporting staff being important, but I think it is great that the article brings it up. After all, they are there to help the attorney gather any documents and research that is needed for your case. Without the supports staff’s help it is very unlikely that your case will proceed very far.

    Recently, my brother was charged with a DUI. We are trying to help him find a defense attorney that will be able to help him with his case. That’s a great suggestion to hire locally since they are more likely to be familiar with the courts, judges, and prosecutors where the case will be handled.
