Taking the First Step After a DUI
Feeling overwhelmed by your DUI? Getting a DUI (driving under the influence) charge can leave total disaster in its wake. You are likely feeling shook up by emotions like regret, shame, and confusion. Even though this stress may make you hesitant, you need to hire a quality lawyer sooner rather than later. The more time you have to prepare, the more likely you are to achieve a favorable outcome.
You’re going to want an accomplished attorney on your side as soon as possible.
Evaluating the Best Choice for You
Each DUI case is different, so you need an attorney who will work with you to develop the best strategy for your particular situation. Often, a quality attorney can help you avoid jail time or prevent license suspension.
Don’t waste time with a lawyer unless he/she is able to:
- Call into question any issues with the traffic stop that resulted in your arrest
- Take a close look at the officer’s notes from your traffic stop
- Question the blood or breath test used during your DUI arrest
- Ensure that you are fully educated about your DUI defense options and discuss DUI expungement (the process of getting the DUI removed from your permanent record)
- Take care of all pretrial litigation and adequately prepare for your trial
