If you are facing legal matters it is best not to face them alone. Going to Court without competent legal representation by your side is like calling a doctor to get step by step instructions on a medical procedure over the phone, and then attempting to undertake those steps without the help of a trained medical professional. We understand the economy is tight, but taking chances with your freedom is not the place to try and cut back on expenses. The benefits to having a qualified attorney on your team are too many to count, and it also depends on the type of case.
For a DUI, here are three ways a good DUI attorney can help you:
- Skilled DUI defense attorneys know where to look for pieces of your defense. Perhaps the breath test administered to you was done so by a person not qualified to do so, or maybe the equipment has not been maintained properly. In either of those instances there is a chance the test results are unreliable and thus cannot be used in your case. Without proof your blood alcohol content was over the legal limit, the prosecution will have a hard time making charges stick.
- A knowledgeable DUI defense attorneys knows the case is more than just criminal, and will act fast to help save your driver’s license. There are only 10 days to make a request for review of the revocation of your driver’s license, and if you forget to make this request you will not be able to drive.
- Putting your case in the hands of a qualified attorney is also helpful because your attorney will negotiate on your behalf with the state for the most lenient sentence. In many first time offender cases jail time can be avoided altogether and if you are successful on a term of probation it is possible the charges against you will be reduced.
