Why should you hire a drunk driving defense attorney?
After being charged with a DUI, why should you hire a DUI defense attorney? To begin with, most people are not aware of their rights following a DUI arrest. A good DUI attorney helps you minimize the consequences and answers your questions too. With a DUI attorney on your side, you have a much better chance of keeping your driving privileges intact.
Without a DUI attorney on your side, you will not be able to investigate factors that could lead to a case dismissal or reduction (Was the checkpoint legal? Was the breathalyzer machine working properly?). You want a lawyer on your side to investigate the arrest, the evidence against you and to make sure the entire process was conducted correctly.
Without a DUI attorney, you will have to handle alone something that you know very little about. As a result, you are more likely to make mistakes that could prove costly. The consequences of a DUI conviction are high and costly and you need someone on your side to uphold your rights at all costs! Let the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson fight for you today!
