In city if you are arrested for a criminal DUI, there are certain steps you can take to help avoid a conviction. The first step is consulting with an experienced DUI lawyer. No two cases are the same and our attorneys have an excellent understanding of the law, the local rules and regularly work against the attorneys at the District Attorney’s office. Their extensive legal experience and familiarity with the process with be vital to your criminal defense.
Some people believe that they will minimize the cost of a DUI by pleading guilty and getting the legal proceedings out of the way. Unfortunately, it rarely works out this way. The effects of a guilty or no contest plea to a DUI charge are far reaching and the final cost may exceed $10,000 after all of the collateral consequences have been accounted for and paid. While hiring a DUI criminal attorney may appear expensive at first, the expenses are normally minimal when taking the cost of a DUI conviction into account. Our office offers free consultations to potential clients to help them evaluate whether or not hiring an experienced DUI lawyer is the right decision for them.
