Should I hire a DUI Attorney?

Should I hire a DUI Attorney?

Should I hire a DUI attorney or should I just follow the court orders? If you are satisfied with the courts decisions which can vary depending upon how high your blood alcohol level was and your driving. Many times, your license will be revoked for a minimum of 30 days and then the revokation may be extended after you go to court. The court usually requires a drunk driving class and a certain number of hours in jail or community service.

Even if you hire an attorney, you will still have to do most of the things that the judge imposes. However, if you spend a little money on an attorney, may be $500-$1,500, you then will not have to go into court. Your attorney will go in for you. Your attorney will let you know what the standard punishment will be. You can ask your attorney to ask for a lower sentence. It never hurts to ask. He may be able to get your license back sooner or your community service shortened or waved. It is definitely worth a try.

If you have a good job and are needed by a company or your family, you may be able to have your attorney argue that you are better off driving for your job than having your license suspended.

I highly recommend hiring an attorney for all court experiences, especially criminal cases and dui cases need an attorney.
