Why You Should Use A DUI Lawyer That Limits His Practice To DUI Defense

Dec 2, 2011
It can happen to anyone. You go out with friends, have a couple of drinks, and drive home. No big deal. But what happens when you get pulled over and fail a breathalyzer or another sobriety test? In most states, you've earned a one way ticket to jail and a very serious charge which could have long term consequences as you face your state's DUI process. This is true whether you're barely over the legal limit in your state or are three sheets to the wind. If you find yourself charged with a DUI, don't trust your case and your future to just any lawyer. Instead, look for DUI lawyers who have a proven track record of success dealing with the DUI process.

The legal profession, like most professions these days, has become highly fragmented. While any lawyer who has passed your state's bar can represent you, you're going to have the best results if you are dealing with DUI lawyers who makes it their entire life's work helping people who are facing the DUI process.

While most legal processes are intricate and detail oriented by their very nature, the DUI process in particular requires a lawyer who is thoroughly familiar with your state and local laws. This isn't to suggest that other lawyers could not competently represent you, but that a DUI lawyer who works with the DUI process every day is in a better position to fight for you or work out a favorable plea bargain.

If you can, find a lawyer who does nothing else. If you were facing open heart surgery, you wouldn't want a general practitioner to operate on you. You would want a heart surgeon, preferably one who deals with that particular procedure day in and day out. You should be no less selective about who represents you in court during the DUI process. After all, you could be facing jail time, loss of your driving privileges, and considerable fines. While these may not be life threatening, they are certainly lifestyle threatening.

Make sure the lawyer you choose not only has experience and success with DUI cases, but also keeps current on the law and courtroom trends at the national, state, and local levels. DUI lawyers worth their salt will be involved in regularly attending seminars dedicated to DUI defense. The best DUI lawyers teach at these seminars. Ask your prospective DUI attorney which seminars he has attended or taught recently
