Arrested for DUI? What next?
If you have been arrested for DUI, it’s serious and you need to hire a lawyer. DUIs are very difficult to prove in a court of law. Being impaired while driving, and proving it in a court of law are two different things. Officers are specially trained to make DUI arrests. Proving them can be very technical. A law firm that specializes in criminal defense is needed to successfully defend you for your DUI case.
There are many factors that determine the outcome of your DUI case. Those factors include whether you took a breath test, whether you were in an accident, your prior arrest history, your overall driving pattern, and whether you took roadside tests. Those are just a few of the many factors that go into the likelihood of a successful defense for your DUI arrest. If you have a prior arrest history for DUI, the prosecutors will be tougher on you and scrutinize your case more. No breath test, no roadsides, mean no scientific evidence—and that helps increase your chances of getting off.
Hiring a criminal defense attorney to defend your DUI case has many benefits and the cost is relatively inexpensive for the benefits gained. For example, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to get the charges dismissed. A criminal lawyer may be able to get the charges reduced or even lessen the penalties that you could be facing. Retain a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. A criminal lawyer will help you to not have a criminal record, not lose your license, not have your insurance rates go up and not have the stigma of a DUI follow you for the rest of your life.
