DUI / DWI Defense Lawyer

If you are caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (better known as a DUI) or driving while intoxicated (better known as a DWI) then you will probably want to invest in a criminal defense attorney. This wasn't always the case, as decades ago before people were really cracking down on driving while intoxicated, this was simply a fine and a night in jail. However, today it is completely different. Fines are incredibly high, at least one night will be spent in jail if not more, driver's licenses are often revoked for an extended period of time and community service is often involved in the punishment. The average DWI or DUI in California costs the person who is convicted ten thousand dollars. These penalties make hiring a DUI / DWI defense lawyer worth it, as it will save you money and time in the long run and help you to move on from these charges and put it behind you.

First, a DUI / DWI defense lawyer will look at the actual traffic stop and arrest to make sure you should have been charged in the first place. In many cases, the case will be thrown out due to improper procedures by officers or the police department, which makes the defense attorney worth it off the bat. After looking at the actual arrest and police procedure, the defense attorney will be able to use connections they have within the legal system to try and get you the best possible deal for the DUI or DWI charge, so you don't have to pay an exorbitant amount of money, do community service or lose your license for too long. Penalties like losing your license can effect your overall income as well, as you may run into problems when commuting to your job. Some good defense attorneys can help you get a provisional license as part of the plea deal as well, so people who must drive to work can do so within certain periods of time each day.

The track record of a DUI / DWI defense lawyer is also important, primarily based on how long they have been defending these types of cases and building relationships with judges and prosecutors, as well as learning the legal ins and outs of these cases. The longer they have been working in the DUI / DWI world, the better they are in many cases. Of course, it's all about how you feel about their ability to defend you when you talk to them before you bring them on to take your case.
