There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for DUIs. Each case is different. It can damage your driving record, put you in jail, and even hurt your chances of finding employment. Here are five reasons why getting a lawyer is the only way out.
Attorneys have full knowledge of DUI laws.
No matter how much research you do on tips and tricks to win a DUI case on your own, the chances of succeeding are close to zero. That’s because the average person cannot make sense of these complex legal processes. It’s better to leave it to an attorney who is trained to work their way around these laws. Also, you won’t have to deal with fiddly paperwork.
People think that lawyers are too expensive, but they’re not aware of how costs add up. DUIs are known for the high fines, but there are other hidden price tags: license reinstatement fees, increased auto insurance prices, and so on. An attorney, however, can have the fines waived. This is impossible to do without the help of an expert in the legal field.
Avoid jail time.
Imagine going to court by yourself and feeling intimidated by all these unknown legal terms prosecutors are throwing at you. This is where the attorney plays a huge role because they have the expertise to analyze the accusation and negotiate with them to secure a fair punishment that doesn’t involve prison.
Keep your driving privileges.
Your license can be suspended after a DUI accusation, thus disrupting your lifestyle and even your job commute. Fortunately, many DUI cases, with a proper attorney, result in hitting the road quicker than usual.
Return to normal life quicker.
If you have a clean criminal record, getting a long punishment similar to those of more serious DUI offenses doesn’t seem reasonable. Of course, you’re less likely to fall into this trap if an attorney prepares a strong defense.
