Therefore, it is in your best interest to consult with a top-rated DUI lawyer.

Be Smart. Hire The Right Lawyer.

In searching for the right lawyer, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, training, knowledge, and experience necessary to successfully win or resolve a DUI case. Many attorneys advertise that they handle DUI cases. However, surprisingly, very few lawyers have ever tried a DUI case before a jury; even fewer have actually won. That’s because DUI laws are tough and many lawyers lack the experience needed to win at trial. As a result, they plead their clients guilty.

Therefore, don’t trust your case to a lawyer just because he advertises for DUI cases, and don’t settle for a lawyer who boasts about his experience in the unchallenged privacy of his ads or his office. Instead, be a sophisticated consumer. Ask questions. Has the lawyer you are considering ever tried a DUI case? If so, when is the last time he won a DUI case in trial?
