How Hiring A DUI Attorney Can Help You

Since driving under the influence (DUI) charges are very serious, it is critical that you take it them seriously as well. Even with first time offenders, hiring a DUI attorney can play a critical role in your case. Not only are DUI attorneys knowledgeable in the process, but they will defend your rights as well.

What Is A DUI?

A DUI is defined by the operation of a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages, consuming more than the legal limit, which is .08% blood alcohol content (BAC) in the state of Illinois. While it is not required, many first time offenders may not require the assistance of a DUI attorney in their case.

However, often times, DUI’s may also include other offenses such as a repeat offender, reckless driving, DUI while driving with a minor in the vehicle, or DUI with a high blood alcohol content of .12% or greater. These offenses are much more serious, and should always be brought to a DUI attorney immediately.

How Can An Attorney Help?

If you have made the decision to hire a DUI attorney, there are several ways that they can help you. Not only will they help to determine the best type of defense for your particular situation, but they can also help in plea-bargaining, as well as help with any sentence bargaining.

How Do I Find The Right DUI Attorney?

It is imperative to only seek the assistance of an attorney that specializes in criminal defense and DUI cases. It is also important to consider how experienced an attorney may be, asking them about their previous cases and the results from those cases. Since DUI cases can be very personal, it is also important to hire an attorney who you feel comfortable with and feel that you can trust to make the right decision for your individual case.
