Should I Hire An Attorney For My DUI?

While there are circumstances in which a DUI defense attorney may not be necessary, there are several occasions in which they will play a crucial role.

When To Hire A DUI Attorney:

  • If you have had more than one DUI.
  • If your Blood Alcohol Content level (BAC) is double the limit.
  • If your DUI arrest was due to an accident.
  • If any injuries or deaths resulted of your DUI.
  • If you rely on your driver’s license for employment.
  • If you do not understand your state’s DUI laws.
  • If you are worried about the outcome or the consequences you may face.
  • If you are concerned about a misdemeanor conviction.
  • If you are concerned with a DUI being on your record.

What Will An Attorney Do?

First and foremost, a DUI attorney will determine how to get your DUI to minimally impact you and your life. They will assess your particular case, and help you to understand the consequences that may be involved, such as probation, minor penalties, big fines, or jail time. A DUI attorney can also help in handling any required forms that need to be completed, making any necessary phone calls, or representing you when needed. An experienced DUI attorney also knows specific laws, as well as the ins and outs of the court process, which can help to determine which argument will help you and your particular case. In the event that you are facing a sentence, an attorney can help in making a plea or sentence bargain.

It is critical to only seek the representation of an attorney that is experienced with DUI defense cases. Contact Cosley Law Office if you have any questions, or are in need of representation for your DUI case.
