Why Do I Need an Attorney?
If you’re thinking, “An attorney is going to cost a lot of money,” well…you’re right. What you need to do is cast aside the fact this adventure is going to cost a lot of money. We all make mistakes, however some are more costly than others. Without an attorney, you might as well stamp a huge, “Hit me with all you got” stamp on your forehead before entering the courtroom. You need someone who knows the laws, loopholes and technicalities of the DUI laws to help reduce your penalty as much as possible…possibly even prevent your insurance rates from skyrocketing.
The penalties range from taking an Alcohol Education class to losing your license indefinitely. More and more state legislatures and activist groups (Ex: Mothers Against Drunk Driving) are pushing for harsher consequences for those convicted of a DUI.
