No One Expects to Get Arrested for DUI Has a Bad Situation Upended Your Life? Don't Face it Alone. 

No One Expects to Get Arrested for DUI

No one expects to get arrested for DUI. A few drinks too many and suddenly you can find yourself in the back of a police car asking, “how did this happen?”

If this happens to you, an experienced DUI lawyer can help.

The question is: how do you choose the right attorney for you?

1) Do Your Research

If you are arrested for DUI, ask family and friends for referrals. Check out ratings on sites like Yelp and Avvo. Hiring a lawyer is a personal decision, and you should feel confident with the lawyer that you retain.

2) Hire an Attorney Focused on DUI Law

DUI law is complicated and it pays to hire a specialist. In order to successfully defend a DUI case, your lawyer needs to understand both law and science.

3) Be Careful of Big Promises

Many attorneys will claim that they can help you and that with their help, you will hit a “home run.” This is almost always misleading and does a disservice to a potential client. Keep in mind, it is illegal to guarantee an outcome, so promises as to outcomes should not be trusted.

4) Don’t Decide Purely Based on Cost

After you are arrested for DUI, make your decision to hire a lawyer based on their experience and your comfort with them, not just the cost. Fees for California DUI lawyers range from as little as $1,000 to $20,000 or more. Make sure that you get what you pay for. Also keep in mind that you must contact the DMV within 10 days to schedule a hearing or your license will be suspended. One we are retained, we immediately contact the DMV on your behalf.

5) Pick a Lawyer That You Believe In

If you don’t feel strongly that you have found the right person, it may be a sign it’s not the right fit. Find an attorney that believes in your case and understands your objectives. Life is too short for half hearted lawyering.

While being arrested is an unpleasant experience for anyone, we are here to vigorously represent you and help you get the best possible outcome.
