What can an attorney do for me?
That depends in part on the attorney. DUI law is extremely complicated and the penalties very harsh. For this reason, many highly competent criminal defense lawyers who routinely handle serious felonies refuse to take DUI cases. Anyone in the criminal justice system will tell you the same thing: Hire the best DUI lawyer you can afford, period. A skilled, experienced, respected DUI defense attorney can do a great deal to soften the blow of a DUI arrest.
