The Law Offices of J. Scott Smith knows that when you have been arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI or DWI), this is not something you should be taking lightly. This is not like appearing in traffic court and thinking you can simply talk your way out of a serious fine or loss of license. With the DUI case, you are going to be going face-to-face with the arresting officer who will have a pile of evidence to use against you. Make the mistake of going to court without a DUI lawyer and you could suffer financially for many years to come.
Your DWI lawyer has been in that court many times this month, and they have a professional relationship with the judges, prosecutors, and even the police officers. This doesn’t mean they will get any favors, but it does mean they will treat your lawyer fairly. Your attorney will be in the position to plea deal less fees or jail time if ordered.
Your DUI lawyer will carefully analyze all the evidence represented in the case by the police and be able to find any technical issues that could cause the case to be dismissed. These technicalities are something you as a civilian would never even be aware of, but your lawyer does understand how things work and can use any discrepancies to help in your defense.
If the case is pending and your lawyer still needs more time to gather evidence on your behalf, the are able to delay the case legally so that by the time you do show up for your case, your DUI attorney should have all the ducks in a row and get you the best possible outcome.
Your DUI lawyer has the power and the experience to be able to subpoena the arresting officer and make certain that your rights were upheld throughout the entire arrest process. The police must treat each case the same and follow the law to the letter. if anything was done outside of the law, your attorney will be in a position to get the charges lessened or the case dropped altogether.
Now you see all the reasons you have to have professional legal representation in your corner when it comes to dealing with a DUI case. Don’t wreck your financial future by taking a chance on fighting the system on your own.
