Picking the Best DUI Attorney for Your Case

How to Pick the Best DUI Lawyer in Orlando for Your Case

Choosing the best DUI lawyer suited for your case, as soon as possible, is going to play a tremendous role in how things go in court. A DUI, whether it is because of alcohol or other chemical substances, can be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances such as a DUI with serious bodily injury. A criminal lawyer is needed because penalties can be as follows:

  • License suspended for six months to a year
  • Hardship license needs to be applied for
  • Probation
  • Jail time possible
  • Fines
  • SR-22 insurance coverage may raise your premiums
  • Court Costs
  • Impoundment
  • Alcohol evaluation and treatment

These are just some of the penalties that the judge can administer, but if this was a repeated offense or if there were serious injuries, penalties go much higher. Therefore, you need to really find someone competent who is the best DUI lawyer suited to your needs.

Here are some great ways of determining which DUI attorney you’re looking for will be a good fit:

  • This may seem obvious, but you want a lawyer that has not only been practicing for a long time, but has handled many DUI cases. You may meet with an attorney that has been practicing for over two decades, but if they’ve only handled 4 DUI cases during that time, they may not be your best bet.
  • High quality Martindale-Hubbell and Avvo Ratings
  • Attorneys that were former prosecutors are often times helpful to retain
  • You want an attorney that will NOT attempt to promise a specific result of your case.

the first thing to do is to find a lawyer that understands the charges, and can make sense of this confusion that is invading your life. Choosing the best lawyer means arranging with a good criminal DUI attorney in Orlando for a free consultation. See to it that you are comfortable talking with this attorney, and that both of you are upfront and honest about the entire situation. Make certain that the attorney offers you information that relates to the arrest, and he/she doesn’t say things like “I’ll handle it all, don’t worry” because you need to be informed in every detail in the case.
