6 Solid Questions When Hiring Your Bristol Bay Drunk Driving Attorney

Bristol Bay is known to have some of the highest tides in the world.  This combined with their high winds does not mesh well with drinking and driving.  Therefore, you should make sure to drink responsibly and have a designated driver take you home if you have had too much to drink.  If you do not, you could be subject to heavy Alaska DUI penalties.  These may include having an ignition interlock device installed on your automobile, having your driver's license taken away, going to jail, major fines, attending alcohol rehabilitation and more.  As you can see, a DUI in Bristol Bay is serious and you will need to hire an experienced drunk driving attorney if you drive under the influence and get caught.

Below are questions you may want to ask when looking for your Bristol Bay DUI lawyer: 

  1. For how long have they been practicing law- Education is important but experience is huge so make sure you hire someone who has been practicing for at least a couple of years.  
     
  2. How long have they specialized in handling DUIs- You may also want to ask how many Alaska DUI cases they have handled.  Knowing Alaska DUI laws and how to challenge them could play a major role in your case.
     
  3. Will they handle your case on their own- At some firms your first meeting is with a very experienced lawyer only to have it turned over to someone else after you have already hired them.  By discussing this prior to hiring them, you can make sure you get the person you desire to handle your case.
     
  4. What is their normal caseload like and what is it like currently-If their caseload seems abnormally high then you may want to seek services from another Bristol Bay DUI attorney.  You do not want them to lack the ability to give your case the attention it needs.
     
  5. How do they like to bill-Some lawyers prefer to bill a flat fee while others prefer to charge by the hour.  Understanding this early on will allow you to negotiate appropriately and find out about any additional costs you could face.  No matter the billing method, make sure you get everything in writing.
     
  6. Can they win your case- They should not give you a definite answer and if they do, they are not being truthful with you.  If, on the other hand, they notify you of what they think might happen and provide you with some realistic expectations then they have armed you with helpful insight.
