If you have yet to find an Alabama drunk driving lawyer, it is important to plead not guilty and hire a lawyer right away. Pleading guilty can ruin your chances of avoiding Montgomery County jail.

Hire an attorney. You may think that a Montgomery drunk driving lawyer is too expensive, but if you're serious about avoiding jail, then hiring one is a smart investment. A Montgomery DUI conviction comes with a lot of expenses that may cost you a lot more than it would if you had hired an attorney. Don't wait until it is too late. Fill out this form and be put in touch with up to 3 experienced Alabama DUI attorneys.

Opt for community service. In many cases, a judge will give you the option of performing community service instead of jail time. Speak with your attorney to see if this is an option for you.

Opt for treatment. Many judges believe that tackling a substance abuse problem is an important key in reducing repeat DUI offenders. It may be offered as a replacement to jail.

Inquire about other jail alternatives. In addition to community service and treatment, other jail alternatives may be available, including work furlough or ankle monitoring. Your attorney will know what is best for you so it is important to consult with him or her to see if these alternatives are an option.
