How to Pick a Washington DC DUI Lawyer

Finding the right attorney isn’t easy. With these tips, you could find the attorney you need to help you avoid going to jail.

There are many things to consider when you are looking for representation for a Washington DC DUI.  However, Washington DC DUI laws are tough and you need to find someone with experience and knowledge that specializes in DUI law.  Remember, it is important to ask questions in order to learn more about the attorney you are interviewing so you can find the right Washington DC DUI lawyer for you and your case.

Here are a few questions you should ask so you can make an informed decision on who will provide you with the best representation:

  • How long have you been in practice? – This will allow you to learn more about the attorney’s experience.
  • What is your experience with representing people who have been charged with a DUI? - This will give you a better understanding of their knowledge of DUI law.
  • Have you ever handled a case such as mine? - Your case should not be a new experience for them.  If it is, find someone else who does have the experience.
  • Have you taken any cases to jury trial? – If your case does go to trial, your attorney needs to have trial experience.
  • Will you be handling my case yourself? – The lawyer you speak with may not be the person who handles the majority of your case.  It is important to know about this up front so you can find out who will be working on your case and what their qualifications are.
  • What are your fees for a case such as mine? – There are many costs to consider but a good attorney will be honest and give you a ballpark figure.  If the fees seem much lower than you anticipated, you should consider another attorney.
  • How do you typically communicate with clients about their cases? – Be certain that you understand and are comfortable with what the lawyer can offer as far as communication.  Otherwise, you will very likely not be happy.
  • What will be the result of my case? – Good attorneys will not make specific promises but they can promise to provide you with the best defense possible and with the challenges they see in your case and how they believe it could ultimately play out. 

Washington DC DUI laws are not something to face alone.  Take the time to find the right attorney for you.  Call now and speak with a skilled Washington DC DUI lawyer who is prepared to fight for your freedom!
