The market's cluttered with so many DUI defense lawyers, folks wonder how to choose the right one. To get you started, here's a few tips from a South Carolina DUI defense attorney to help you find the best lawyer for you- even if it's not him.
Here's tips on hiring the right DUI lawyer for you. First it's about trust don't hire a lawyer unless you trust him or her with your future and reputation because that's what's at stake. So how do you do that? Well you should ask family, friends, and co-workers if they know anyone who defends these cases. Go on the internet, Google often shows client reviews. You can go to websites like Avvo.com, A-V-V-O which shows the types of cases a lawyer handles, will have a rating of the lawyer, and should have client reviews. Finally, go to the lawyer's website see if it contains helpful information about these cases that helps you measure his knowledge and experience.
When you meet with the lawyer asked him if he's ever written a report about these cases because that's a great way to figure out his experience and his knowledge base. Also find out how many of these cases he’s handled, how long he's been handling up, and get his track record. While past results don't guarantee victory it's a great way for you to evaluate that lawyer’s effectiveness.
Finally if the lawyer’s cheap, run. Do you really want to discount your future in your reputation? If you really want to save money on something get a TV on sale. If you get the right DUI lawyer win your case you can buy that TV with the money you save in big fines, sr-22 insurance premiums, ad sat fees, and ignition interlock fees. So remember your case is about you you've got the right to choose the best lawyer for you and you owe it to yourself to make that happen because your future and your reputation are on the line. I hope I see you soon and thank you for thinking about this with me.
