When Should You Hire a DUI Attorney?

031987737-defense-lawyer-client-court.jpegIt is important to hire a DUI attorney at the onset of being interrogated or charged with a DUI in Ann Arbor, Michigan. A DUI attorney can help you navigate through the criminal justice system and provide a legal defense to any claim(s) the prosecutor may bring forth against you.

Though more individuals are handling their own DUI cases, doing so is extremely risky and could result in you serving unwanted jail time. You should contact an Ann Arbor DUI attorney for a free consultation to discuss the charge(s) asserted against you and the legal action you can take to protect your innocence.

The Benefits of Hiring a DUI Attorney ASAP

If you hire a DUI attorney at the onset of your case, your attorney will have a sufficient amount of time to review the charge(s) asserted against you and gather evidence to defend you while formulating a viable defense. Depending on your attorney's legal experience, he/she can get the charge(s) against you reduced or completely dismissed.

If you hire an attorney in the middle of your case, say right before you go to trial, you may miss the opportunity to possibly enter into a plea deal, or have evidence excluded through pre-trial motions.

Being convicted of a DUI can affect both your social life and career prospects. If you are convicted of a DUI in Michigan, you will not be able to later expunge the conviction. The conviction will come up on all criminal background checks conducted on your behalf. Hire an attorney ASAP to protect your legal rights.
