Can a DUI Attorney Help Your Case?

People who make the mistake of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol would likely be making another mistake if they decide against hiring an attorney following a DUI arrest.

Without the expertise of a lawyer, a DUI conviction — and the stiff array of fines and penalties that come with it –  is all but guaranteed. In Washington State, penalties for a first offense include anywhere from a day to a year in jail, a fine between $865 and $5,000 and a mandatory 90-day driver’s license suspension. Then there’s the higher insurance costs, the effects on employment and the overall damage a DUI conviction does to a person’s permanent record.
