What can a good DUI defense lawyer do for me?

Having a good DUI defense lawyer can make the experience far less stressful. They can answer your questions, prepare you for the proceedings each step of the way, recommend alcohol treatment agencies, ignition interlock companies and ensure that if there is a way to help you, that they will find it. Oftentimes, a successful DUI defense may mean a substantial reduction of the charges rather than a dismissal. In this scenario, you are able to accept some responsibility, while at the same time mitigating the long term effects. Most importantly, they will communicate with you. If you can't communicate with your lawyer, there is a good chance that no one else can either and it can make a painful chapter in your life much worse.
