Why You Need a DWI Lawyer

When the unfortunate circumstances of a DWI charge are upon you, it’s natural to question whether you actually need legal representation. The cost associated with hiring a legal professional may seem daunting, but the benefits of having an experienced attorney handling your case will always outweigh the expense.

DWI convictions are extremely costly and can have serious ramifications beyond the simple fine and potential jail time associated with the charge. The professional fallout of a DWI can be significant for many careers, and a public defender may not have all the tools and tricks of an experienced DWI attorney.

How a DWI Lawyer Can Help

While the decision to hire a lawyer will always depend on your current position both personally and financially, there are various things a DWI attorney can do for you, such as:

  • Educate you. Most people do not fully understand the consequences a DWI conviction can carry. With multiple offenses the penalties increase dramatically, and the breadth of knowledge an experienced DWI lawyer can offer may influence how you choose to go about your case.
  • Remove the Hassle. Maneuvering the bureaucratic systems in place to manage DWI charges and trials is extremely time-consuming and taxing. The benefit of saving yourself the disruption to your personal and professional life that handling the case yourself would entail should not be under-valued.
  • Represent you Effectively. The courtroom environment is not friendly to novices. An experienced attorney who knows the inner workings of the legal system is much more likely to be able to secure lesser sentences and plea bargains than a public defender or self-representative.
