Do I need a lawyer if I am arrested for a DUI?

Posted by David Jones on Dec 18, 2013


If you want to reduce the potential damage to your future and your life from a DUI conviction, it is strongly advised that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for assistance in defending you.  If you do not defend yourself and simply plead guilty, you are at the mercy of the court regarding the sentence you receive.  An Attorney can assist you by fighting the charge, seeking to reduce the charge, or pursuing alternative sentencing options, depending on the circumstances of your case.

DUI cases are a high priority for law enforcement agencies in Fresno, Madera, Kings and Tulare counties and surrounding areas, and they are taking a hard stand against anyone cited for or charged with driving while intoxicated.  However, you can successfully fight the charge, depending on the circumstances of your case.  In fact only 61% of the DUI arrests in Fresno county result in a DUI conviction, so you do have a fighting chance!

Your choice of attorney can be critical to the outcome of your case.
