Hiring a DUI Attorney in Pennsylvania

Information and Tips to Consider Before Hiring a DUI Lawyer

There is much at stake when you are charged with DUI in Pennsylvania, including a criminal record, jail time, and losing your license.

Many people who are charged with driving under the influence of either drugs or alcohol in Pennsylvania seek information on how to limit the penalties of their charges or to fight the charges in court.

Unfortunately, many people quickly discover that this can be a confusing process. To better their chances of winning a DUI case or having their charges reduced, most people will call a DUI lawyer for a consultation to find out more about their options and whether they should hire a DUI attorney to handle their case.

When speaking to an attorney, it is important to remember that you will be paying this person to represent your life, your future, and your rights. You don’t want to hire the wrong person or a big law firm that will get your case lost in the shuffle.

It is important to speak with someone as soon as possible and to not fall into the mindset that just because you were charged with DUI, you will be convicted or must receive the harshest penalty. There are many options available to have charges reduced or dismissed, including the ARD Program for first offenders.

When you do decide to hire a DUI attorney, you will want to hire a person who seems genuinely interested in understanding your case, your situation, and someone who wants to help you keep your driver’s license and your charges to a minimum, if not have them dropped altogether.

You also want to hire a DUI Lawyer with experience, a proven track record, excellent reviews from previous clients and is upfront with you about the possible outcome of your case. (If someone insinuates something too good to be true, it probably is).

Below are some tips and questions you may want to ask the attorney you speak with before hiring them. You will also want to talk to more than one attorney to get an idea of fees and how personally involved they will be in your case.

Tips on Hiring a DUI Lawyer in Pennsylvania

1) Find out if the attorney or law firm has good reviews and client testimonials.

There are a few key places to read reviews about attorneys: Avvo and Google Business Profile are the two major websites that allow users to leave reviews. You may also find reviews on a lawyer’s website, but keep in mind they are unlikely to allow any bad reviews on their website, whereas Avvo and Google will include reviews that are less than stellar.

Many larger law firms have hundreds of reviews and this may be a sign that they have a lot of cases and may not be as attentive to your case.

2) Make sure whoever you hire has experience and a proven track record for winning DUI cases.

The best way to find out this information is to simply ask the attorney when you speak to them. Ask them how many cases they have handled in their career and what percentage of their caseload is DUI cases. If they don’t have a good answer or their answer sounds over the top, you can get a feel for whether they have much experience.

Also ask how personally involved the attorney will be in your case. You do not want to hire a law firm, only to find out they will hand down your case to a junior attorney or not be there when you need them or have questions.

3) Find an attorney familiar with your local area and the prosecutors and court system where your case will be held.

Ask the attorney which jurisdiction they generally represent clients and what their relationship is like with local prosecutors and the District Attorney’s office. If they have good working relationships and are familiar with the court system for the county, it is a sign that they may be able to better negotiate and work through the system more thoroughly and swiftly.

4) Explain your DUI charges and your situation to the attorney

Before hiring an attorney, make sure you give them all the details of your case. This will help both of you to better prepare and understand your options.

At Wana Saadzoi Law we get that people make mistakes and sometimes people are not guilty as charged – we are not here to judge but to help improve your circumstances. The best way for us to do that is to know what we are up against.

5) Inquire about legal fees

Make sure you fully understand the terms of the agreement before signing on with any attorney or law firm. Ask about the prices and what is included. Also, ask what types of payment methods they accept.

All of the above will get you started in hiring a DUI attorney. Make sure the attorney you decide on feels like the best fit and is someone you feel comfortable working with.

A DUI Arrest Does Not Necessarily Mean You Will Be Convicted

While being charged with DUI is very serious and the penalties of DUI and lasting consequences are scary, it is important to remember that not every DUI arrest ends up as a DUI conviction. There are options to avoid a criminal record, losing your license, and jail time.

Speak with an experienced DUI attorney as soon as possible to go over your options and fight for your charges to be either reduced or dropped altogether.
