What You Should Know If You Have Been Charged with a DUI

DUI-LawyerIf you have been charged with a DUI, you should retain a DUI attorney to help you fight it. An attorney can steer you in the right direction and advise you of current DUI laws and penalties. Having a DUI charge is serious and without proper legal representation, you are risking your driving privilege and taking a chance on paying higher fees if you handle it alone.

It’s very important to bring your attorney up to speed on everything connected with your case. The attorney can only work with the facts given to him. You will also want the attorney to know your history of DUI cases, if you have been charged before. That alone will play a major part in your final settlement, so make sure your attorney is aware of all the facts, no matter how trivial. Sometimes even a small piece of information can make a big difference in how the case is handled and what the end result will be.

With so much at stake, including possible suspension of your driver’s license,  ignition interlock, possible jail time and  court fines and costs, you will need legal advice to help get the best deal you can based on the facts in your case. It will be in your best interest to secure an attorney as soon as possible.

Cases such as yours can have deadlines for filing certain paperwork so the earliest you secure an attorney to take your case, the better. That’s the right time to contact the Eagle Law Offices, P.S. at (206) 426-6961 or www.eaglelawoffices.com.
