With new legislation comes new DUI laws and changes to existing DUI laws. However, judges and prosecutors are less likely to change and often. Hopefully, though, your attorney has worked with the majority of them. When you hire an attorney, you should use the same consideration you would when presenting yourself and making a first impression to people. Because, when you think of the word “representation,” that is exactly what your attorney will be for you. The firm you hire and the attorney who stands up in court for you are a representation of you, presenting your side and with a character that reflects upon you. The court doesn’t know you, but they may know your attorney and if they don’t, they will get to know him or her as your representation.
You need an attorney who stays current on all legislative changes and who can build the strongest defense for you. This is vital when you understand that a DUI cannot be expunged from your record and stays with you for life, becoming yet another representation of yourself that potential employers and landlords will see and may find unfavorable.
If a defense is not possible, there is a chance your attorney can work out a deal with prosecutors and present a better option that will not carry the same weight nor stay on your record for life.
