All DUI lawyers practise criminal law, but a DUI case cannot be attempted by all criminal attorneys. In a specialised practise, DWI attorneys participate. You are not in a position to trust just any criminal attorney with your defence. Instead, if your state bar has such a designation, attempt to find an attorney who has a DUI specialisation or certification. If not, try to determine whether your prospective lawyer is familiar with those problems that are specific to the defence of DUI.Learn more about us at G&S DUI Attorneys at Law-Chicago Dui Lawyer
The use of an initializer, diabetes and hypoglycaemia, horizontal gaze and nystagmus, and other such tests include some of these issues. With this type of specialised knowledge, you will pay more for a DUI attorney, but are you really in a position to mount a “on the cheap?” defence? A lawyer who specialises in DUI defence will charge a higher fee than a general practitioner or criminal lawyer. They have specialised knowledge that you need and they understand that a higher rate of compensation is commanded by their services. Do not hesitate to talk with your lawyer about the issue of attorney’s fees early in the conversation. One of two kinds of fee arrangements will probably be quoted to you. The lawyer will either agree to take the case for a flat fee or for an hourly rate. You will be required to post a retainer (or down payment) for the services of your lawyer in either situation. Prior to the trial, the balance of the fee is due and you will owe it regardless of the result. DWI litigation is complex. You will probably understand that your defence is not a “do it yourself” project when it comes to a DWI. Instead, you need to find a competent DUI attorney that will prove their case to the state. He will have the expertise and knowledge to challenge the evidence and to raise all probable and legitimate defences.
