Why You Need a Private Criminal DUI Lawyer

If you have been charged with DUI, you need a criminal lawyer, and if you can possibly afford it, you should make sure that you have an experienced private criminal DUI lawyer.

There are some very intelligent, dedicated attorneys working in the various public defender offices around Washington State, but the sad truth is that there are simply not enough of them to handle the amount of cases that come through their doors. Many accused persons are forced to rely on them as their criminal DUI lawyers, and they quickly see the disadvantage they are at.

Driving under the influence is a surprisingly complex crime, and if you want to ensure that you are treated fairly, then you are going to require a criminal DUI lawyer with the time necessary for investigating, researching, and defending your case. Public defenders simply do not have that time. You will be unlikely to be able to speak to a public defender outside of court, and you will be lucky to have the same public defender at each of your hearings.

Here are the main advantages of a private criminal DUI lawyer:

- They will have the time to investigate your case and prepare adequately.
- You will always have the same attorney at your hearings - someone familiar with you.
- You will be able to speak to your attorney outside of court.
- You will have someone who wants to work with you, and whose reputation depends on their performance.

You should keep these ideas in mind when you go looking for an attorney, because not all criminal DUI lawyers are created equally. Some take on large amounts of cases in order to make more money, and with a criminal DUI lawyer like that you may be no better off than with a public defender. Others may attempt to lure you in by talking about their own experience, then pass you off to an inexperienced attorney in their office and suddenly become unreachable.
