Nobody that I know goes out on a Friday or Saturday night expecting to get a DUI on their
way home from the bar or party they were just at. The truth is that it happens way more than
most of us expect and uite often peop!e are !eft in a desperate attempt to find a good DUI
!awyer in the fo!!owing days.
There are some things that you shou!d be aware of in a situation !ike this" but how shou!d one
start their search# I shou!d start off by te!!ing you that I am not a !awyer and this shou!d not be
misconstrued as !ega! representation for your case" but rather an opinion of somebody who has
been in this situation and is offering ad$ice from their perspecti$e.

0ake sure these !awyers work in the area of practice with DUI1s. 2ook around to see if you
can find peop!e ta!king about them on socia! media sites or e$en re!ated forums" you wou!d be
surprised at how much information that you can find this way. I a!so recommend ca!!ing these

after a!! you are putting your dri$ing pri$i!eges in their hands.
The fina! thing that you shou!d !ook for is whether any of these !aw firms offer a free
consu!tation. This is $ery important for a !ot of peop!e because not e$eryone can afford to
