The Protection and Legal Advice DUI Attorneys Provide to Their Clients
Being pulled over for a DUI can be a terrifying and nerve-wracking experience. It can mean facing jail time, a loss of your driver’s license, as well as hefty fines and penalties. If it is a person’s first time facing this experience, they may feel lost and worried about what to expect. If a person has been charged with a DUI in the past, they know what to expect and realize that since this is a second or third offense, the fines and charges they will face will be a lot stiffer. In both of these instances, there are good reasons to hire a DUI attorney. The Benefits of Using an Attorney for Your First Offense Some individuals reason that if it is their first DUI, they can simply plead guilty and get a relatively light sentence. However, many are surprised when they realize the consequences that a guilty plea can have on their life, their finances, and their ability to get or maintain employment.
