There are many DUI defense attorneys/lawyers willing to assist you with your DUI (Driving Under the Influence) case, but how do you which one to trust? Here are some things to think about before you make the decision to hire a lawyer:

1. What kind of experience has the lawyer had in DUI/DWI defense? Of course, the more experienced DUI/DWI lawyer is, the better they are at getting the resources together to help you with your case.

2. Is the lawyer easily accessible? Can you contact him/her by phone and email and receive a quick response? If you're constantly playing phone tag or talking to a lawyer's secretary, then you might be dealing with the wrong lawyer.

3. Who will actually be representing you in court? Is the actual lawyer going to be in court with you or will he/she send an assistant?

4. Is the lawyer approachable and easy to talk to? What's your comfort level with this person? You want to hire an drunk driving defense lawyer who is open and honest with you.

Don't rush the process when hiring DUI lawyer. Also, don't hire someone just because he/she has lower fees. Your future and driver's license are on the line. You want someone who will represent you to the best of their ability and has a sincere desire to help you.
