If you've been arrested for a DUI, one of the first things you'll want to do is hire a DUI lawyer to help you with your case. There are probably many DUI attorneys in your area, so picking the right lawyer to help you can feel overwhelming.

Below are a few questions to ask yourself and the lawyer(s) you'll be talking to...

Does the attorney specialize in DUI law? One thing you really don't want to do is hire an attorney who knows nothing about DUI laws and procedures. A lawyer who is familiar with DUI law should be highly specialized in this area and have access to updated DUI laws and information.

Is the attorney affiliate with any associations? A credible DUI attorney should be affiliated with at least one association and be an active member.

How experienced is the attorney in DUI law? You want to hire an attorney who has a decent amount of DUI experience. However, keep in mind also that just because someone has years of experience, it doesn't really mean they're good at what they do.

Do you feel like you can trust this attorney? Do you feel comfortable when you're talking with this attorney? Does he/she treat you with respect? Does he/she talk down on you? Is he/she patient and upfront with you? Always trust your gut feeling.

Do the fees include all services? The attorney should be able to explain exactly what he/she will do for you and let you know if there are any hidden fees or extra charges for other services.

Hiring the perfect DUI attorney for you is important because your driving privileges are on the line!
