If you are arrested for a DUI in Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Brighton, Englewood, or any city in the Front Range, do you need to have a DUI attorney or can you represent yourself?

Getting arrested for a DUI or DWAI in Denver can be scary many people every day face the same questions:  What will happen to my license, will I lose my current job or will future jobs reject me, and do I need a lawyer?

Getting a trained DUI attorney can help you answer these questions and guide you through a difficult process.  

A DUI Lawyer will Explain the Case and Sentences to You

Do you have a friend who just won’t go to a doctor?  No matter how often they lose sleep or run a fever, they just never go.  It’s as if your friend would rather just tough it out instead of having a trained and knowledgeable expert explain things and provide treatment.  Sometimes it’s fear.  Some people would rather not know.  Sometimes it’s the lack of resources or medical coverage.  Maybe even the inability to take time off from work to wait at a clinic.

People charged with DUI crimes are sort of like your friend.  Some people just don’t want to deal with the hassle or expense of hiring a trained DUI lawyer.  Maybe it won’t be that difficult, they think.  Heck, I can go to court and the prosecutor will tell me what I should do–what could possibly go wrong with that?  The answer is: a lot.  Please remember that not every DA is the kind and friendly prosecutors from a TV show.

There is a reason why people hire DUI or DWAI attorneys for help.  This is a speciality, kind of like a doctor who trains in an area of medicine.  You wouldn’t go to a general practitioner for an eye surgery.  It doesn’t make sense with doctors and this is very much the case with the law.  People who have lawyers get better results, learn more about potential defenses, and leave the case feeling like they know exactly what can happen as a result of an arrest, conviction, or dismissal.

So for example, even if you have been driving and had been drinking, we can sometimes find errors in the police procedure or in the case that can make the difference between a conviction and dismissal.  Wouldn’t you want to know for sure?  A trained DUI lawyer who spends time in the courts and meeting with prosecutors knows how to “speak the language” used by DAs.  We spend a ton of time developing positive relationships and we can use this good will on behalf of clients.  People we work with know we are careful, aggressive and ethical and when we make an argument on behalf of a client, prosecutors know we have put much thought into the case.

Even if You Have Been Driving Drunk, a DUI Attorney Can Help

Do I still need an attorney if I am guilty of a DUI and was driving under the influence?  Yes, an attorney can help regardless of whether you are guilty or innocent of a DUI.  Even if you are dead set on pleading guilty to a charge, it is a good idea to at least confer with a lawyer to make sure that you are making the best choice.  What if you found out after meeting with a DUI lawyer that you do not have to plead guilty?  What if you found out that instead of running into court and getting a terrible sentence, if you let an attorney play your cards the right way, you could be better off?

Why not at least find out?
