The Difference Between a DUI Profesional and a Wannabe

Share it Please

Robert Frost once said:

A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.

bad DUI lawyer Do you seriously want him defending your DUI?

Choosing the right lawyer is a decision that can have a profound effect on the outcome of your case.  A good lawyer will do everything they can to protect your rights while a bad lawyer can lead to you getting falsely convicted.  The Innocence Project lists bad lawyering as one of the leading causes of false convictions.  The difference between truly professional lawyers and bad lawyers is even more pronounced in DUI cases where the bulk of the evidence is scientific and complex.

So how can the average client tell the difference between a good lawyer and a bad one?

Here are some tell-tale signs for you to keep in mind:

Professional DUI LawyerWannabe (DrumpTruck) DUI LawyerGoal: To Thoroughly and aggressively defend the rights of their clientsGoal: To process their cases as quickly as possibleLimits their caseload to ensure every case is given the proper amount of time and attentionTakes on as many clients as possibleTakes cases to trial and fights in the courtroomPushes for a lot of guilty pleas and quick dealsShows their commitment to DUI defense by spending their time and money to attend advanced DUI seminarsRelies only on what they learned in law school (which is nothing about DUI)Is willing to provide references from the top lawyers in the countryThe top lawyers in the country don’t know themUses expert witnesses at trialsDoesn’t go to trials in the first placeSpeaks in specific confident terms and keeps you informedSpeaks in general non-specific terms and doesn’t focus on the details of the caseAfter all is said and done has done everything they can to get the best result possibleLeaves you asking yourself “What if I had chosen a Professional?”
