When you face a DUI charge, you need a competent Los Angeles DUI attorney to defend you. Often the driver who is arrested for DUI does not realize how dangerous their case is. DUI is one of the most expensive misdemeanors on the books. For decades, politicians have been making the penalties steeper and steeper—and the state will throw the book at you.
You need someone on your side who will fight just as hard. Without a lawyer, you have to face a complicated legal process on your own. You have no one who knows how to subpoena the police, request evidence, or question the accuracy of a Breathalyzer test. These are tactics that DUI defense lawyers use to minimize the evidence against you, which can help you win your case or reduce the charges.
Without a good lawyer, you’ll be left trying to understand the system on your own. Even if you’re assigned a public by the state, they will not help you in your DMV hearing to keep your license. They may treat your case as just another file number and they often just recommend you plead guilty. When you hire a DUI lawyer, you have a skilled professional gunning to get you a better plea deal, get the charges against you dropped, or even win your case outright.
The penalties for a DUI in Los Angeles are tough:
- Mandatory jail time, even for a first offense
- Automatic suspension of your license unless you win at a DMV hearing
- Suspended/restricted driving privileges for a minimum of four months—often years
- Easily $4,000 or more in fines and court costs, depending on the type of offense
