The Go To Lawyer for DUI
Many citizens arrested for DUI have never had a run-in with the law before. And though many do not even have a criminal record, they are treated like criminals – before they are even convicted of DUI. If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI, don’t let your rights be violated. Instead, immediately contact DUI defense attorney Holly Veal.
Experienced and well-respected by her adversaries, DUI defense attorney Holly Veal concentrates on DUI defense in the metro area. For attorneys who do not specialize in DUI defense it can be impossible to keep up with the ever-changing DUI laws, penalties and, most importantly, DUI defenses.
Although you may think hiring an attorney won’t fit your budget, the truth is you can’t afford not to. Without adequate representation, you could be facing painful penalties such as heavy fines, jail time, loss of driver’s license, and the list goes on and on.
If you want to hire an attorney but don’t know where to start, you should research a list of attorneys and their credentials. Once you’ve narrowed down your top candidates, don’t be afraid to call them. Be sure to ask them specific questions: whether they have ever spoken at DUI seminars, whether they have had actual training on the field sobriety tests, and how many DUI jury trials they have handled. DUI law is a complicated field, and it’s best to find an attorney who regularly handles DUI cases.
Create a list of questions and expectations and present this to the attorney you’re interested in. He or she should be knowledgeable about DUI laws and the current changes have experience handling and winning DUI cases and be well-read on anything DUI-related. It’s a very good sign if your attorney is a frequent lecturer about DUI legal topics; this means that he or she is well-respected by the legal community.
Your attorney or an investigator working for your attorney should usually interview witnesses, always review police reports, obtain recordings of the dispatch radio traffic, and really dig deep when researching your case. We routinely obtain all of this and more, like the officer’s employment training, employment, and disciplinary history, as well as all the inspection documents (not just the certificate) for the Intoxilyzer 5000.
