Should you hire a DUI attorney?

If you are facing a DUI charge in Massachusetts, you may be wondering if you should hire an attorney. When weighing the other costs associated with a DUI, you may consider saving the money and defending the charge on your own, but this is not usually a good idea. A good attorney can be beneficial in many ways.

According to FindLaw, hiring an attorney is a good idea because a DUI has serious consequences. An attorney who has knowledge about sobriety tests, such as a breathalizer, blood tests and field tests, may be able to challenge the results in your case. A lawyer may also be able to bargain with the judge so you do not have to go through a trial, which may reduce some of the penalties. An attorney is also imperative if you hurt or killed someone as a result of your driving while intoxicated. 

Very Well Mind discusses that hiring a DUI attorney is definitely a good idea if you were not drinking at all and failed the sobriety tests. It also says that an attorney does not guaranty a not-guilty verdict or even a reduced fine or jail time, but he or she may be helpful in walking you through the process. Things can be very confusing, especially if this is your first DUI. An attorney can walk you through everything and make sure you fulfill requirements, such as alcohol classes and filling out the proper forms, so you can get your license and life back as quickly as possible.
