Have You Been Arrested for DWI?

An arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious matter and a conviction has significant punishments. Depending upon the circumstances, an arrest does not necessarily mean you will be found guilty.

DWI Legal Issues

The best thing to do is immediately consult with a Chicago DWI attorney. The attorney can be present when police question you to protect your rights. Your attorney may be able to challenge the accuracy of the BAC test or the knowledge or experience of the person conducting the test and invoke other defenses.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
