How Do I Find a Good DUI Lawyer?

It may seem difficult and overwhelming to select a DUI lawyer immediately following your arrest. We advise you not simply choose the first DUI lawyer you come across in your quick internet search, but that you put a bit more thought and effort into it.

There are plenty of lawyers in Phoenix and throughout Arizona who do not limit their practice to DUI and criminal cases and some of these lawyers only handle a few cases a year. Unfortunately, some Phoenix DUI lawyers may even be incompetent or inexperienced.

To find good Phoenix area Arizona DUI lawyer, we suggest that you ask the following questions:

1. Does your firm have lawyers who are highly experienced in DUI and criminal defense cases?

2. Does your firm have access to the State’s most experienced expert witnesses on the forensic testing of blood and breath alcohol? Are they willing to bring in co-counsel in order to maximize the effectiveness of your case?

3. Does your firm use a written flat fee agreement that includes trial if necessary? Or is the “fee” only a low initial retainer that does not cover the entire case or Motor Vehicle Department hearing?

4. Will your firm actually handle the case or will you simply sign me up and refer me to another attorney or firm?

5. Do the lawyers at your firm know the courts? The judges? Are you willing to go to trial? How many cases have you tried?
