When Should I Hire a Lawyer for My DUI Case?

When Should I Hire a Lawyer for My DUI Case in Philadelphia?

The reality is that a DUI is a serious offense and one for which you should retain counsel. Becuase DUI is a criminal matter in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, you should consider hiring counsel for a DUI as you would if faced with any other criminal charge. This may seem strange to you, since many think of a DUI as just another traffic violation. This is not the case. As such, you should retain counsel for a DUI as soon as reasonably possible. That being said, it is important that you know and trust the Attorney you hire. So do yourself a favor, and spend some time today exercising due diligence before hiring an attorney.

We at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. urge you to call us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our DUI Attorneys. We are more than happy taking the time to sit down with you and discuss your case, and to answer any preliminary questions you may have. Please, take the time to review additional DUI content on our websites; we have gone to great lengths to provide you extensive coverage for DUI's. This is intended to help you have a better understanding of DUI's, and have more productive discussion with our staff and your future counsel, regardless of who you choose to represent you.

But Why Do I Need to Retain Counsel So Soon?

By retaining counsel:

  • You can eliminate the possibility you will make an error, as you will have counsel at your side throughout the entirety of the process.
  • The matter may be resolved more quickly, as your attorney will be provided with more time to obtain discovery, and therefore be will less likely to need postponements in order to obtain the aforementioned discovery prior to court dates.
  • Judges and prosecutors are very busy and appreciate expediency, so it cannot hurt you to cultivate a good relationship with these parties. Removing even a slight amount of the adversarial nature of this process can only help if/when discussing a plea in your case.

In addition, most clients take great comfort once they have retained counsel. It is important to know that someone is on your side and working for your interests. You have a life to live in the here and now, and having a DUI hanging over your head left unchecked can prove quite distracting and worrisome.
