If you or a loved one has been charged or arrested for DUI, your top priority should be finding an experienced attorney who will fight for you and your loved ones. However, choosing a DUI lawyer can be difficult with so many lawyers to choose from. Your choice can either make or break your case.

Here are five tips to help you navigate the myriad choices and help you choose the best DUI attorney for you:

Experience: Find an attorney who has experience in handling DUI cases and has worked in the jurisdiction where you were arrested. This will work to your benefit because he or she will fully understand DUI defensive tactics. In addition, they will understand the system better and may be acquainted with the judge and district attorney on your case.

Credentials and Accreditations: Choose an attorney who is qualified and has sufficient knowledge in the field. Ask for the lawyer’s credentials and accreditations. This information will demonstrate the caliber of the lawyer.

References: Select a lawyer who offers references. A top-notch attorney should have acquired several clients that are willing to tell you how their case went and how effectively the attorney participated in their case.

Avoiding Attorneys Who Have Been Disciplined: If the potential lawyer has been disciplined by the bar, move on to another choice. A disreputable attorney is the last thing you want.

Cost: Determine the attorney’s fee. While it is not advisable to choose a lawyer based on price alone, you will need to make sure you can cover all the expenses. Ask about it up front, along with any available payment plans.
