Things you might need to know if you've been arrested for an offense like Drunk Driving. If you are interested, read on. If you're in need of a Minnesota Criminal Defense attorney - CALL or TEXT: (612) 619-0262.
One reason is that they think that attorneys are far too expensive for them to afford. Well, the truth is that lawyers ARE pricey - but they're nowhere near as expensive as a DWI conviction.
A good attorney can cost you anywhere between from $1,000 to up to $5,000 (or more) to handle your case from the first hearing through to the jury's verdict.
While this isn't as expensive as many people believe - I agree it can put quite a big dent in your budget.
How can I say this "isn't expensive" - well, consider what a DWI conviction often means something more than money. Sure, there are the fines, the court-ordered classes and examinations, the driver's license reinstatement fee - and the hit to your insurance; but, you also have to think about the consequences to your future if you incur a criminal conviction.
Now, I'm not just saying this because I am an attorney, talk to your friends and family who have employed the services of a good, experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney --- good lawyers can make sure that you avoid the some of the pitfalls listed above.
Ask yourself this, who knows better what's going on in court room - you or an attorney? Who is going to get a case dismissed, evidence excluded, or a decent settlement for you - can you do that? Or do you need an attorney?
When you're sick, you go to a doctor. When you legally unhealthy, you should talk to a lawyer.
