Redondo Beach Dui Lawyers
Being charged with driving while under the influence in Redondo Beach is a serious offense. When a person is facing a DUI charge, undoubtedly they feel worried and scared. They think to themselves, “Will I end up being incarcerated?” In their minds they may be thinking about the hefty fines that are levied against individuals who are convicted of driving while under the influence. They may worry that losing their license will cost them their job. All of these worries are legitimate. It is very possible that being charged with a DUI will result in some, if not all, of the above-mentioned consequences.
Because of the seriousness of being charged with a DUI and because of the long reaching consequences, many who are charged with a DUI immediately look for a DUI attorney. However, some may wonder, will hiring a DUI attorney really make a difference?
Is It Worth the Money?
The primary concern a person has when deciding to hire a DUI attorney is cost. They may wonder whether or not it is worth the money that they are going to have to spend hiring a DUI attorney. Something that must be very clear is that regardless of if this is the first time an individual has had a DUI offense or if they are a repeat offender, and regardless of whether or not this is an individual’s first interaction with the law or if they have a long criminal record, hiring a DUI attorney is going to be expensive.
Even though hiring a DUI attorney is expensive, it is far less expensive than the fees, loss of freedom, loss of employment and loss of the right to drive that being convicted of a DUI charge will bring. Being convicted of a DUI charge will affect the accused individual for years to come. It will affect their ability to get future employment. It will affect their ability to apply for and qualify for certain governmental jobs and programs. The professional defense provided by a DUI attorney provides accused individuals with the best chance for having a good outcome in court.
DUI Attorneys Understand the Law
The laws pertaining to a DUI defense are complicated. They are so complicated in fact that not every single lawyer out there is qualified to successfully defend a DUI charge. Our DUI attorneys have experience dealing with the court system. We understand what types of plea bargain deals might be available for an individual who is charged with a DUI. We are also familiar with the extremely complex administrative part of defending against a DUI charge.
Having a DUI attorney present is especially important if an individual is a repeat offender. The laws in the vast majority of the states in this country are extremely harsh for individuals who are repeat offenders. The situation becomes even more complicated if there are aggravating circumstances. For example, if in addition to driving while under the influence a person also engaged in reckless driving or someone was injured or a fatality occurred, the situation becomes even more serious.
