A Drunk Driving Defense Attorney Can Help

If you decided to hire an attorney to represent you in your DUI case, make sure you have the following information available for your initial contact:

  1. Do you have any previous drunk driving convictions? If so, how many?
  2. Were you involved in an accident? If so, was anyone injured?
  3. If you were given a field sobriety test, what type was administered? Breathalyzer? Alphabet? Counting? Balance? Other?
  4. Make a bulleted list of the major facts of your case, and compile a timeline. This will not only help your attorney, but will also help keep the facts fresh in your memory. On a more general note, these two documents are helpful in almost any area of the law for record keeping purposes.

Most importantly, remember that everything you tell your attorney regarding your case will remain confidential. It is more important to disclose anything that might be relevant to your case, so that your attorney can get a complete picture.
