Driving under the influence is not a simple matter like a parking ticket or getting tagged by a red light camera. A DUI charge is criminal arrest situation that is much more serious and can result in losing one’s driver’s license, ability to drive, serious financial penalties, expensive court fees, lost income or a career, and even jail time. And then, adding on top of everything else, is the social stigma that comes with having a known DUI conviction. The system and the community do not forget.

It is unfortunate that many people hesitate to call an attorney when faced with this kind of situation. One of the most common reasons for this hesitation, is financial concerns. Others may think that they do not need an attorney since it is only their first DUI charge. What most people do not realize is that the consequences could be even more costly if you do not call a skilled criminal defense attorney on the East Coast.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

Knowledgeable attorneys who specialize in this area of law, are familiar with the procedures and options available. A skilled attorney knows the laws of your state. They will be able to advise you on the best course of action and may be able to reduce your charges. Even for first-time offenders, an East Coast criminal defense attorney can challenge evidence and statements by the prosecution, oftentimes getting a case reduced in scope so that it has a far less dramatic effect on a person’s life than with no help at all. For these reasons, it is always best to contact an attorney right away.
