Why Do I Need A Los Angeles DUI Attorney?

Posted by Troy Slaten | Aug 07, 2013 | 0 Comments

There are a lot of circumstances when Do It Yourself (DIY) is useful. If you can fix a leaking pipe or build a deck on your own instead of hiring a professional, you save money and get a sense of accomplishment. When it comes to securing your future, however, you want to make sure you get it right the first time. If you have been arrested in Los Angeles for a DUI related crime, call a DUI defense attorney right now.

If you are accused of a crime, you might not think that the expense of hiring an attorney is worth it. You think you can get assistance from a public defender and plead ‘guilty' and get the whole thing over with. This is a bad idea. When you hire a  DUI attorney from Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we will look at your case and build a strong defense regardless of the charges. We will do all of the work and we will fight the charges so you can avoid the penalties of a conviction. In many cases, we can get charges dismissed or reduced or get a plea deal. In these situations, you will not have to go to court and will face much gentler consequences than if you plead ‘guilty'.

A  DUI lawyer will also work to help you keep your license. After a DUI arrest in California, you only have 10 days to request a DMV Hearing in order to challenge administrative license suspension. Your attorney will handle this for you and make the process easy. If you do receive penalties, only an experienced  defense lawyer can help you get your license returned to you sooner, help you find a convenient site to perform your community service and more. When you are charged with a crime in Los Angeles, make sure you have the best legal representation around.  Call out firm to find out more.
