Why Call A Lawyer If You Believe You're Guilty?

A DWI conviction carries long-term consequences. Beyond jail time and fines, it can affect your driving privileges, increase your insurance rates, tarnish your reputation and more. However, many people still wonder why they should bother calling a lawyer after they are arrested. They often think, "I know I'm guilty, so what good can an attorney do?"

If you are innocent, having skilled representation is absolutely critical. However, even if you are guilty, a lawyer can make a very important difference in the outcome of your case. As your defense lawyer, I will determinedly seek reductions or avoidance of the serious penalties you may face. An experienced attorney can often save you more money than you will pay in attorney fees.

For instance, judges order some first-time offenders to enroll in treatment programs that cost $3,000 to $4,000. Is this an appropriate punishment for a one-time mistake? Maybe not. Each client and case is unique. I will work diligently to protect you. I have access to a state-certified alcohol assessor who may determine you do not need treatment.
