DUI Experience, your advocate in court.

Not every lawyer who handles DUIs are equal in skill and experience. Surprisingly, the differences in pricing and services are not that dramatic, so you can literally get a half-assed lawyer for the same amount as an experienced DUI attorney.  For the person seeking legal representation in a standard DUI case, attorneys’ fees may be fairly competitive.
Judges are not lenient with DUI cases, even if it is your first offense.  As a result, it’s important to realize that hiring a lawyer is in your best interests despite the costs.  In general, you will already be paying hefty fines for the DUI charge and risk the suspension of your driver’s license, depending on which stage of the legal process you are in.  Some judges may waive part of the fines, but there is nothing that can be done to waive the conviction.  That is something that could stay with you for the rest of your life.
Louis Schneider has represented many DUI clients both in negotiating acceptable settlements and at trials when negotiations fail.  Call us for help with your Las Vegas DUI.

Remember, for misdemeanor crimes, you will not get a court appointed public defender.  If you want a criminal defense attorney to represent your interests, you will have to hire one in private practice.
