Why you should Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Miami

Sometimes the prospect of representing yourself may come to mind and you may decide not to have a criminal defense lawyer in Miami to represent you. While to some this may seem like a viable option especially because they believe they are innocent, it is a choice that should be made wisely for a number of reasons.

The first thing you need to remember is that driving under the influence is a serious criminal offence. The choice to represent yourself should be taken very seriously, otherwise you risk ending up in jail. In the state of Florida you could be facing 6-9 months in jail as a first time offender.

Choosing a good DUI lawyer in Miami, is also a better option because they have all the necessary experience to know how they can pull you out of a tricky legal situation. Their experience can help them exploit loopholes and technicalities, in a way that you would not have been able to do by yourself.

You also need to note that simply choosing a criminal defense Lawyer in Miami may not necessarily help your case. You need one who has handled similar cases in the past. A bad attorney will only disappoint and probably even get you into a worse situation than the one you are in. In fact, it may have been better to plead guilty than pick a poor attorney.

Make a point of checking the background of the criminal defense lawyer in Miami. Check whether they have faced any disciplinary actions in the past and do a general background check on them.
