Yes, would you play poker without knowing the rules? In the famous words of Abraham Lincoln, “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.” There are several areas that a lawyer can help a first time DUI arrest. First, if you are going to fight a DUI, the first DUI is the one you want to fight because if you lose there is minimal exposure for mandatory minimum punishments. Second, any DUI can be challenged for Illegal stops, improperly executed field sobriety evaluations, misread rights and other constitutional violations can get a case dismissed, or result in a not guilty verdict. Third, a lawyer can help to mitigate or minimize potential punishment if you decide to plead guilty to DUI. You should never go to court when jail time is a possibility without a lawyer.
