Should I get a Lawyer for a DUI?

Should you get a lawyer for a DUI? Can you represent yourself?  You certainly have a right to represent yourself.  The Constitution guarantees that right.  But remember the old legal saying that goes, “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”


DUIs involve scientific evidence and many technical and specialized defenses.  That includes the DUI defenses related to alcohol or drug testing, as well as the legal defenses (and constitutional defenses) unique to DUI.

There is a lot of California law specialized to DUI cases, in court, and at the DMV. An Orange County DUI charge requires an expert Orange County DUI lawyer.  And, considering the costs of a DUI, and considering that the effects of a DUI can last for years, there is a lot at risk if your DUI case is not handled properly.

If you are going to seriously defend a DUI charge, you are going to need an experienced DUI attorney.

The best way to find a qualified Orange County DUI attorney is to ask questions and do your research.  Ask the attorney questions, and research their qualifications.
