When You Need an Idaho DUI Attorney
It is a good idea to contact an Idaho DUI Attorney as soon as is
possibly. There are serious legal, administrative and financial
consequences for even a first time offender, so let an experienced DUI
Attorney navigate the legal waters on your behalf.
Because you have only 7-days to request an Administrative Hearing with
the Idaho DMV, a DUI Attorney has to quickly prepare documents for the
possible reinstatement of your license.
Also, an experienced DUI Attorney may be able to immediately
recognize errors in the methods used by the arresting officer and may
pursue the avenue of ‘dismissal.’ For this reason, it is best to
speak to a DUI Attorney while the events of the arrest are fresh in
The Services Provided By and the Benefits of Having an Idaho DUI
The legal and administrative consequences of an Idaho DUI are
harsh. An Idaho DUI Attorney understands the factors that affect
the outcome of your specific case and will work on your behalf to
ensure that the outcome is reasonable and fair.
An Idaho DUI Attorney will work on your behalf to handle both the legal
and administrative hearings:
- Submit forms and documentation for reinstatement of your driver’s
license if it was revoked on the scene
- Prepare a defense and represent you at your Idaho DMV
- Analyze the evidence brought forth in your case and attempt to
- Evaluate the equipment used in your arrest
- Use the evidence to have the case dismissed, if the evidence is
faulty or inaccurate, or to have your charges reduced
The benefits are obvious ones. Without an experienced DUI
Attorney, harsher penalties may be doled out to you in court. An
Idaho DUI Attorney works on your behalf to ensure that the final
judgment is reasonable, fair and warranted.
Costs of an Idaho DUI Attorney
The fee you will pay for an Idaho DUI Attorney will vary from
Attorney to Attorney and can range from $2500 to $15,000,
approximately, depending on the severity of your case.
Also, consider into the equation that you will be responsible for the
payment of all expert witnesses and that you will also incur court
costs and fines.
Your bill will quickly add up to thousands of dollars!
While you may be tempted to hire a less expensive Attorney, it is
important to remember that ‘you get what you pay for!’ Considering the
seriousness of your conviction, it is not prudent to hire a mediocre
Attorney who has little experience and/or success with DUI cases. You
may find a DUI Attorney who is willing to handle your case on a
contingency basis, but this is rare.
Risks of Not Hiring an Idaho DUI Attorney
Over the past few years, DUI convictions have been handled with
increasing severity. Idaho and many other States are recognizing
the increasing frequency of DUI arrests and are ‘cracking down’ on
drivers who drive while impaired. Without an experienced DUI
Attorney, you are throwing yourself to the wolves!
Perhaps the officer was mistaken and you were not, in fact, driving
impaired. Are you capable of proving this in court?
Probably not. Let an experienced DUI Attorney tackle this issue
for you or you may find yourself suffering unreasonable and unfair
A DUI Attorney will know how to walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk at both
the legal and administrative hearings, and this savvy know-how may
procure you a plea to a lesser charge and reduced penalties.
Again, it is not likely that you can do this on your own and, without a
DUI Attorney, you may find the harshest penalties imposed.
