Mr. Taylor (retired) describes what an arrestee can, and should, do when selecting an attorney to represent them. DUI is a highly complex field and a specialist is necessary for effective representation. Martindale-Hubbell’s international directory and AVVO rating systems provide an arrestee with credible information about all licensed attorneys. Arrestees can also visit local courthouses and talk with court employees to get insight from people with firsthand knowledge of who the best attorneys are. Arrestees should be wary of any attorney that makes a promise as to the outcome of an arrestee’s case. It is impossible to make this prediction and these attorneys are simply unethical. Finally arrestees should be wary of “dump truck lawyers”. These are lawyers who charge an arrestee $1,000 to $2,000 and who put very minimal time and effort into an arrestee’s case. These lawyers will often plead the arrestee guilty at the first or second court appearances. You can always spot a dump truck lawyer by the fees they charge.
