How to Choose a DUI Lawyer Los Angeles
I had a friend come to me one time and ask me how to choose a DUI Lawyer Los Angeles. Immediately, I think, why? Although, I'm smart enough to assume why. Of course, I told him I've never had a DUI and have never needed a defense attorney but we could figure this out together.
I Googled, "DUI lawyer Los Angeles" and came up with million defense attorneys in Los Angeles County. Drunk driving is an epidemic in Los Angeles as well as in Orange County. Police Departments in both of the counties are stretched thin trying to deal with all the legal matters that result from drunk driving. The court houses are filled with case after case after case. I think it might be as a result that the average Los Angeles County DUI attorney is too good at what they do. Drunk drivers are getting away with too much. The California DUI Drunk Driving laws need to be revisited. I can't honestly say that it's the the Defense Attorney that's at fault. They are doing what they get paid to do. Criminal defense is what they do. If the laws make it easy to get off, then the laws should be changed.
DUI Defense is a specialty in itself. Many law firms focus mainly on drunk driving defense. Is it the laws or is it the abundance of alcohol? There are so many questions to ask and so many roads one can travel in discussing this issue. Everyone wants to put blame on someone else, including me, but something has to be done.
Being an Attorney in Los Angeles or Orange County means handling drunk driving cases. It's a matter of supply and demand. There is an overabundant supply of drunk driver's. I had a close friend who upon recently graduating from law school went directly into defending drunk driving cases and this was in Los Angeles County. I asked him why he chose to become a DUI Lawyer. His reply was that drunk drivers made it possible for young attorneys out of law school to find immediate employment. Of all the people that require criminal defense, drunk drivers fill the need.
So, returning to my original discussion on finding a DUI Attorney Los Angeles, after reviewing the list from our internet search, we were overwhelmed with the immensity of Attorneys specializing in the criminal defense of drunk drivers. We began by sorting the attorneys out by County, Los Angeles and Orange County since my friend lived close to both counties. That still left us with a zillion law firms to decide upon. We narrowed the defense attorney list down to a half hour driving distance. That narrowed the list even more. Then I got the bright idea of calling the local police department to see if they had any suggestions. We came away with few results there.
The best way, we decided to locate a good DUI lawyer Los Angeles was to call a law firm and start interviewing. Most people, when calling a law firm for the first time think the lawyers are interviewing you but in reality you should be interviewing the law firm. It's your legal defense. You should be getting the best legal attorney that fits what you want accomplished.
To this day, I can't remember who my friend chose or what happened to his drunk driving case.
