DUI DWI Bowling Green Lawyer - Drunk Driving Attorney - Laws and Penalties Kentucky
Selecting a lawyer for the first time may be a challenging feat. Most people only think to hire a lawyer when they are in a time of crisis. It is important for you to be familiar with the lawyer available to you in your area. .
Bowling Green, Kentucky is not unlike many other states and cities in the country. There is a booming problem with alcoholism, and well as drug use. Both of these issues, combined with a motor vehicle, can lead to a deadly combination, or a DUI/ DWI. No matter which one you are charged with, both are very serious charges that carry penalties that could follow you for years to come.
Hiring a lawyer soon after your arrest is better than not hiring a lawyer and deciding to represent yourself. If you choose to represent yourself, you are pretty much taking the recommendations of the state prosecutor once in court, and by that time have missed out on crucial time to submit temporary driving license paperwork.
There are more positives than negatives in hiring a criminal lawyer on your behalf. But one that specializes in DUIs and other traffic violations is what you are in need of if you have been charged with a DUI in Lexington.
