Driving under the influence arrests are significantly on the increase during the past year. In this troubled economy city and State budgets are being balanced on the backs of both the young and old who drink and drive. For that reason it is important that the first thing to do after an arrest is to immediately contact a Los Angeles DUI defense attorney who handles driving under the influence cases in Southern California.
The risks to career, paycheck, bank account and harm to the future by having a criminal records are immense. Often times DUI arrestees believe that a well trained Los Angeles DUI defense attorney costs money. But the truth is, failing to hire an attorney could result in more sever costs in the long run. For example, if your DUI defense attorney is able to lower the charges and plead your case down to a “wet reckless”, the fines are significantly lower then a full DUI. The alcohol awareness course is shorter in duration, thus saving you more money, and in many cases your insurance premium may not go sky high. Thereby, your Los Angeles DUI defense attorney may have paid for himself by the reduced fines and costs.
