Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Sandy Springs DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer--especially if they plea you to a DUI you don't deserve at the first opportunity--can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that's $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 10 hours on every DUI case. 2) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner's and area supervisor's manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can't answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.
