How to Hire a Lawyer for a Duluth DUI
A Duluth DUI is Serious and Can Result in Fines and Jail Time

You can spend up to 12 months in jail for a first DUI, do 40 hours of community service, be subject to drug and alcohol testing for one year and serve 12 months of reporting probation. Your license may be suspended anywhere from 120 days to 5 years. Do not try to handle your DUI without an experienced Duluth DUI Attorney.
Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Duluth 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.
