It's not Hopeless
Don't Let one night of drinking leave you with a hangover for life
If you are looking for a lawyer to defend you on a driving while intoxicated charge you have probably discovered that thousands of lawyers claim to be experts in this area. Some of those lawyers are competent and qualified to handle DWI cases, but unfortunately many are not. DWI is a lot like personal injury in that there are a lot of lawyers advertising for these cases. There are probably many reasons for that, the biggest one probably being the number of DWI arrests. There are simply a lot of people who get arrested for driving while intoxicated, and most of those people have never been in any type of trouble before.
There's also a bigger reason - which no one wants to admit. Many lawyers believe DWI cases are easy money. A lot of people arrested for driving while intoxicated have steady jobs, and can afford to pay a lawyer. For those lawyers DWI cases are easy; they look at the offense reports, review the video and work out a plea. As you will see, there's a lot to more defending a DWI a case. If you do it right, these cases are far from easy; in fact, they are one of the more complex and complicated offenses to defend.

Far too many lawyers believe DWI or DUI cases are relatively simple cases, and easy to resolve. In other words – easy money. The truth is that DWI cases can be extremely complex. There may be constitutional issues regarding the traffic stop itself or the way in which evidence was obtained. There are also issues regarding the accuracy and validity of the various tests used to establish intoxication. Officers are trained to conduct tests in the field and the lawyer must be familiar with how those tests are supposed to be administered as well as the scientific basis (or not) underlying the tests. Many DWI cases also involve breath tests or blood tests and the lawyer must know about those and know their limitations. Without such an understanding the lawyer cannot effectively challenge the State's case. No lawyer can guarantee success. However, there's one thing for certain - You can't raise a defense you don't know about.
