Hiring An Attorney Could Save You Money And Headaches – Here’s 4 Reasons Why!

On Behalf of | May 10, 2017 | Firm News


Hiring a lawyer is seen as an expensive option to most people, expensive but necessary. If you’re arrested for a DUI, as 4,000 people are every day, then chances are you’re going to need a good lawyer to pull through with a lesser sentence. Especially if you injured someone while driving drunk, an accident which occurs every 2 minutes.

But why should you get a DUI lawyer? Why should you hire a lawyer at all? Lawyers are expensive, especially ones from prestigious law firms. Well, here are a few reasons why you should.

  1. It Might Cost You More Without
    That’s right, not having a lawyer might actually cost you more than if you had one. Criminal cases decide whether or not you are convicted, and thus could spend time behind bars, and a civil case could hurt you financially. There’s also the fact that many civil attorneys don’t do not get paid unless they win your case. So having a lawyer could actually save, or even earn, you money if the case is right.
  2. A Good Attorney Can Challenge Evidence
    What does the average individual know about court law? Likely nothing. You wouldn’t know that the key piece of evidence against you not properly obtained, or a witness statement went against a previous one. Your attorney will know, or they will find out. They also have a network of professionals to call on to aid you, their client, in your case. Most likely you don’t know any detectives or other such individuals, and that’s where the attorney comes in.
  3. A Settlement or a Bargain Plea
    Experienced Attorneys have probably has seen dozens of cases similar to yours, or at least knows enough to guess how it will go at trial. They may decide that a settlement is the best choice, or that the trial would be the best route to take. They can also help negotiate a fair settlement or bargain for you.
  4. Catch Problems Early
    Do you really understand the contract you’re signing? It may cause you headaches down the road if you don’t. A lawyer would be able to tell you if it was a good idea to sign on the dotted line, or whether you should decline and ask for better terms. That could save you time, money, and worry later on.

So if you feel that you may need an attorney, schedule a consultation with one as soon as possible and explain your case. You have more to gain than to lose.
