Why should I hire a DUI attorney?

Posted by Matthew Marin | Feb 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

DUI lawyers are experts when it comes to alcohol- and drug-related cases. This expertise can help to get your charges or sentencing reduced, and even have your case dismissed. 

If you've been charged it may seem like the facts are straightforward and you think it may be a waste of money to hire someone to come to your defense.  Our years of experience have proven that each DUI case is unique and the presentation as well as defense of the facts can drastically change the outcome of a case.

There are dozens of rules and consequences associated with your charges. As a DUI lawyer, I have spent years focused on familiarizing myself with local court customs and procedures. I know what defenses carry weight, and which do not, and can present your case in the most effective and persuasive way possible.

If you or a loved one has been arrested contact Matthew T. Marin today for a free consultation with a trusted and experienced Rhode Island DUI Attorney.

If you decided not to hire a DUI attorney, you increase the risk of dealing with the following consequences:

  • Suspended License
  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Ordered to attend DUI School
  • Higher auto insurance rates
