The Top 4 Reasons to Hire a DUI Lawyer, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

The team at Thompson Law Office in Lexington, KY, understands even good people can make bad decisions, but they believe everyone deserves a second chance. If you’re facing DUI charges in Kentucky, a criminal attorney from their ranks will help you craft a solid defense that may result in reduced charges or lesser sentencing.

Here are four reasons to hire a DUI lawyer to help you build your case:

  • Experience: Every DUI case is different, and although you may be able to find tons of resources online that discuss valid criminal defenses, none of them will pertain specifically to your case. A DUI attorney, on the other hand, has experience with cases similar to yours and will rely on that background to help you build a defense based on your particular situation.
  • Knowledge: DUI lawyers understand the judicial system inside and out when it comes to disproving evidence. For example, they know how unreliable field sobriety tests are and how inaccurate breathalyzers can be if they are not calibrated properly; your attorney may use this insight to craft your defense.
  • duiAccess: If you need an expert witness to testify on your behalf, a DUI attorney may know someone who can fill that role. Criminal defense lawyers have access to expert witnesses in a variety of subjects and will call on them as needed.
  • Skill: If the police have substantial evidence against you, you may feel hopeless regarding the outcome of your case; however, even if a conviction is likely, an experienced DUI attorney may be able to negotiate for reduced jail time on your behalf.

If you or someone you love is facing DUI charges, there is a lot at stake. A DUI attorney from Thompson Law Office in Lexington, KY, will assess your case and help you determine the best way to proceed.
