Do you need a DUI lawyer? Getting charged with driving under the influence can be humiliating, devastating, and shocking, not only to you but to the people you know and love. It can also wreak havoc on your life and your future. Unless you have help from a legal team that can guide you through the process, one bad decision could define you and limit your opportunities. Here are two reasons you need a good DUI lawyer in your corner.

#1: Sort Through the Complexities

All legal cases have their own set of complex issues, but DUI cases can be very technical. By nature, they include particular requirements by both law enforcement and the courts. The team at Cavanaugh & Thickens has experience sorting through the complexities of DUI cases and can help you get to the other side.

#2: Evaluate the Issues

Without a lawyer, you could be dealing with legal issues related to your case that include reasonable suspicion, police filming, words exchanged during the traffic stop, the administration of the field sobriety test, and how and when police gave a breathalyzer test during the stop. Instead of trying to manage all of this information yourself, you need a DUI lawyer to help defend you and present the appropriate arguments in court.

Driving under the influence is a serious charge. It can lead to long-term consequences and a black mark on your record. Instead of facing the charges alone, without the knowledge or experience to effectively defend yourself, turn to the legal team at Cavanaugh & Thickens. Our results-driven DUI lawyers can review your case and help you through the overwhelming process.
