A DUI is a very serious matter! The fines could be between $300.00 to more than $5,000. There could be lengthy jail time, and your license could be suspended for more than a year. Even if you qualify for a program which can reduce your sentence, you don't know everything there is to know. Each program differs from county to county. Some counties require you to have an attorney. While you might be able to get through a program without an attorney, you might not be able to take advantage of every aspect of the program. A DUI can carry serious penalties. An attorney can guide you through the process and make things a lot easier for you. If there were a way to get your case thrown out, would you know what to look for? Would you know what to do?
