The Benefits of Hiring a DWI Lawyer

Being charged with DWI in Austin, TX is a serious offense, and should never be taken lightly.  Your freedom and finances are at stake and you need professional representation to make sure your case is handled properly.  

Here are the reasons why you need to hire an attorney if you have been charged with DWI.


Familiarity With Laws


One of the most important reasons to get legal representation for your DWI case is to benefit from attorneys’ familiarity with the laws here in Austin and Central Texas.


With the help of a DWI law firm such as Botsford and Roark, you may avoid conviction based on small  technical details that only experienced lawyers will know about. Having an experienced attorney on your side may also provide an opportunity to reduce your penalty.


Experience With DWI Cases


DWI attorneys also have extensive experience handling these cases. That experience translates into the knowledge of which arguments and defenses produce results. Thus, they can craft the best strategy for you.


They also have more realistic expectations as to your potential consequences. This means that they can tell if the proposed punishment is too severe. In that case, their experience would provide them with solid arguments to reduce the penalty.


Saves Yourself Time


To start, you will save time by not having to research all of the details of DWI laws. On top of that, with a lawyer, you won’t need to visit court as often or be there for as long. Having legal representation will also save you time in terms of paperwork, witnesses, and other evidence. The attorney will handle all or most of this instead of you needing to spend your precious time on it.
