Lawyer Selection Questions
However, you may be wondering what questions you should be asking to DUI attorneys to make sure they are the right fit for you. Here are some suggestions:
- How long have you specialised in DUI cases?
- How many do you handle per year?
- How often do your cases go to trial?
- Do you know the prosecutor in this case?
- How many ‘successful’ cases have you had?
These questions are all designed to see whether the lawyer you are meeting with is experienced enough in this field. At Mass Tsang, all of our DUI lawyers are very highly trained and have years of experience, but it is worth asking these questions anyway for your own peace of mind.
Case Handling Questions
You may also want to ask questions such as:
- As well as the standard fee, are there any other fees that I will be required to pay?
- What forms of payment do you accept?
- Do you offer affordable payment plans?
- Is a plea bargain likely?
- Which factors of the case work for and against me?
- Should we go to trial?
These are the kinds of questions which will offer you a more practical insight into how the case will manifest. By finding out the costs you can start to plan ahead, and asking your lawyers about the likely outcomes of the case means that you can set realistic expectations for yourself.
