What If I Can't Afford To Hire A Lawyer
It is no secret that our economy is in the crapper! Many people have already been laid off or have legitimate concerns about losing their job when they suddenly find themselves charged with OVI/DUI. With no job, or the possibility of losing their source of income, should they dip into savings or borrow the money to hire a lawyer? Absolutely!
If you are presently unemployed and are looking for a job, how are you going to get to job interviews if you don't have driving privileges? What will a prospective employer think about an OVI/DUI conviction? If there are 2 potential candidates for 1 job opening and both candidates have the same qualifications, except one has an OVI conviction, who do you think will get the job?
Hiring an attorney doesn't guarantee that you won't be convicted, and depending on the court, it doesn't even guarantee you will get driving privileges. However, it does help move the odds in your favor as to both issues, especially if you have hired an attorney who is capable and willing to fight your OVI!
