Avoid These Costly Mistakes in DUI Arrests

IL defense lawyerThe shock of a DUI charge is sobering. Many of those standing accused become riddled with questions, such as, “How will this affect my future?” and “What should I do next?” DUI charges are severe accusations in Illinois, potentially resulting in criminal punishments. Not only do you face losing your right to drive, but you also may receive a criminal record. You may have already made one mistake too many at this point. Avoid making further errors by following these best practices.

Do Not Speak to Police without an Attorney

The police tell you when reading you your rights that you have the right to an attorney and anything you say can, and will, be used against you. Although they may say it out of habit, you should heed their warnings. Police receive specialized interrogation training, enabling them to elicit as much information out of a suspect as possible before they realize they have said too much. Do not wait until you have said more than you should. Retain an experienced attorney immediately before you say anything. Prevention is preferable to overcoming incriminating evidence.

Avoid Discussing Your Case with Friends, Family, and Co-Workers

Whether you vent to your cellmate or your family, there is always a risk that the information could potentially harm your case. The best rule of thumb is to avoid discussing your case with anyone other than your defense lawyer. At the very least, it prevents your loved ones from being placed in an awkward situation on whether to keep a secret or to protect their interests. By you avoiding telling them anything, they are not lying when they say to the police they do not know anything.

Hire an Experienced Attorney

When it comes to a criminal case, not just any lawyer will suffice. You do not want to be the person that, when it is all said and done, wishes they did more research on their attorney before beginning. When you are researching your lawyers for your DUI case, the top factors to consider include:

  • Experience with DUI cases. The law is too detailed to hire a tax attorney for a criminal case;
  • Record of cases like yours. How willing is your attorney to do whatever it takes to get the best possible solution?;
  • Recommendations from other clients. Online is a great place to start searching for past experiences; and
  • Personality. You will need to have consistent interaction with your chosen attorney. Having a good connection is essential.
