Sometimes I’m asked, “How do I know which attorney to choose?” But if you want to go to my website, edgelawfirm.com, you will find questions to ask before hiring a DUI attorney. You can print this off, you can use it in any way that you choose. I think you’ll find that there’s some good issues there.
Issues such as, are you board certified in DUI defense? Are you a member of the National College for DUI Defense? Are you a sustaining member of the NCDD? Are you certified in the field sobriety tests? Are you an instructor of the field sobriety tests? Are you DRE certified? Have you had specialized training in blood? Do you own an Intoxilyzer 8000? Do you teach other attorneys, lawyers and judges? Do you get referrals from judges, prosecutors, and police officers from their friends and family when they need help?
Those are the kind of questions that you can ask because that tells you whether the attorney is doing his job. I can answer yes to every one of those questions.
