An old legal maxim says, “An attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.” People sometimes ask me if they can just defend themselves from a DWI charge, rather than spending the money to hire an attorney, and my answer is an unequivocal, “No!” An attorney is familiar with the rules of evidence, the court in which your case will be heard, the district attorney’s office and their policies with regard to your particular case. You may not be aware of the many available defenses, but an attorney who regularly practices DWI defense will be. He or she can help you achieve the best possible outcome.
