How do I hire a criminal defense attorney?

Your first step after being charged with a DUI or DWI is to hire a criminal defense attorney that specializes in DUI cases, like the attorneys at Patterson Law Firm. You will want to fully vet your attorney – be sure that their years of experience and practice area is conducive to helping you win your case. Look at reviews from clients in similar positions; for example, the clients of Patterson Law Firm have said that Clint Patterson “literally saved [my] life. I thought I was going to jail, but with [Clint’s] expertise, I received a surprising result.”


Ask the right questions when you decide to hire a criminal defense attorney. Strategize, prioritize, and customize your DUI case so that it fits your needs.

Take your time when hiring a lawyer, and don’t only look at attorneys offering free consultations – like most things in life, you get what you pay for, and defending your DUI case is not the time to skimp on fees, and don’t negotiate. You are staring down the barrel of a gun, and time is not on your side. Be honest with your lawyer about your case and your monetary situation – it saves your time and their time to get it all out in the open right away. At this point, you have nothing to lose.
