How Do You Choose a Portland DUI Attorney


Choosing the Right Maine OUI Lawyer for You

If you have been arrested for OUI in Maine, it is important that you contact an attorney right away.

For many people, a drunk driving arrest is their first time in trouble with the law. When it comes to hiring an attorney they may have no idea where to even start. First and foremost it is important to speak to an OUI lawyer as soon as you are arrested. You need to understand your rights and the consequences you could be facing. An experienced attorney will listen to you and explain what the best course of action will be. But before you can get advice from a lawyer, you need to decide which one is right for you.

OUI stands for Operating a vehicle Under the Influence. OUIs can also be referred to as DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).

There are many deciding factors when choosing an attorney. At our firm, we know that you have a lot of options and want to make the best decision. That is why we recommend doing a little research before you hire an attorney in order to make sure you get the best legal care for your money. You can start by asking friends and family for recommendations or doing an internet search. Next you should read about the credentials of all potential DUI lawyers. It is important to look at experience and qualifications of each law firm. After that, check out a legal review site like where former clients rate attorneys. If you like what you see, call and set up a consultation. Reputable DUI lawyers generally offer free consultations to potential clients. This gives you a chance to meet the lawyers and find out more about what they can do for you.
