The Difference between a Tulsa DUI Lawyer and Tulsa DUI attorney with experience
When you face a DUI charge in the Tulsa metro area, you should know that not all of your options for legal representation are the same and that choosing the right attorney has a significant impact in the outcome of your case. One of the important things to understand is the difference between a Tulsa DUI lawyer and one who has practical experience in fighting for DUI defendants. Any lawyer with general legal credentials can assist a client with a DUI or other traffic related offense. Lawyers with a general criminal defense practice often include DUI in their list of services. The truth is that most of these firms are not DUI experienced attorneys.
To determine if the attorney you are considering for representation is an experienced DUI attorney, ask if he or she has experience with the actual methods of DUI enforcement. For example, the DUI experienced attorney will be certified in field sobriety testing and understand law enforcement’s use of items like the horizontal gaze test. This experienced attorney will also have advanced knowledge about the machines and equipment used to give breath tests and other alcohol testing. A DUI experienced lawyer will understand mitigating details related to the complexity of the human body, for instance, how stomach issues or details on blood work can affect a blood alcohol reading. He or she knows what “throws off” a breathalyzer result and in defending clients in the legal arena knows what questions to ask when contesting or appealing a case. Overall, a good DUI lawyer is entirely familiar with how DUIs are enforced, reported on by police and prosecuted within your state. He or she parlays this knowledge into a venerable legal defense of a DUI charge.
