If you are facing a driving while intoxicated charge (DWI) you need an attorney with experience to represent you. In this sensitive situation, though, it could be overwhelming to think of what questions to ask a potential attorney.
The experienced DWI attorneys at The Law Offices of Jed Silverman share imperative questions you should ask when choosing a Texas DWI attorney.
Do You Specialize in DWI Cases?
Answer: Going to an attorney who has never handled a DWI case before is not in your best interest. On the other hand, not many attorneys only specialize in DWI cases. You need an attorney who is well versed in DWI cases and is familiar with the jurisdiction where your case is being held.
Did you know?: In some DWI cases, the manner in which law enforcement determined your suspected DWI can be challenged? Jed Silverman is not only a certified breath test operator but also a field sobriety test conductor. This means he has the experience and ability to know if a breath test or field sobriety test was not conducted correctly.
Have You Handled a DWI Case Like Mine Before?
Answer: Not every DWI case is the same. While your attorney may not have handled a case exactly like yours before, they should have enough experience to feel confident in handling your case based upon previous clients.
Do You Have Concerns About My Case?
Answer: Most attorneys should share their concerns but also what they’re confident about in your case. If an attorney says they do not have any concerns, they may not have true intentions with your case. Compassionate and caring attorneys will always share what concerns they have but showcase how they feel they will give you the best result possible.
Why Are You the Best Attorney to Handle My Case?
Answer: Reputable DWI attorneys will have referrals and testimonials from cases similar to yours. Additionally, an attorney can highlight notable victories that should make you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to choose the right attorney.
