If you have been charged with a DUI, DWAI, or any other criminal charge, often the first question you ask yourself is whether or not you should hire a DUI attorney. The short answer is yes, you should always speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Even when I was a Deputy District Attorney I would advise people to speak with an attorney before making any decisions regarding their case. Having an attorney is a right given to us by the United States Constitution and is a right that everyone should exercise. Being charged and convicted of a DUI or other crime can impact all aspects of your life. It can affect your job, your ability to drive, ability to leave the state, and ultimately your freedom.

DUI law has many nuances and technical aspects that an experienced Colorado DUI lawyer can work through with you to help you make an informed decision for your particular situation.

A mistake or oversight by the police on any one of those aspects can have a big impact on how a case proceeds. You do not want to leave your livelihood and your liberty to chance.

The answer to that question often depends on your particular driving history and whether or not you have any previous DUI charges. In Denver, the penalties increase for each subsequent DUI. For instance, a fourth DUI will likely be charged as a felony. These escalating penalties will have an impact on how much a DUI attorney will charge. Of course, each case is different and you may or may not have factors involved in your case that would allow it to be dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge.
