Can Any Type of Defense Attorney Represent Me?

You might be wondering how much difference it makes in which attorney represents you. You might even wonder if any type of general defense attorney can represent you in court. The straightforward answer to this is NO. The attorney you choose to represent you in court will make the difference in your Virginia DUI case.

Even if there is someone who you like and trust, they may not be qualified and competent to represent you in the field of Virginia DUI law. You will want a Virginia DUI defense attorney who is honest, knowledgeable, and experienced in this area, and who fits your specific legal needs.

How Do I Choose The Right Attorney For Me?

The only way to choose a qualified Virginia DUI defense attorney is to ask a lot of questions. You should inquire about their past experience with Virginia DUI trials, as well as what challenges they foresee for your case. And when speaking with an attorney, be sure to ask exactly who in their firm will represent you.

The last thing you need is a very recent law school graduate to take you on as their very first case.
While we hate to disparage new attorneys, there is something to be said for the experience and knowledge that can only come from years of experience trying cases in a Virginia court of law.

This decision of who will be your lawyer will be one of the most important decisions you make in your life. Bob Battle relishes and thrives in his role of "going to battle" for the legal underdog.
