There are the 12 questions you must ask of every lawyer you speak with about your DUI case. Here is the third question:
3. What Percentage of Your Caseload Is Devoted to DUI?
I am constantly amazed to find myself speaking to licensed, practicing lawyers who tell me over lunch or while waiting at a courthouse that they don’t think anyone can really win a DUI case. When I tell them that I and other GREAT DUI LAWYERS do win DUI cases, they are skeptical.
While it’s true that the laws are stacked against a DUI defendant more than in practically any other area of law, any good lawyer should know that no case is unwinnable. The same lawyers who privately think that DUI cases are unwinnable often “dabble” in DUI Defense. Would you want to hire them for your DUI case?
Most Virginia lawyers who handle DUI cases only do so occasionally. Their practice may include diverse topics such as criminal law, personal injury, family law or many others, and only a small fraction of their time and attention is paid to DUI cases.
This almost always means that only a small fraction of their training and ongoing learning is dedicated to DUI. A wise DUI client will seek out a lawyer whose practice includes a very significant percentage of DUI cases. It is recommended to go with a DUI lawyer who does at least 50% DUI and other serious traffic matters.
Roughly 80% of DUI Lawyer Scott Nolan’s caseload is DUI and other serious traffic matters.
