Being arrested for DUI is a traumatic experience. No matter the circumstances of your arrest, you were probably shocked to end up in custody. In that moment, the world feels like it is crashing down around you, and the future probably feels hopeless. Fortunately, by partnering with a Charleston DUI lawyer, you should be able to see the bigger picture looking forward. Sure, you are facing serious charges, and you need to give those charges the respect they deserve, but your arrest was only the beginning of the process.

Going Through the Process

All DUI cases work through a legal process, with the outcome of the case depending on the evidence at hand, the defense presented, and more. By working with a Charleston DUI lawyer on your case, you will have the opportunity to organize your defense and present all of the relevant information to the court. Regardless of the outcome, you want to at least make sure that your side of the case is heard, and that’s what an experienced Charleston DUI lawyer is going to prioritize. You have the right to present your argument, and it will be easier to do just that when you aren’t in it alone.

A Much-Needed Ally

The sad reality is that some people will draw their own conclusions after a DUI arrest, long before any verdict has been reached in the case. If you find yourself without many allies in the aftermath of your arrest, having a lawyer who will listen to your story and fight for you is a welcome change. There are two sides to every story, and the arrest is only one side of the events that have taken place. Only after both sides of the story come to light can a fair and just decision be made.
