Right now you can schedule some free office consultations with DUI attorneys and talk to them. Depending on which county you are charged in, you can call the DA office and request your "Discovery". If they give it out before your first court date then you can get it and take it with you when you meed with some attorneys. Did you address your DMV obligations? Write down everything you remember from that evening and pay attention to what the officer told you or said to you regarding submitting to the roadsides and also your rights/obligations to take a chemical test. Discussing your case with a few lawyers will give you an idea of who you want to hire if you hire a lawyer and also time to raise money to hire the lawyer. Always ask if they will take a payment plan if you do not have all of the money "up front". Write down some questions such as what percentage of that lawyer's practice is comprised of DUI defense, how long he/she has been defending DUI cases, etc. Then write down everyone's answers so you have them to compare. Also, when you call lawyer's offices, have a pen and paper ready to write down their name/phone and notes they give you. It will be a lot of information and very easy to forget what he/she said and who said what. Do not wait to hire a lawyer. The sooner you get one on board, the sooner they can start working for you. Good luck!
