Is a super cheap lawyer better than a public defender for a dui case?
3 attorney answers
At a .04 blood alcohol level I don't believe you can be found guilty of a DUI unless you are a minor under the age of 21.
As to a super cheap (not certain what that means) attorney over a P.D., I can't say. Maybe? Is the private attorney very young, experienced or just hungry. Generally, and the field of law is no exception, you get what you pay for but that said ata .04, assuming it gets filed I don't think the attorney has a lot to do in order to successfully defend you.
My assumption is if the case gets filed either should be able to get it dismissed, but there has to be more facts at issue here to have caused a .04 to trigger an arrest and citation.
The answer given above does not constitute specific legal advice and by reading the above response there is no attorney client relationship formed between the author and the reader. My comments are based on extremely limited information and are intended solely for informational purposes. Do not rely upon my response as specific legal advice. Every person's legal situation is fact specific and unique, and all legal problems are best handled by hiring an attorney, both competent and diligent in that field of practice. Only hire an attorney you feel comfortable with who is knowledgeable and has specific experience with your type of case. Ask questions and insist on answers. Beware of any attorney who promises you a specific result. Good Luck.

No. Asker, i'd wait to see if this is actually filed first...
I am licensed attorney in Washington and California who focuses Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Not necessarily. If an attorney is charging very little, he/she is likely forced to take on too many cases and you may be faced with the reality that you are t given the time you need.
However, the Public Defenders are often over worked and you may face the same issue with them.

This is NOT legal advice and it does not create an attorney-client relationship.
