“Hiring a DUI attorney with experience affords you multiple benefits such as a behind-the-scenes knowledge of the court system, expert counseling on what to/to not say, knowledge of plea bargain details, and the ability to navigate difficult situations. If you decide to represent yourself, you may be confused by the complex legal information and could actually harm rather than help yourself. Similarly, if you choose a public defender, you are in the hands of someone who may have no real interest in how you fare.”
At our DUI and Criminal Defense Law Office, we have never seen or heard of anyone prevailing against a Mississippi DUI charge by representing him/herself. As Yore states, the justice system - consisting, in general, of the law enforcement agency, the prosecutor's office, the court clerk's office, and the judge who will preside over the case - is very complex and a skilled, qualified, and experienced DUI defense attorney provides a person charged with a DUI the best opportunity for successful results in the case.
