If you have been charged with drunk driving in North County, you probably know you need to hire a Vista DUI lawyer, but if you’ve never needed an attorney before, you may not know how to tell whether or not someone is qualified to take your case. The problem is compounded with DUI charges because you only have ten days to file for a license suspension hearing with the DMV or you will automatically lose your license. When you need to evaluate Vista DUI attorneys quickly and efficiently, these questions can help.
- Is the lawyer easy to get a hold of? If a DUI attorney in Vista is too busy to meet with you and answer your questions before you hire him or her, then the lawyer will probably be too busy to offer the personalized service you deserve. Also, make sure you actually talk to, and get advice from, a lawyer and not an employee of the law firm. Peter Liss is available every day at any time of the day with a 24-hour live-answering service.
- Does the attorney guarantee the outcome of your case? While knowledgeable and experienced DUI lawyers in Vista may be able to tell you that you have a strong case, no ethical attorney will ever promise that you will be acquitted or found not guilty.
- How does the attorney rank on AVVO? AVVO offers ratings and reviews for 95% of lawyers in America. Peter Liss has a perfect rating, 18 five-star reviews, 30 years of experience and graduated from a top ten law school, the U.C. Berkeley Law School.
- Can you afford his or her rates and is the attorney upfront about the costs associated with your case? Vista DUI lawyer Peter M. Liss offers reasonable rates and accepts all major credit cards.
Of course, aside from answering your questions to your satisfaction, it is also important that you feel comfortable around a Vista DUI lawyer. You need to be able to tell your attorney everything you can about the DUI arrest and feel comfortable asking any and all questions you have about your case. If you do not feel comfortable talking to a particular lawyer, you should not sign on as their client.
If you need a DUI attorney in Vista, please call Peter M. Liss at (760) 643-4050 to see how he can help you fight your drunk driving charges.
