Being charged with a DUI could have serious consequences, including the driver losing his or her license, facing jail time, and paying a large sum in fees. However, with the right Pittsburgh, PA DUI attorney, a client may walk away with an unscathed record. Depending on various factors that include traffic-stop circumstances and sobriety test factors, the right lawyer may be able to have the charges and case completely dismissed.

To find the best lawyer for a case, clients are encouraged to look closer at a few specific variables. Attorney costs are one of the major factors in choosing the lawyer that takes on the job. Wyland Law Group encourages people to ask the following questions:

  • Is there an hourly or flat rate?
  • If there is a flat rate, what does it include?
  • If there is an hourly rate, how many hours are expected to be used for the case?
  • Are there any additional fees, including fees for trial appearances?
  • Are fees refundable?
  • What kind of out-of-pocket fees can be expected?
  • What are the acceptable forms of payment?
  • Can fees be broken into payments?

Experienced attorneys are important to the case as well since attorneys with more experience know how to better navigate the courtroom and all of the processes of the case. Hiring a lawyer who has less experience may end up incurring more costs. When selecting the right person for the job, it is essential to make sure that the client is comfortable around the attorney and the attorney will pay close enough attention to the case and its details. Does the attorney respond promptly? Does the attorney truly listen and honestly answer concerns and questions? Does the attorney use articulate language and express himself or herself in a way that is easily understood?

Choosing an attorney is a vital decision in the final outcome of the case. If the client is unsettled or unsure about an attorney, the wisest move is to trust that instinct and move on to another person that is genuine. Wyland Law Firm advocates for clear pathways of communication and guarantees to stand beside the client from beginning to end. The team is knowledgeable and aware of how to meticulously work within the system and achieve positive results.
