Only The Attorneys At DWI Springfield Have The Experience And Knowledge To Represent You The Way You Deserve
The difference between a run-of-the-mill criminal defense attorney and a criminal defense attorney who specializes exclusively in DWI defense is truly life altering. This fact comes to light when the outcomes of two similar DWI cases end with drastically different results. The cause of the differing outcomes is mostly (if not entirely) due to the type of defence chosen to represent the DWI case.
A survey conducted by lawyers.com compared the outcomes of DWI cases represented by the defendants (themselves), public defenders, private lawyers and DWI attorneys. The survey concluded that, “the kind of lawyer you’re represented by – affects [DWI] costs and outcomes.”
The survey showed no significant difference in outcome and an almost equally high DWI conviction rate between self representation and being represented by a public defender. In cases where private lawyers and DWI attorneys represented clients, [DWI] conviction rates were remarkably lower.
In terms of economics, the survey revealed that the cost of defending oneself against DWI charges is only fractionally higher than if they’d contracted a public defender. Additionally, the extra cost of hiring a DWI attorney was offset by lower court costs and fees in cases that led to conviction (plea bargains included). This means that by the end of a typical DWI case (start to finish), those who hired a DWI attorney had better outcomes for only a marginally higher cost than those who’d hired a public defender.
Furthermore, those who “saved” money with a public defender often ended-up with less than desirable plea deals. The money “saved” by hiring a public defender vs. a DWI attorney is almost always lost to higher fines, fees, and court costs. These figures are reflected time and time again outside of this one particular survey. Infact, this trend is seen throughout criminal proceedings in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
