7 steps to hiring the best DUI lawyers in Los Angeles.

1) Create a list of potential DUI lawyers.

Search by area and/or specialization for lawyers that are licensed in California, that specialize in DUI cases, and are located and practice in the Los Angeles area.

2) Search the web for information about the Los Angeles lawyers on your list.

Do a name search. Find their web pages. Get as much information as possible.

3) Make a list of questions.

It’s your case and your life, so ask them everything you can think of. Consider questions like, Do you specialize in DUI law? Who will handle my case? What is your experience? May I have a copy of your qualifications? Do you have a list of past clients I can contact? How many DUI cases have you handled, and what's your success rate? How would you defend me? What might happen to me? What are your fees and costs? How much will I expect to pay in court costs?

4) Contact all the lawyers on your list.

Ask your questions. Listen to their answers and offers. If they don’t want to answer, you don’t want them. Take notes so you can compare lawyers later.

5) Compare the lawyers.

Compare them against each other with the information you've gathered. Find those that you think would be the best fit for you. List your top two or three choices and make appointments to see them.

6) Talk face-to-face with the lawyer.

Make sure it is the person who will actually be handling your case. Ask your questions again. Focus on details of how they plan to defend you and the estimated costs.

7) Compare again and make your choice.

Choose the one you feel will give you the best possible defense. Make an appointment. Be sure you clearly understand the terms of the contract agreement. Sign the papers and you’ve hired a Los Angeles lawyer!
