There are many attorneys out there, but how does a client determine which one is best for them? One important thing that clients should understand is that there are different approaches to practicing law.
One such approach is the high volume, paper pusher approach. Paper pusher attorneys take on a lot of cases and process them very quickly. They usually accept the first offer the district attorney gives them without fighting for a better option. Their entire practice is based on volume. They do not spend time investigating cases and do not take cases to trial because it is too time consuming for them. These attorneys tend to charge low rates, because they plan on spending little time on your case.
Another approach is that of a trial lawyer like Attorney Mike Bowser. Attorney Bowser takes on a limited number of cases and only those cases where he feels he can make a difference. The reason he has to limit his cases is because each case is an individual, a family, a future that is on the line and he wants to give each case his full attention.
He personally investigates and prepares each case with the intention to fight to protect his clients. If this means putting in long hours to prepare for a trial, then he is ready for that. Attorney Bowser is at home in the courtroom and knows that good things happen when you aggressively challenge the state to prove their evidence. In fact, last year, Attorney Bowser won a not guilty verdict in 83% of his trials.
Many clients think they are saving money by choosing a cheap lawyer. Unfortunately, when you add up the costs of jail time, not being able to drive, increased insurance rates, and having a DUI on your criminal record, the costs of a conviction far outweigh the cost of hiring a better attorney.
If you just want to plead guilty, then maybe a paper pusher is the right attorney for you. If you want to protect your future and fight these charges, call 888-526-9737 to schedule your free consultation with Attorney Mike Bowser.
