The first step when facing an OVI is to act quickly. While you may be overwhelmed, you need to make the right decision when hiring an experienced OVI lawyer who is extremely familiar with the court you will appear in.
While it is not absolutely necessary to hire an attorney prior to your arraignment, or the initial court appearance, doing so will serve two purposes:
- Putting your mind at ease in discussing defenses and possibly outcomes.
- While the main purpose of the arraignment is to address the charges and enter a plea of not guilty, the experienced OVI defense lawyer will explore getting your driver’s license and driving privileges restored sooner rather than later.
The sooner you speak with your lawyer, the sooner your lawyer can begin working both with and for you to build your case and defense to the charges.
While it may be months before your case is set for trial there will be several important issues and hearings that must be properly and aggressively addressed to insure the absolute best end result for you.
