Why engage a drink driving lawyer in relation to drink driving charges?

Court can be an intimidating place, particularly for the unrepresented or first time defendant. The court staff, prosecutors and magistrates are all unfamiliar. That is why it is so important to engage lawyers who have experience representing clients charged with drink driving and DUI charges at a Court where you must attend.

Drink driving law is complex. You could be walking into a hornet’s nest and not be aware until it is too late. We have represented hundreds of clients in the NSW Courts. Don’t make the mistake to represent yourself or engage inexperienced lawyers at the first instance.
