Hiring a DWI attorney is invaluable to your case. It is better to hire an expert in DWI who maintains a deep understanding of the many complex issues that often arise in a DWI case, than a general practitioner who has a more shallow knowledge of several areas of practice.

Posting your bond is the first step to get out of jail as quickly as possible. Once your bond is set, bail may be posted as a cash bond with the sheriff’s office.

It might sound cliché, but time is truly of the essence in your case.
