Three Important Questions To Ask When Hiring An Arizona DUI Lawyer
How many DUI cases has the lawyer handled?
Ask the defense lawyer to give you an actual number of DUI cases they have handled. Also, ask how many DUI trials they have personally handled. Mr. Benikov has handled thousands of DUI matters and has personally done over 100 DUI trials in the state of Arizona.
Will the lawyer you initially meet with personally handle your matter?
This is important because some law offices have a different lawyer actually handle your case rather than the lawyer you initially meet with. One lawyer may sign you up but when you go to court a different lawyer from their firm may be there. Mr. Benikov personally handles all his cases so you never have to worry about being handed off to a junior associate.
Is the lawyer familiar with the court where you have been charged with a DUI?
Every court is different, has different rules, and different ways of doing things. A lawyer that is not familiar with a certain court may not be able to get you the best outcome. Mr. Benikov has appeared in every court in Maricopa County and has handled hundreds of cases in many of the courts including Scottsdale, Phoenix, Mesa, and Chandler Municipal Courts.
There are hundreds of different Misdemeanor offenses in Arizona. Some of the most common ones are Driving under the influence, assault, criminal damage, shoplifting, and theft. Some of these charges can become felonies in some instances. Mr. Benikov has handled thousands of misdemeanor cases in his 10 years as a defense lawyer. There are not many types of misdemeanor cases that Mr. Benikov has not handled.
