And you should if you like paying extra.
That's right. Los Angeles and Orange County DUI lawyers add a nice $1,000 - 4,000 "tax" for going out of county, to defend a San Diego DUI court case or handle a San Diego DMV hearing.
Check the price of gas lately?
More importantly, an out of county California DUI attorney who has to TRAVEL in a vehicle spends additional hours just driving, trying to figure out directions, parking and local court procedures.
A local San Diego DUI criminal defense attorney already is there and knows all that stuff.
So why gamble? Because it's closer to you? Is THAT really a good reason to hire a California DUI lawyer?
Don't you really want a California DUI Lawyers Association Specialist?
There are just three located in San Diego. There are more such CDLA Specialists in LA, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Do you really not want to pay for their time in the car and/or lack of familiarity with local practices? Didn't think so.
