Absolutely not. While you want to ensure that the attorney or law firm you hire has some experience with the specific county, the court, and DA’s office that will be handling the case, it is not critical to hire an attorney who resides or has an office in that county. The days of playing poker or golf with the judge and District Attorney are long gone. What matters is reputation, experience and competence. Hiring an attorney who knows very little about how to properly defend a DUI case, but who works in a particular court frequently will do you no good. You are much better off hiring an attorney who has expert level knowledge in DUI law and limited experience with a particular court than you are the other way around. If you can find a firm or attorney who has both, then you have found someone you should strongly consider retaining.
