Choosing a lawyer to represent you during DUI proceedings is one of the most important legal decisions you can make. The consequences of DUI can be severe and drastically alter your life for years to come. When you are accused of driving under the influence, you need to understand your rights, understand the process, and have peace of mind that the outcomes will be the best they can possibly be.
Retaining an attorney to represent you in your DUI case is essential. The right attorney will ensure that you make decisions about your case with all the necessary information all along the way. Too often, people think that because a DUI can be classified as a misdemeanor rather than a felony, it is not a serious issue. But this is a grave mistake that could come with dire consequences.
DUI cases can end in harsh punishments such as jail time, revocation of your driving privileges, having an interlock ignition device installed on your car, and heavy fines. To help avoid these punishments, an aggressive attorney can negotiate a reasonable plea agreement.
If a plea agreement isn't possible, we will take your case to trial. At trial, a strong attorney will attack such things as: officer recollection, BAC results, flaws in field sobriety tests, or even the reason you were stopped by the police in the first place.
Many people believe that if you have failed a Blood Alcohol Content test that you are certain to be convicted of DUI, but this assumption is wrong.
An aggressive, prepared attorney can attack the validity of the blood or breath test, since these tests can very often be misleading or inaccurate. Many factors go into a BAC test result and unfortunately, one of those factors is human error. Mishandling of evidence, incorrectly administering the test, the time the test was administered, and many other factors that could lead to an acquittal.
Having been on both sides of a DUI case, prosecutor and defense attorney, I have gained crucial experience in helping my clients with their cases and obtain outcomes that are in their best interest. I will fight for you and for your rights. You deserve an experienced attorney who understands how the prosecutor will think work, giving you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
