Arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Orange County? You are
not alone. According to data collected by
The Century Council, approximately 472 California drivers were arrested for
DUI every day in 2012, and that does not include the number of drivers who
were actually driving under the influence of alcohol or
DUI arrest, you need to find a defense lawyer with the skill and experience to help
you understand your legal rights and options. All too often, people mistakenly
believe that just because they blew over .08%, or because their blood
results came back with over a .08% (the legal limit), they have automatically
lost their case. This could NOT be further from the truth!
If you’re in this predicament, don’t lose hope. Hiring the right
DUI defense lawyer could make all the difference in your case. But, like any important
decision, choosing the right attorney should be based on research. Here
are a few questions you can ask an attorney during your initial consultation
to help you make the best decision for your unique case.
How much experience do you have handling DUI cases like mine?
Some lawyers focus on multiple areas of law, such as family law, personal injury,
and criminal defense. While these types of law firms may have considerable
legal experience, they might not have enough practice handling DUI cases.
If possible, work with a lawyer who is
devoted to DUI defense.
How Strong is My DUI Case?
Without conducting an investigation, a lawyer can only speculate about
the strength of your case. Even still, it is imperative to
gain as much insight as possible. Discuss potential evidence, the magnitude of your charges, and the potency
of the prosecution's case against you.
What are my legal options with your firm?
After an arrest, you may feel overwhelmed and hopeless. A skilled DUI
lawyer can help you understand your legal options so you don't have
to worry about the future or your case. Depending on the circumstances
surrounding your arrest, you could have a variety of options, such as
a DUI trial or diversion program.
