How Do I Fight a DUI?

If you were just arrested for driving under the influence in Orange County, you may not be 100% sure of what to do. Do you plead guilty or no contest and take your punishment? Or, do you hire a DUI attorney and fight it?

Whatever you do, don’t plead guilty or no contest! By doing this, a conviction is guaranteed. You would never know what kinds of defenses were available or what type of plea deal you could have worked out if you gave up.

The best way to fight a DUI is to get an experienced local DUI lawyer to help you fight your charges. A lot of people don’t realize how complicated DUIs are, and how there is an entire science and technicalities involved.

We suggest that you contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc. for a free consultation. You can meet with an experienced DUI attorney who will assess your case and determine which defense strategy would be the most applicable.

If for some reason you go to the arraignment before hiring a defense attorney, make sure that you plead not guilty at the arraignment and get counsel ASAP.

Requesting a DMV Hearing

Make sure that you request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest. If you do not request a DMV hearing within this period of time, your driver’s license will be suspended automatically 30 days after your arrest.

Regardless of the circumstances of your case, you NEED an experienced DUI lawyer to go through your case with a fine tooth comb to search for any errors or holes in the prosecution’s case. DUIs are not like other criminal cases, they are very scientific. That said, you do not want to represent yourself.

Contrary to popular belief, there are many legal defenses available for DUI, but it takes an experienced DUI attorney to navigate the process. Just as you wouldn’t hire a family doctor for brain surgery, you don’t want to hire an attorney that only dabbles in DUI. Instead, hire someone who focuses on DUI defense.
