What you can do to be proactive when arrested for a DUI

"If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur." - Red Adair

Too often, San Diego Defense Attorneys are REACTIVE, waiting to see what type of offer the prosecutor will make before advising their client accordingly. This will drag out the case unnecessarily. Attorneys use this philosophy because this prolongs the action to ensure they get paid in full. This approach does not benefit the individual facing criminal charges.

At the Law Offices of Mark Deniz we use a PROACTIVE defense. We utilize the time between the arrest and the initial court date to maximize success. We begin analyzing the case and forming defense strategies as soon as possible. We begin to assess what are the realistic outcomes of the case and use the time efficiently to put the client in the best position possible.  Call our offices at (858) 751-4384 for a free case evaluation.

This may include beginning investigations, preparing character references, and presenting mitigating evidence to the prosecution and the judge as soon as possible.

The best defense is a good offense, and criminal law is no different. Be proactive!

When I work with clients I can tell the six weeks (usually) from the date of arrest to the court date can be a stressful time.  The waiting is extruciating for them.  This is a good time to be proactive.  You can get reports, videos, etc.  We prepare our clients personal information so the judge and prosecution will know more about our clients than a booking photo or an arrest report.  Finally, we have our clients do programs or other acts that assist them in getting the best resoltuion.

The goal is for the client not to be charged (see above).  It does not happen often in DUI cases, but it is a goal to begin with.  The method gets someone the best resolution possible.
