Some basics you need to know when you are arrested for a San Diego DUI and trying to find the best DUI Lawyer Attorney for you.

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you may have several questions about the options that are available in your situation. The most important thing that you need to realize at this time is that you have to mount an aggressive defense to any DUI charges you are facing. This posting discusses some important information that you should know about DUI charges. You should call the firm now for a free case evaluation at (858) 751-4384. Begin now with completing a free case evaluation.  

Every conviction counts.

While many people have been convicted of DUI, it is important to note that even first-time offenses carry serious consequences that have lifelong implications. This is a criminal conviction, and you will have to disclose this information to employers and also list it on other important documents. This can make it very challenging to find work, obtain loans or work in selected careers.  I am always asked "do I need an attorney for a first time DUI"?  If you rely on your license and your future career may be impacted by a criminal offense than the answer is "yes".  I then answer the 2nd question of "can I help".  That answer is "yes", my experience in this field can help you get you a favorable resolution.

Prosecutors are not looking out for you.

After your arrest, prosecutors will immediately begin gathering the evidence that they will use in order to obtain a conviction in your case. If you tell them any information, it becomes fair game at trial. You need to be sure that you realize the impact that these statements can have upon the defenses available to you.

Additionally, the prosecutors may try to convince you to plead guilty to the charges. They may make you feel pressured into making this decision so that your case goes away. While the immediate result may bring an end to your current problems, the conviction can come back to haunt you later in life.

I spent almost 10 years as a prosecutor.  I can tell you their job is conviction and punishment.  You will not get an offer because you are a nice person or never has been in trouble before.  You would think completing volunteer work instead of trash pickup would help the community....but they do not care about that.  They want sanctions/punishment.

There are defenses available to you.

No matter how bleak your case may seem, there are avenues available to you to contest these charges; however, you need to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney to determine the best strategy for your case. Your attorney will be able to examine the actions of law enforcement officers to ensure that all procedures were adhered to during and after the stop.

Your lawyer can also explain your case to you in detail so that you understand the possible consequences of a conviction. This will help you make the right decisions to determine the how you wish to proceed. Your rights are important, but you need to act fast in order to protect them throughout your case. You should call the firm now for a free case evaluation at (858) 751-4384. The key is to be proactive.
