Helpful Information Archives

Arrested For DUI? What You Need To Know

For many individuals, being arrested for a DUI is the first time that they ever have any interaction with the criminal justice system. This inexperience often leads to serious mistakes that jeopardize the potential defenses that may be available to them to fight the charges they are facing. If you have been arrested for DUI, you need to be sure that you know what you need to do to improve your chances of offering a successful defense to these allegations.

San Diego teen discusses his experience with San Diego Police SDPD

There can hopefully be a silver lining in the tragedy of the Mike Brown shooting. I will tell you my biggest issue with the whole event right now if that weeks has past without even a police incident report. Are they crafting his report to the ever changing facts? I wonder if this is the departments policy, because most agencies require an incident report within days of the incident.

Get off Probation Early!

When someone pleads guilty, they are often placed on probation.  Depending on the crime, probation can be “formal” or “summary”.  Formal is normally when you are assigned a probation officer who you periodically meet.  Summary probation is non-supervised probation and nothing more is needed if you abide by your terms of probation.

DMV Reexaminations and Mature Drivers

The loss of a driving privilege can be serious for people, especially mature drivers who are still living in the hustle and bustle of the suburbs. They may want to slow down. However, they will be sharing the road with people who always seem to be in a hurry and are often distracted themselves with phones, music, etc. There is an intricate balance between public safety and an individual’s ability to live. For more information check out these links.

Proactive Defense

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.
