What is likely going to happen to me? That is what the clients and potential clients as when we first meet.There is usually some mandatory terms that come with most cases (such as fines). The Interlock Ignition Device (IID) is one of the potential sanctions that come with a San Diego DUI. It is a punishment that can be avoided in most first time DUIs if there is a sound proposal to the prosecutor or judge.
I was reading the news today and ran by an article about a suspected San Diego DUI driver that hit a police car (see article below) as it was going on the wrong side of the freeway.
Cases in law are all different yet all the same. A DUI Defense attorney goes through the same questions when they obtain a new client arrested for a San Diego DUI.
When a DUI attorney fields calls from a prospective client you get a variety of questions that span into virtually every aspect of their llives. Questions such as:
I receive a lot of inquiries from people who were just released from jail or their loved ones are in jail after a DUI arrest. The situation usually comes out of the blue and it involves someone who has never been through the process.
People start remembering all the stories about DUIs they got from friends, news, etc. Some of them are true with most being myths. People then start googling and get a slew of information, with a lot of the information being too general or conflicting.
When I left the prosecution side of DUIs I spent a lot of time making a website that had true content that could assist people with answering questions. There is no website out there that has all the answers to DUIs. Every DUI case is unique and you can "what if" yourself to death. What I recommend you check out local attorneys who have DUI experience with solid reviews. You be proactive and begin working on your case. You have 10 days from the date of arrest to have the attorney to contact the DMV to stay the license suspension and six weeks until your first court date. You want to be proactive.
