WHAT IS YOUR BEST STRATEGY IF YOU HAVE A DUI CASE IN THE LONG BEACH COURTHOUSE?
Over the many years of practicing DUI defense in the Long Beach court system I have had much success and enjoy handling DUI cases in this courthouse. In my opinion, your best strategy in the Long Beach court is to find an attorney who has been down the path you are about to travel and give them an honest run down on what exactly happened on the night you were arrested. If people are honest with me I can usually give them a pretty good idea of what they are looking at in court and what they can do to help themselves.
There are a number of factors that the prosecutor and judge will be evaluating in deciding how you should be treated in a DUI situation. Some of these important factors can be argued by your attorney in a favorable light to you and a savvy DUI defense attorney can tip the scales of justice in your favor.
The court and prosecutor will be looking at how high your blood alcohol level was, whether you were involved in an accident or hurt anyone and will be looking at your over all danger level related to your actions the night of your arrest. The more dangerous you were, the more likely they will want a harsh punishment and conviction to go on your record. If, on the other hand, you were pulled over for a minor offense, have a clean record and did not have a very high blood alcohol level, then you will be in a much stronger position to negotiate a successful resolution.
How should you approach hiring the right DUI attorney if you have a case in Long Beach? You should obviously do your homework and make sure you meet with an attorney who knows what they are doing and has had success in this courthouse.
I have a goal of coming up with a plan at the first meeting of exactly what we are going to do in order to get you the best result. Not all cases are the same and preparation and the right approach are crucial. We want to make sure that your DUI case is handled as discreetly and professionally as possible. Once you have an advocate by your side who knows what they are doing and can give you an honest assessment of your case, you will have a sense of calm as you begin the process to put this matter behind you!
I like it when people come see me or talk to me over the phone with a list of questions that they need answer to understand what they are up against and what I can do to help them. If you are straight forward and honest with me, then I can give you a clear understanding of what I can do to help you and what you can do to help yourself.
