Burbank DUI Lawyer
WHAT IS YOUR BEST STRATEGY IF YOU HAVE A DUI PENDING IN THE BURBANK COURTHOUSE?
I have been handling DUI related cases in the Burbank court for the past twenty five years and in 1992 I worked for a Superior Court judge in Burbank and feel confident to successfully defend clients in this courthouse.
This is a conservative courthouse, but the prosecutors can be reasoned with under the appropriate circumstances and if the proper preparation has been put in prior to negotiating with them. In my opinion the attorney should be transparent with their client related to how they are going to handle their particular case and always strive to do just that.
Reviewing The Details of Your DUI Case
My first move when a client contacts me to represent them in a DUI case pending in Burbank is to have them come into my office and go over their entire case and discuss their life related to mitigating factors I can use to help them resolve the case in the best way possible.
As long as the client is honest with me and gives me all necessary information related to their DUI case, I will be able to assist them in designing a plan to deal with their DUI in a positive manner and set the case up to eventually be dismissed.
Not every case can be dismissed from the beginning, sometimes the client must negotiate a plea bargain first and then when their probation is over we can have the case dismissed. What ever your situation, your best strategy is to sit down with a local insider and figure out the plan that works best for you!
If you are facing a DUI charge in the Burbank Courthouse, you owe it to yourself to speak with a DUI attorney that has experience in Burbank. I have successfully handled many DUI cases in the Burbank Court. Approximately 20 years ago I was a research attorney for a Superior Court judge in the Burbank Courthouse. I learned all the in and outs of the Burbank system and have been using my experience to help my clients for nearly 2 decades. My credentials and experience are unmatched in Burbank!

The notice of order of suspension will be served on the by a peace officer pursuant to Section 13388 or 13382 and will be on a form form provided by the department. If the notice of the order of suspension has not been served, the department will mail a written notice of the order of the suspension to the last known address.
The order of suspension will specify the statutory grounds for the suspension – the effective date – and the right of the person to request an administrative hearing, along with the procedure for requesting an administrative hearing.
