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!
