WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR CASE IF YOU ARE ARRESTED FOR A DUI IN THE MALIBU AREA?
I have handled thousands of DUI’s in both of these courthouses and find the prosecutors to be very reasonable when it comes to dealing with DUI cases. Even though DUI arrests are based on the political pressure put on the police by the legislature and community, the prosecutors and judges will listen to arguments that make sense and give people the benefit of the doubt in the right case. Of course you will need a local DUI attorney to champion your cause in order to achieve a fair result.
As far as what will happen to you, it depends on how strong of a case the police are able to build against you for the prosecutors to be able to obtain a conviction against you in a jury trial. If the prosecutors believe that they can prove their case against you, then they will be expecting you to take a plea bargain. Obviously this is where you must have a seasoned savvy DUI defense attorney by your side advising you on the best way to handled your case. This is no time for rookies. You need someone who has been down the road you are about to travel and had success time and time again.
When I meet with clients to discuss their DUI case, I have one key goal in mind…I want them to leave the meeting with peace of mind and a plan of action to take with them. I can not tell you how relieved people feel when they know what they are looking at and what they can do to assist their attorney. Then it is just a matter of executing the plan and figure out how to make the best result occur for the client.
I pride myself in being honest and upfront with the client right from the beginning about exactly what I believe the perimeters are of what they are looking at moving forward. Trying to paint some rosy picture of their case does not do anyone any good. We try and get your case dismissed, but if the government has the evidence they need to convict you, then it is in your best interested to work out a favorable deal as soon as possible and move on with your live.
