Metro Court

Los Angeles Metro Court DUI Lawyer

Metropolitan Courthouse
1945 South Hill Street
Los Angeles, CA 90007


The Metro Courthouse, because of its central location (near Hollywood and the bars in downtown Los Angeles), handles most of the DUI cases filed in Los Angeles County. In handling thousands of DUI cases in the Metro Courthouse over the past twenty five years, I find that this courthouse is one of the more reasonable as far as DUI cases goes in LA. Because of the huge volume of cases that pass through this courthouse on a daily basis, they must be fair when it comes to prosecuting DUI’s, or they will simply be over run with too many cases to deal with. Having handled so many cases in this courthouse, I can usually give you a pretty good idea of what you are looking at when you come into meet with me.

Developing Best DUI Defense Strategy

When figuring out the best way to handled your DUI case, your best strategy is to meet with an attorney who knows the courthouse and the personnel in the courthouse your case is pending. Instead of relying on someone who is a sales person over the phone, you should speak to a DUI defense attorney who has traveled the path your are about to take. I find that after my clients meet with me for the first time, there is huge sense of relief once they realize what they are truly up against and see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. No one likes to be in the dark about their fate. Having a plan on exactly how your DUI case will be handled and what you can to to help will give you a sense of control back and begin the process of putting the criminal justice system behind you.

It is important that when you come into meet with me, you give them the straight forward truth about the circumstances surrounding your DUI arrest and then I will let you know what your chances are for success and what you can do to help me help you. There are a number of factors that the prosecutor and judge consider when formulating their position related to any given DUI.

They will look at the person’s prior criminal record, driving record, conduct in the current case and a host of other factors before they decide how dangerous they are to society. This concept of “dangerousness” is an important one to understand, because it will drive how the prosecutors handle your case and your punishment. The more dangerous you are viewed by them, the more restrictions and punishments they will try and put on you. If you can be viewed as not being very dangerous and your conduct looked at as an aberration, then you will be in the best position to receive a favorable outcome!
