Cross-Examination of Witnesses at DUI Trial
The prosecutors usually have the deck stacked in their favor regarding a DUI case in Los Angeles County. However, there are ways to turn the tide in the defendant's favor that only the best and most savvy DUI attorneys can pull off for their clients.
I have had some of my most significant victories in DUI cases when I have had the opportunity to challenge the prosecutor's case through an effective cross-examination of their most crucial witnesses.
Whether it be challenging the stop of my client's vehicle or attacking a statement that my client took, the weapon of cross-examination in the proper DUI case can mean the difference between winning and losing. My client suffers the most severe consequences a DUI case can dole out, and they taste the sweetness of victory.
Challenging The Prosecutor's Case
There is nothing sweeter for a DUI lawyer than dismantling the prosecutor's case piece by piece. They are so used to winning that it has a genuinely sobering effect on them when their case is ripped away from them and dismissed.
This lasts for the case you are defending, but it also carries over into other instances where a client has an excellent legal issue to be flushed out.
They know that when I tell them that my client is not taking a particular deal or will not lead to anything, I mean business and am out to destroy their case and embarrass them.
Not every case can be dismissed, but it is worth its weight in gold if you have an attorney who knows the proper point to challenge them on and who knows the value of an issue, and can execute the winning strategy every single time.
When you have a DUI case, you should be looking for an attorney who will give you a straightforward assessment of your case and tell you what you can and can not expect out of your case.
It does you no good if the salesperson on the other end of the line tells you a bunch of defenses that have nothing to do with your particular case.
When someone speaks to your particular case with know of the facts and the experience to back it up, this gives you the peace of mind you need to move on and forward from your DUI in a positive manner, confident you have someone on your side that will fight for you and make sure you get the best result based on your particular set of circumstances.
The point of cross-examination is to expose any ambiguities in the witness testimony. As your attorney, we use cross-examination to discredit the arresting officer's testimony to our ability. We use the opportunity of cross-examining to poke holes in the prosecution's case. We use cross-examination to bring out all our client's positive things during the arrest.
The prosecution will only point out all the errors and mistakes our client made during the arrest, things that a sober person may engage in, and use them as evidence to prove driving under the influence. Our job is to step in and step up and contest the ambiguous statements and insufficient evidence.
