Long Beach DUI Lawyer
Long Beach Courthouse
275 Magnolia Ave
Long Beach, CA 90802
Over the many years of practicing DUI defense in the Long Beach court system, I have had much success and enjoy handling DUI cases in this courthouse.
In my opinion, your best strategy in Long Beach, California, is to find an attorney who has been down the path you are about to travel and give them an honest rundown on what exactly happened on the night you were arrested. If people are honest with me, I can usually give them a pretty good idea of what they are looking at in court and what they can do to help themselves.
DUI Prosecutors and Deciding Factors
There are several factors that the prosecutor and judge will be evaluating in deciding how you should be treated in a DUI situation. Some of these critical factors can be argued by your attorney in a favorable light to you, and a savvy DUI attorney can tip the scales of justice in your favor.
The court and prosecutor will look at how high your blood alcohol level was, whether you were involved in an accident causing injury, and your overall danger level related to your actions the night of your arrest.
The more dangerous you were, the more likely they would want a harsh punishment and conviction to go on your record.
If, on the other hand, you were pulled over for a minor offense, have a clean record, and did not have a very high blood alcohol level. You will be in a much stronger position to negotiate a successful resolution.
