There are three things you should know about beating your DUI charges in North Justice Center

There are three things you should know about beating your DUI charges in North Justice Center.

When you get a DUI, it’s normal to feel confused, afraid, even angry. But there’s hope. DUI cases are very defensible as long as you have a properly trained attorney defending you in court.

  • DUI Charges can be dismissed
  • Field Sobriety tests are rarely reliable.
  • Chemical tests are not always accurate.

When arrested for a DUI, you have two choices:

  1. Do nothing: Your license will be suspended and you will have a criminal conviction on your record.
  2. Hire an expert DUI defense lawyer: You have a much better shot at keeping your license and avoid receiving a conviction.

When hiring a lawyer to represent you in your DUI case, look for true expertise in DUI Defense. A lawyer who takes every case that comes along may not have the training and knowledge to win your case. Even attorneys who have experience defending criminal cases may not know the effective and proven strategies that have worked in situations like yours.

Like any important decision, research your defense options carefully. DUI cases are complex to defend and the attorney who represents you should have proven legal expertise in:

  • Field sobriety testing
  • How the human body processes alcohol or drugs
  • Breath, blood, and urine test analysis

Without an expert DUI defense attorney defending you, you will likely not be able to get the best possible result in your DUI case.

“When we first take a case the most important thing that I want to find out is my client’s story of what happened. I want to find out who that person is because this is the person that we’re going to fight for, to represent them and make sure their rights are defended, and to force the government to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Fullerton DUI Cases in the News

Most of the cases that end badly are due to poor or insufficient representation in court. And it doesn’t help that this reporter tilts the story in favor of the police report.

On April 27, 2017, the Orange County Register posted “La Mirada man arrested on suspicion of DUI after 2-car crash in Fullerton“. A La Mirada man was arrested late Tuesday, April 25, on suspicion of driving under the influence after a two-car crash in Fullerton left a man with serious injuries, police said.

Just before midnight Tuesday, 33-year-old Paul Espinoza was driving his Ford Escape when he collided with a Toyota Prius, Fullerton Police Sgt. Jon Radus said. The injured man is expected to survive.

Because someone was injured, Espinoza could be charged with a felony. To walk into Court and plead guilty without having an expert DUI defense attorney examine the evidence in an alleged DUI case is the kind of mistake that invites disaster. Drinking alcohol and driving a car is not, in and of itself, a crime. Getting arrested does not establish guilt.

The OC Register suggests that Paul Espinoza is guilty of a felony DUI, but it takes an expert DUI defense lawyer to establish the facts by carefully examining the evidence.
