DUI Defense is Not Created Equal

Remember, there is a difference between defending someone accused of DUI and ‘facilitating their DUI conviction’.  It is easy to get an offer from the Judge or District Attorney, and then help the person accused of DUI to fill out plea documents and submit them to the court – that is not defending.  To defend a DUI case, all of the evidence related to the arrest must be gathered, and then analyzed, so to determine the best defense for that particular case – this requires extensive knowledge of the law as well as the science relating to DUI.   Attorney Manuel J. Barba has that extensive knowledge.
