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.
When arrested for a DUI, you have two choices:
When hiring a lawyer to represent you in your DUI case, look for true expertise in DUI Defense.

On April 24, 2017, the Daily Bulletin posted "Man gets 15 years in DUI fatal because judge had already warned him about driving drunk". In essence, an Alhambra man received a 15-year to life sentence for driving drunk while on probation. According to the report, “Munoz was prosecuted for murder because he had been warned about driving drunk when put on probation for a 2012 DUI conviction.”
A prior DUI conviction can have devastating effects for the future. 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 a crime. Getting arrested does not establish guilt. A prior conviction, however, can be used by the prosecutor, however, as was the case here in the case against Munoz.
