Why should I hire a lawyer for a DUI or a criminal charge?
When you’ve been accused of a crime in California, it’s critical to make the smartest decisions to protect your rights, stay out of jail, and keep your fines at a minimum.
Most people we speak with know right away that they need help from a private DUI attorney and criminal defense lawyer, but some do consider the option of not hiring an attorney and defending themselves in court. There are several distinct factors to consider:
First, it’s your future, your drivers license, and potentially your employment on the line…it’s really up to you how far you’re willing to go to protect yourself. When you hire a attorney to represent you, you are showing the court that you take yourself and your rights seriously and you are demanding to be treated with respect. We don’t just seek to settle your case and risk a possible detriment to your career or your future. We will use every defense strategy possible to get you or your loved one the best possible result, even if it means going to trial.
If you believe you are guilty and you have no options, a skilled Orange County defense attorney can often get penalties & fines significantly reduced. We also have a history of getting costly fines removed substituted for community service, which can be a big benefit. In some cases we are able to get the entire case thrown out.
I have won hundreds of DUI and criminal cases in Orange County, and as a result, I have experience and relationships with the judges that can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
I take on a limited case volume, specifically so I can provide the best possible service and results. My #1 goal is to get your charges reduced and dropped, keep you out of jail, and protect what’s important to you.
It’s your life, and your future…it’s really up to you how far you’re willing to go to protect that. When prison, fines, your record, and/or your career are on the line, now is the most crucial time to make the right decision.
