I Just Got A DUI: What Do I Do Now?
When you get a DUI, your world has been flipped upside down. Let us help you get it right again.
What Should A DUI Lawyer Do For Me?
When looking for an attorney, the first thing you should look for is whether or not they’ve proven themselves in the courtroom. Whether your case goes to trial or results in settlement or even dismissal, your attorney’s trial experience will affect the final outcome. Prosecutors know which DUI attorneys have high-level jury trial experience and demeanor. When they see a successful name as your DUI attorney, it cannot help but guide their decision-making, which helps you get the consideration you need.
After nearly 25 years of experience as prosecutors, our attorneys have developed a track record and trial acumen at the highest level. We’ve had favorable results in trials of all types – from Arson to First Degree Murder – and in all manner of DUI trials.
In defense practice, we focus on defending drug charges, DUI charges, aggravated assault, and other felonies. We occasionally will accept a misdemeanor client in the right situation. When Sanford, Schiel, & Britzius take you on as client, you have unmatched access to your attorney, including his or her personal cell phone number. We want to do everything possible to help you through this difficult time in your life.
Your DUI attorney should attack the case from various angles. For example, your DUI attorney should screen the case for constitutional pitfalls in the Government’s case and seek out possible suppression issues. Very often, in cases involving marijuana or other drug charges, the issue of suppression of evidence is dispositive to the entire case. Your DUI attorney should scour discovery (the government’s evidence) and evaluate the case so that the client can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
All the while, your DUI lawyer should be in constant negotiation and communication with the prosecution to see what options become available. And, of course, your DUI lawyer should be ready and willing to spar in the courtroom in front of a jury. This is a rare talent, and indispensable for an attorney practicing criminal law. Without this skill, you are left with little option at the end.
