If you have been arrested and charged with DUI in California, you face a serious legal issue. This is not a situation to be taken lightly, as every level of DUI charges carries significant consequences, which can include heavy fines, increased insurance costs, loss of your driving privileges or even jail time for more serious DUI offenses.
Many DUI defense clients feel any or all of the following emotions when faced with this situation: embarrassment, shame, fear, anxiety, anger or even depression. However, you need to remember two things if you are faced with a charge of DUI:
- You need to carefully select a California DUI attorney who understands the process;
- You are from alone.
The legal landscape is full of California DUI lawyers for a reason. Every year, well over 100,000 people are arrested for DUI in California. In 2003 alone, nearly 186,000 DUI arrests were made in the state, and the California Department of Motor Vehicles, which records such statistics, estimates that 75% of those charged were ultimately convicted.
All of this means that you owe it to yourself to provide the finest defense available if this situation arises. Given the technical nature of DUI arrests and prosecution, you need to be sure that any California DUI attorney you retain has a full understanding of the process involved. This level of understanding is the product of experience, and experience is only attained by prioritizing time towards a particular area of law.
