Know All Factors in Your Case
In pursuing all angles and providing the strongest defense for your case, an Orange County DUI lawyer literally knows every bend in the road.
Evidence Your Attorney Will Collect
In fact, your attorney may call in experts and pursue an investigation or discovery effort to find out the following information to aid your case:
- The prior reports by the arresting officer. Often, police use the very same descriptions for all DUI reports. That can call the accuracy of the report into question since no two situations are the same. On the other hand, if the officer failed to ask you questions that he usually asks, that might boost your case, too, suggesting lack of thoroughness.
- Your driving history: This may lead your lawyer to recommend a plea bargain in case of a poor record. Keep in mind that a conviction may lead to suspension of your license so your attorney may suggest a plea arrangement for an offense with low or no points, if applicable.
- Your criminal record: Your legal professional needs to know your record and all about it, and about any witnesses.
- The scene: In the event of a serious accident, your attorney will hire an expert accident reconstructionist to determine whether any other problems occurred at the same site. Was the roadway partly to blame? Did the driving conditions contribute to the mishap?
