Did your night out end in an arrest for drunk driving? Are you now in need of a DUI defense attorney? If so, you will need to make a quick and smart decision as to which lawyer in Michigan will represent you. This is an important decision because a DUI conviction can affect your life in many ways. There are several penalties that may be imposed and the severity of those penalties will depend on if this is your first, second, third or subsequent DUI, as well as if there was an accident or high BAC involved.
A DUI defense attorney should evaluate your case and determine what defense offers the best chance at a successful outcome.
How a defense attorney evaluates a DUI case
There are many factors that an attorney must evaluate in order to determine what chance he has at winning a case at trial. As your DUI defense attorney, he will look at your criminal history, including any previous DUI convictions. If you do not have a criminal history, that will bode well in your favor. The attorney will also review any evidence and reports, including
− Video and audio files from the patrol car or booking room.
− Datamaster breath instrument printouts and calibration reports.
− Officer Datamaster instrument certification.
− Arrest, booking and medical reports.
A great DUI defense attorney will tell you exactly what you can expect for each hearing, including an administrative hearing. Because most prosecutors will not offer a deal that will plea a DUI down to a charge that does not include a DUI conviction, a trial may be necessary. You will need an experienced trial lawyer in Michigan in order to win your case.
