The importance of having a "Top-Rated" Trial Lawyer cannot be overstated. The O.C. District Attorney's Office has recently been getting tougher on DUI offenders making negotiated "plea bargains" for reductions of the charge or charges much more difficult. The District Attorneys in some courts here have refused to enter into a plea negotiations to a reduction of driving under the influence charges on cases with blood alcohol levels as low as 0.05%.
If you submitted to a blood test - and prescribed medications are found in your blood - you face charges under Vehicle Code Section 23152(e) for driving while under the influence of drugs, or Vehicle Code Section 23152(f) if any of those medications were taken together with alcohol. Those medications are going to be used to allege a DUI-Drugs offense, or driving under the combined influence of drugs and alcohol. This is especially more common now that the O.C. District Attorney's Office has special prosecutors assigned to prosecute driving under the influence of drug or DUI-D cases.
HIRING A DUI ATTORNEY? FOR A SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME, YOU NEED A DUI TRIAL LAWYER
If you were charged, you need a skilled trial lawyer. Do not trust your case to just anyone. Many practitioners are just going to "plead you out" to a drunk driving conviction because they do not want to take cases to trial.
The need for a trial lawyer cannot be overstated as few have jury trial experience at the level of the attorneys of The SoCal Law Network. All litigators are lawyers, but not all are litigators. This is an important distinction. Trial expertise requires both natural talent and years of specialized legal training and experience. Effective trial attorneys evaluate and prepare each client's case from the very beginning. Trial Lawyers leverage that experience to minimize risks and maximize results, whether the case proceeds to a trial or not. They position their clients to receive the optimal outcome of their case. One should be diligent in determining a lawyer's jury trial experience as most have little, if any, real trial experience; but nevertheless represent themselves as trial lawyers. One should not take offense to answering questions regarding both their accomplishments and experience, but also their wins and losses.
