Being charged with a criminal offense like DUI can quickly paralyze you into inaction. Unfortunately, the stakes are simply to high to allow that occur. If you make a half-hearted attempt to defend yourself against allegations of drunk driving, then the prosecution might run you over with the harshest penalties available under the law. Therefore, to protect your freedom, your finances, and your reputation, you might want to consider how to develop the best DUI defense possible under the circumstances.
There may be a number of criminal defense options available to help you fight DUI charges. You might be able to challenge the legality of the traffic stop that led to your arrest, the validity of a breathalyzer test result, and the appropriateness of any field sobriety tests that were administered. You might be able to draw the credibility of the prosecution’s key witnesses into question and/or get evidence suppressed. In other instances, you might have room to negotiate your case to avoid the harshest of penalties.
Of course, an aggressive prosecutor will likely challenge every step of the way, which is why you need to think about securing an aggressive legal advocate to defend you. At the Law Office of Ronald A. Cabanayan, our legal team has the experience to know what makes for a weak DUI case, which means we know when and how to push prosecutor’s to resolve cases favorably for our clients.

Facing criminal charges can be scary. However, with the right approach, accused individuals can be confident that their rights and best interests will be as fully protected as possible given the facts at hand.
