Drunk driving allegations can threaten your freedom and your immigration status. If this frightens you, then the best thing you can do to put your mind at ease is develop the best criminal defense possible under the circumstances. Whether that means trying to suppress evidence of field sobriety or breathalyzer test results in hopes of obtaining an acquittal or negotiating for lesser charges with less severe penalties, you need to be prepared to aggressively advocate for yourself.
Why not a public defender?
If you’ve been accused of a crime, you might qualify for representation by a public defender. While these attorneys might be able to adequately represent you, the truth of the matter is that there’s some risk with going that route. Public defenders are often overworked and underpaid, which means that their time is limited and their devotion to your case may be minimal. They might be driven to resolve your case so that they can more easily manage their caseload rather than fight for the best outcome possible. Additionally, many public defenders are newer attorneys who simply don’t have the experience necessary to handle your case in the best way possible.
Skilled representation is available

Choosing how you want to be represented, if at all, in your drunk driving case is an important process that can make all the difference. So don’t be too quick to settle on an attorney assuming that they’re all the same. They’re not. Instead, look into their track record of success and the type of customer service they provide their clients. We can say that we take pride in how we represent in both of those areas.
