Our Approach to DUI Defense
During our initial meeting, we take the time to answer all your questions and review the entire situation. We discuss and review the events that led up to the initial contact with law enforcement and events that transpired with law enforcement.
Once you have retained our firm, we continue to build your case by researching all the legal issues involved in it. Along the way, we keep you informed about the status of your case. We understand that this is a stressful time – not knowing what is occurring with your case is frustrating. That is why we maintain a high level of communication to prevent any unnecessary frustration.
Throughout the process, we will:
- Work to try to keep you out of jail
- Help you understand the court process
- Interact with the court and aggressive prosecutors on your behalf
- Help you keep or get back your driving privileges
Our Legal Defense Process for DUI/DWI Convictions:
First, we create a personal file specifically designed for you and your case. This file contains all the information gathered during our initial consultation and a continuing record of the progress of your case, allowing us to serve you at an optimal level.
If needed, we draft several motions that are filed quickly on your behalf, including a notice of appearance, a notice of our defense, and a motion for discovery.
As we are working on your case, we get in touch with the assigned prosecutor and begin negotiations pertaining to a potential plea offer.
Once we acquire all the necessary information, we sit down together and review the progress made on your case and what the best course of action may be. Deciding on how to move forward is often a tough decision – that is why Edwards & Petersen | PLC believes in providing you with a flat fee.
