Protecting Driving Privileges
One of the main benefits of a West Palm Beach DUI defense lawyer is we could help protect driving privileges. There are methods we could use to challenge a suspension of your license. The first thing we want to do is make sure that your driver’s license is reinstated.
To stand up for your rights with the driver’s license office, we could enforce and effectuate your rights to have a driver’s license, whether it is a work permit or a full license
Negotiating with Prosecutors
Just because you were arrested does not mean you will be prosecuted. A DUI lawyer could contact the state attorney’s office or the prosecutor’s office and try to convince them not to take any action on the case because we are going to fight it, there is not enough evidence, and they will lose. If we are not able to convince them to stop the charges or not file the charges, we could try to keep the penalties down to the minimum and even perhaps get the charges reduced.
Attorney’s Role in Court
A DUI lawyer could stand up for your rights in court. We could make sure that all the evidence is reviewed, all the procedures are followed, and any error in the case is examined and taken advantage of.
If the police officers make a mistake either in policy, procedure, or law, the remedy is often to get the case Dismissed.
Importance of Hiring a Local DUI Lawyer
The law is black and white, one can pull out a book or do some research on a computer and find out what the law says. Most people do not realize, however, that local people both interpret and enforce the law.
Police Officers, Prosecutors, and Judges interpret and enforce the law. A person wants a local lawyer to know how these people enforce the law and what their policies, practices, and procedures are. When a person’s lawyer negotiates a resolution, the lawyer should know if they are getting a good deal.
A DUI lawyer who is not from this area does not know the full limits of discretion of the individual prosecutor. Court personnel will not be afraid of a non-local lawyer because they are not aware of their abilities. They are not going to give the non-local lawyer the full benefit of their discretion and the benefit of having a prior working relationship with them.
