Start the year with a good DUI defense

The start of a brand-new year in Fort Myers is often when people say goodbye to bad habits and start anew. There is nothing wrong with celebrating the opportunity to start over with a party. But when alcohol and driving are also involved, the beginning of a new year could mean fighting a DUI charge

You may find yourself enjoying some extra days off from work, with more time on your hands to sip on your favorite alcoholic beverages. There is also the possibility that you will consume more alcohol than you normally do because you have friends and relatives who are still visiting from out of town. The last thing you want is to have a fresh criminal conviction on your record. If you end up with a DUI charge, ignoring it will not make it go away. 

DUIs are not DIYs 

You may think there is nothing you can do about your situation until your court date. Because you might not be familiar with the criminal justice system and how it handles DUI cases, you should not attempt to resolve it on your own. You should also consider how having a private DUI defense attorney can help over having a public defender. There are many loopholes and pitfalls that you may encounter that could improve your situation, or make it much worse. 

A criminal defense attorney is well-versed in defense strategies such as entrapment, mistake of fact, improper stop or procedure, or breath test inaccuracy. Much of your strategy will depend on the prosecution's interpretation of the evidence, argument and presentation, and a DUI attorney will know how to anticipate and counter these effectively. Speaking to an attorney who offers a free initial consultation may be the first step to prevent your new year from getting off to a costly beginning.
