San Diego Pride and DUIs
Alexis L. Scott and Anthony J. Solare are Criminal Defense Attorneys in San Diego County servicing all of Southern California
You’ve just been through one of the worst nights of your life. It started out great, drinks with some friends celebrating a momentous year of equality, then dancing in the streets and clubs with a couple cocktails. Spread out over the course of the evening, you never felt more than a little bit relaxed after a long workweek. As you leave Hillcrest, you’re pulled over, not believing at first the officer wanted to stop YOU, having no idea what you did wrong. To make a long story short, you’re even more astonished when your breath test result is .10%, clearly above the legal limit. Now what? Hire a trusted and known DUI Defense Attorney.
If you’re like the vast majority of our clients, you’ve never been arrested before and have no idea where to begin. You’ve already talked to your neighbor who told you, “There’s nothing that an attorney can do, just go to court and take your lumps!” Putting aside the poor practice of getting legal advice from your neighbor, there is something to that proposition. The answer to the bottom line question rests on three primary factors: your priorities, the facts of your case and cost.
The prospects of a criminal conviction and loss of one’s driving privileges are serious consequences for any responsible adult. (If you disagree, please contact us immediately so that we can enroll you in our “Frequent Flyer” program!) There is a significant value in having an experienced DUI attorney carefully review your case to determine if there are any issues that could significantly change the outcome. Even if there are not, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have done all that you can to minimize the damage.
Obviously, the facts of your case will have a great deal to do with how the case will resolve. It is important to realize that DUI’s actually more complicated than most people realize. There can be technical issues that would completely escape anyone but an attorney who is well-trained and experienced in handling DUI’s, even other lawyers. The crux of the matter is that doing the careful review noted above is a big part of our job! The question, then, boils down to is it worth the cost?
We at Solare & Scott are well aware that no one is every happy to be in our offices and is even less enthusiastic about writing a check. That’s why is has always been important to us to set our fee structure at a very reasonable rate, especially given my partner’s Anthony Solare’s vast experience with DUI’s. I partnered with Mr. Solare over 7 years ago. He has done more than a 100 jury trials, have handled literally 1000′s of DUI cases, is a former prosecutor, and is one of the most experienced DUI Defense Attorneys in San Diego. So if you or someone you know is facing this issue, call us today for a free consultation. You’ll be glad that you did.
