1. What is your experience with DUI Defense?
We all know that experience is everything. A seasoned DUI attorney must have extensive experience in dealing with the DMV as well as being comfortable in the courtroom going up against tough prosecutors and judges, which is what we do every single day.
2. Are you the attorney that will be representing me in the courtroom?
Unlike a lot of other DUI law firms in California, when you hire the DUI MAN, you get the DUI MAN and my senior DUI defense attorney. You will never have some brand new associate fresh out of law school show up on your case. We will be in court for ALL your substantive appearances. Together we will work tirelessly on writing your pre-trial motions, arguing them, handling your trial, your DMV hearings, getting your fines reduced, and everything else. Make certain that the lawyer you consult with and hire to defend your case is the lawyer you get.
3. Do you only do DUI Cases?
I have said it before and I will say it again. You don’t want a jack of all trades and a master of none. This is your life, your driving privileges, your job and your criminal record… You deserve to have an attorney who is a master of DUI Defense, who does nothing but get DUI charges in California reduced or dropped! Our recent DUI victories and case results speak to this.
4. Are there any hidden fees?
Make sure that you know about all potential costs and fees for your case going into it. The worst thing that can happen is that you are held ransom by your lawyer because of hidden or unexpected fees. The last thing you want is to find out that your lawyer is not prepared to go forward with your case because of additional or unexpected costs that you cannot afford.
5. When can I expect to hear from you as the case progresses?
The complaint I hear most often is that the lawyer is not responsive to the client. Often clients tell me that the lawyer never calls back, doesn’t answer their questions etc. This is your life, it is a serious matter and it should be regarded as such. Make sure the attorney you hire firmly commits to being responsive to you as a client , while handling your matter.
