Have A DWI Charge. Which One Describes Your Situation?


No two cases are the same. When a person is stopped for suspicion of  driving under the influence, DWI, there might be other circumstances that will apply only to that person's particular situation. Examples:

*Driving without a license
*Refusing to take the test
*Caused a bad accident
*Resisted arrest
*Assaulted the Police Officer (s)
And more

That is why when a friend tells you that his case went very well and had to serve no jail time, it would be best to try to get more details of his case and compare it to yours. The reason being is that some clients, after getting a less satisfactory result but one that might have been an excellent one considering the circumstances of his case, compares it to the friend that had a simple DWI, DUI and with a very low alcohol content.

An example of this is if a person has a high blood alcohol content, fights the police officers resisting arrest and refused to take the test, he cannot expect to go to court and get his DWI easily dismissed or not get any jail time even if it is the first offense.  No matter how good the outcome was, considering that the person was being accused of committing all these offenses (and officer had prove) at the same time and ended up serving just the minimum time that was required because of the blood alcohol content, that client might not be satisfied with the attorney that worked so hard to convince the police officers and prosecutors to forgive the resisting arrest and assault of  the police officer(s). The client's friend will probably give his expert advice and tell him "why did you have to serve 5 days in jail if this was only your first offense? Your attorney didn't do anything for you".

The attorneys at Salvado, Salvado & Salvado, and surely any good attorneys, try very hard to find a way to get the charge dismissed. However, finding a defense is not always possible. Prosecutors, Judges and Police Officers are not inclined to let a person suspected of driving under the influence go so easy no matter who that person is, no matter how much he has spent in his defense or whatever the situation may be. They do no want to be held responsible for any possible future offense that person might commit. If there is a possible defense, the attorney will review it with the client and then the client will decide weather to go to trial or accept a guilty plea.
