Sometimes people wonder if it is really worth the money and time to hire their own DUI lawyers. Vista legal representatives are always worth the money and their value cannot be overstated. That’s because if you are found not guilty, you will not only save money by not having to pay the legal fines associated with your charges, but you will also be able to avoid taking, and paying for, alcohol treatment programs and paying increased insurance premiums after your license suspension is over. All things said and done, it’s a lot cheaper to pay for experienced and skilled DUI lawyers than it is to be found guilty of driving under the influence.
While your lawyer cannot guarantee you will be found not guilty, he can do everything in his power to help fight the charges, including filing pre-trial motions to have evidence, including the results of your blood/breath test, any statements you made to the arresting officer and your field sobriety test results, withheld from the trial. There are many different motions to have these pieces of evidence declared inadmissible in the courtroom trial and Peter M. Liss will closely examine your case to see how to best fight the evidence against you from ever being entered as proof of your guilt during the trial. The most common motion is a motion to suppress the evidence because of the traffic stop, detention or arrest were performed illegally. The arresting officer testifies at a hearing, so even if you don’t win the motion, you will hear what his trial testimony would be like at the official trial.
