Defending a DUI involves many different areas of knowledge. It starts with getting to know the client and caring about the client as a human being. Once the lawyer takes the time to do that they then get motivated to fight for the client. The lawyer must leave no stone unturned in building the defense case. Ares of investigation include the breath testing device records, the police report, and careful scrutiny of any available video or other electronic records. After putting together a game plan for the defense the lawyer then negotiates with the prosecutor for a reduction, and if need be fights the case through motions and trial.
