Strategic Planning Pays Off

For many DUI defendants, the decision to take a plea or fight the charge is just one aspect of an overall successful defense strategy 

For example, a Michigan client came to us with a Zero Tolerance DUI charge (i.e., operating a vehicle while intoxicated and under the age of 21). Luckily, we were able to secure a favorable plea deal through effective negotiations with the prosecutor. But our job did not end there.Often, a defendant may simply enter the sentencing phase of the process without any additional preparation. This is a mistake. Instead, we advised our client to undergo an independent drug and alcohol analysis, attend MADD Victim Impact Panels, attend AA meetings, and engage in additional community service projects. On top of all this, we met with our client and worked to frame his story in a compelling and sympathetic light for the sentencing hearing. All of our efforts were rewarded, our client was only responsible for paying criminal fines and court costs, but was excused from any probation requirements or additional punishment.
