Initial Interview With Your Sacramento DUI Attorney

Sacramento DUI attorney At the initial meeting with your Sacramento DUI attorney, you will need to be prepared to provide pertinent information regarding your DUI arrest. Below is a brief discussion of some of the information you should be prepared to provide your attorney.

Statements or Admissions

It is important for you to let your attorney know if you gave any statements or made any admissions to the arresting officer. This is especially important if you made any statements or admissions with respect to how much alcohol you consumed, when you consumed the alcohol, and whether you were driving.


You also need to inform your attorney if anyone witnessed you driving. This is important because without sufficient proof that you were operating a vehicle, the prosecution does not have a successful DUI case against you.

Other Information

Other information that your Sacramento DUI attorney will need you to provide during your initial interview includes:

  • You overall health condition at the time of your arrest
  • Whether you have any physical or mental issues
  • Whether you have any sort of disability that will affect your ability to operate a vehicle
  • How much sleep you had at least 2 days prior to your DUI arrest
  • Whether you were taking any medication at the time of your arrest
  • Whether the arresting officer administered a field sobriety test

Client Reviews
“Mr. Pabla represented me with my DUI case. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed. Mr. Pabla made sure I understood the process and my rights. He eased my mind through a very stressful situation. I highly recommend Mr. Pabla.” Gurpreet
“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!" Boris
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
