What Your Sacramento DUI Attorney Will Ask You About Regarding Your Arrest, Health, and Breath Tests

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you may be wondering if a Sacramento DUI attorney will agree to represent you. This depends on the facts and specific circumstances of your case. In your initial interview with a Sacramento DUI attorney, the attorney will probably ask you several questions similar to the below questions. Having the answers ready will be helpful to your attorney.

  • Regarding your arrest, did the police search your car? If so, did he find anything?
  • Was your stop recorded, either on videotape or audiotape?
  • When were you told you were under arrest, and were you read your Miranda rights? Were you handcuffed?
  • Did you say anything and waive your right to remain silent, or did you stay silent? Did you request a lawyer?
  • Your health at the time of your arrest may be important. Were you taking any medication at the time, and how much had you slept the last two nights? Do you have any balance issues or physical disabilities, and have you ever suffered a head injury? Do you have blood or liver disease, or diabetes? And do you have any mental health issues?
  • If you were given a breath test, how many samples did you provide, and did you have any difficulty providing a clean sample? Did the operator interrupt your breathing or tell you to hold your breath before the test? On how many machines were you tested?
  • Do you have an existing criminal record, including drunk driving arrests?

“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
