What Your Sacramento DUI Lawyer Needs to Know

There are a few things that you absolutely must tell your Sacramento DUI lawyer the first time you meet with him.

First, you will need to tell your lawyer if there was anyone who claims to have witnessed you driving the car. In order to convict you of a DUI, the District Attorney will need to prove that it was you who was operating the vehicle at the time of the incident. Your lawyer will need to interview all witnesses as soon as he can.

Second, you will need to tell your DUI lawyer what you said to the police at the time of the arrest. Thinking back to the time of the arrest, did you say anything to the officer that could be construed as an admission of guilt? It is absolutely vital that your lawyer know if you said anything about when it was that you drank, how much you drank, and if you were driving.

You will also need to tell your DUI lawyer about anything that could have affected your performance on a field sobriety test if you took one prior to your arrest. These factors could include, among other things, ongoing medical conditions (e.g. epilepsy, diabetes, or heart disease), sleep deprivation (e.g. all-nighter the night before the arrest), disabilities (e.g. a speech impediment or a chronic balance problem) or any injuries (e.g. a limp from a sprained ankle). You will need to tell your lawyer about any and all medication you were on.

These are just a few of the factor that could make or break your case. If you have been charged with driving under the influence, call Sacramento DUI lawyer Param Pabla today for an evaluation of your case.

“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
