Lawrence Taylor (retired) explains what investigation is necessary for a successful DUI defense and all the factors that go into determining the ultimate fate of a person charged with DUI. Every case is different and every case is unique. There is a lot of information and an extensive investigation that is required of a DUI defense attorney in representing a DUI defendant. Any attorney that makes a prediction without doing any type of investigation and without knowing all the essential facts of a client’s case should not be retained as counsel. A DUI defense attorney should reexamine everything that they possibly can. From the blood test being reanalyzed by their own lab, to reviewing possible videotape of the jail cell where the DUI defendant was being held, to tracking the route taken by the arresting officer before they pulled over the defendant in question. No stone should be left unturned. Not only is investigation a factor, but the reputation and skill of the DUI attorney also contribute to the possible fate of the DUI defendant. The more reputable and skillful the DUI attorney is, the more likely it is that the DA will be more willing to offer a favorable plea bargain to the DUI defendant. That is why it is of the utmost importance that a DUI defendant hires an attorney who specializes in DUI defense.
