If you have been charged with DUI, you may be overwhelmed by the seriousness of the situation. It could feel like your life as you know it is over – even though that is almost certainly not the case. In fact, it’s possible to get DUI charges dropped in some situations, meaning you might not even end up facing these charges at all. Of course, you can’t assume that it will be easy to have DUI charges dropped – rather, you need to work hard to prepare a strong defense and work with an experienced attorney who can guide you through this process.
Every Case is Unique
The charge of DUI is not an unusual one, but every case has its own story. So, if you are hoping to have DUI charges dropped, you’ll need to work together with your representation to highlight the issues with the case against you. There are nearly endless possibilities here, which again points to the importance of working with an experienced attorney who has handled many other DUI cases. All that experience will allow your attorney to look to the common issues with DUI cases in an effort to have your charges dropped.
Problems with Plea Deals
Many DUI cases end in plea deals. And to be sure, that can be the right choice for a defendant in plenty of situations. But agreeing to a plea does come with downsides. You are sure to be accepting at least some form of punishment, and that punishment could have an effect on your day-to-day life. It would be much better to have the charges dropped entirely, so you can avoid a plea and leave this entire incident behind you. Ultimately, you’ll need to work with your attorney to decide if a plea is the right decision, but don’t rush to that conclusion before considering all possibilities.
