We are living in truly unprecedented times. Things around us have changed so fast and created more challenges that we will have to deal with in the future.
Avoid the Rush
Right now the courts are closed for all but emergencies but when they do open, there will be a bug rush to work through the backlog of cases. At that time, many clients will be hiring attorneys and the better and more experienced trial lawyers may have too many cases and may not be able to take yours. That may leave you being forced to hire an inexperienced attorney who may not be able to defend your case well.
More time for us to prepare
Experienced Trial Lawyers need time to prepare your case. We investigate and pick apart the details to find ways to challenge the case against you. OUI cases involve a lot of science and procedural law and sometimes we may need to research and prepare lengthy documents and motions. Also sometimes evidence such surveillance videos and witness testimony may be harder to collect if you delay.
Questions about Police work
In these unprecedented times, police officers have had to change some of their procedures and the way they do things. A number of challenges may arise as to whether or not the investigation and police work was indeed valid. Again, the earlier you hire an attorney, the more chance they have to dig deep and make your case even stronger.
You don’t need this impacting your future
We don’t know what the economy will be like in the coming months. Millions of Americans are unemployed and when things open back up, the job market will be very competitive. Having an OUI conviction on your record or not being able to drive will set you back even further. Think about it from an employer’s point of view, if you have two similar candidates and one can’t drive and has a recent OUI conviction, who do you think they will hire? This is why it is important to make an investment into protecting your future.
To give you peace of mind
You certainly have a lot on your mind right now. We all do. But right now, a criminal case should not be one of them. By hiring the right attorney now, you can get this off your mind and focus on staying safe and healthy.
