The Right to Counsel in DUI Cases

Finding a DUI attorney to represent you in court is the most important decision you will make. You must be aware that not all DUI/DWI attorneys are specialists in dismissing all DUI charges. If you plan on using a DUI lawyer who is not a DUI specialist then your chances of beating your DUI are extremely low. You will quickly find out that you have wasted thousands of dollars on an expensive lawyer that gets you supervision when a DUI Rights attorney can get it dismissed.

What You Should Know About Your Right to an Attorney

The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution outlines a criminal defendant’s right to an attorney. This amendment requires that all accused individuals have the “assistance of counsel” during any criminal prosecution, meaning a defendant has the right to be represented by an attorney during his or her trial. Additionally, this amendment outlines that if the offender cannot afford legal representation, the government is required to appoint a legal professional to handle the defendant’s case.

Since this is true for all criminal prosecutions, individuals also have a right to counsel in Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases. Additionally, defendants have a right to counsel during all phases of their case, from when they are arrested to any appeals if they are convicted of any charges. For example, a suspect has the right to request counsel and refuse to answer any law enforcement questions when he or she is being interrogated during the open phases of any criminal case.

How an Attorney Assists an Offender in a DUI Criminal Case

The role of an attorney is very important in any and all criminal cases. This is especially true for those cases that have the possibility of the defendant facing jail time since it is difficult to put a price on someone’s freedom. While the specific duties of an attorney vary greatly from one case to the next, based heavily on the circumstances of the defendant’s case, there are some key responsibilities that any criminal defense lawyer needs to take on, including but not limited to the following:

  • Advising the defendant of his or her rights
  • Explaining to the defendant what to expect during the criminal process
  • Ensuring the defendant’s rights are not violated during the criminal process
  • Negotiating and explaining a plea bargain for the defendant
  • Investigating the facts of the defendant’s case
  • Presenting legal defenses
  • Cross-examining witnesses
  • Objecting to any improper lines of questioning

Standards for DUI Defense Attorneys

The Sixth Amendment has been interpreted in a manner that the “right to counsel” includes the “effective assistance” of an attorney. This means that attorneys are instructed to defend their client to the best of their abilities regardless if the client hired the legal professional or if the professional was appointed to the client by the government. It’s important to note, however, that serious legal errors or debatable strategic choices on behalf of the attorney does not mean the client’s case is automatically dismissed.

  1. What if you started your car with a remote start on arguably the coldest night of the year just to stay warm while you waited for an uber, keys not on me or in the ignition but hidden inside the vehicle. I also have a personal breathalyzer that I wouldve used if I thought I was close to leagal limit (which I knew wasnt the case) I had previously talked with these same police officers prior to this happening explaining that I was going to call an uber that I would not be driving my vehicle home this night. (This after an altercation across the street at McCabe’ s where I was not allowed to reenter to obtain personal property of mine. An expensive pool stick which was never returned to me) Upon leaving the old main pub as soon as I opened the driver door and sat down the same exact police officer and what looked to be about half of the police force on duty that night came and arrested me. The same police officer I talked to previously handcuffed me and said I should’ve called an uber like I said I was gonna do. I wasn’t given any kind of sobriety test at this point. It was clearly obvious that these police officers were watching my vehicle and waiting for me to leave a different bar which they watched me walk into where I play pool on an APA pool league on Tuesday nights at the old main pub directly aross the street from McCabe’s. At least 15 police came from everywhere as they had been waiting for me to go back to my truck, entrapping me which I’m pretty sure is illegal. (I’m sure they had at least 4 dash cams going at the time to prove just how much of an entrapment it really was. The truck had been started by remote as I walked to the truck, however was not operational as there were no keys in the iginition or on my person. The truck would automatically shut off if I applied brake to put the truck in gear. Thus the vehicle is non operational. It was only started so that I could stay warm as the bars were shutting down. These police officers also searched my truck and found one cannabis cigarette inside with no probable cause to search the vehicle. They said they smelled marijuana which is untrue because I never smoke marjuanna in my truck and the cannabis cigarette was inside a smell proof container.
