Hiring a Good Riverside County DUI Lawyer
While each and every DUI arrest in Riverside County is unique in its own way, most DUI cases follow a similar pattern once the criminal legal process begins. Defending a DUI case requires multiple court appearances, beginning with the arraignment (the date on the ticket), followed by pre-trial hearing, and, on some occasions, a jury trial. A good Riverside County DUI Lawyer understands the rules and laws that will have an impact on your DUI case. It is not recommended that you go to court alone without an attorney. If you are unable to afford to hire a lawyer due to unemployment or extreme financial hardship, ask the Judge to appoint the Riverside County Public Defender's Office to represent you. Do not represent yourself in a Riverside County DUI case. If you can afford to hire your own private criminal defense attorney, it is best to retain a lawyer that specializes in defending DUI cases. DUI defense is a specialized area of criminal law that deals with many complex legal and scientific issues. Riverside County DUI Lawyer Robert D. Berglund provides outstanding representation to individuals arrested and facing DUI charges. CONTACT our office today for a free and confidential consultation.
