Convictions for Driving Under the Influence, or DUIs, can have a significant impact on the ability of people to go about their lives. This is particularly problematic for students and other people who may have fewer secondary options for moving around and reaching their destination. Additional problems, such as charges of drug possession while a student, can have a disproportionate impact on future activities by restricting financial aid and other elements that are often necessary for the successful completion of higher education.
Now, the Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin, an active member of the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles County Bar Associations, offers counsel for those charged with any form of DUI in the Southern California area. DUI cases can take a variety of forms, each of which has a significant impact on how the case will proceed. These situations include first-time DUI arrests, which may or may not become a felony DUI (depending on the facts of the case), as well as DUI with injuries, the suspension of a driver’s license, hit-and-run situations, and any traffic violations that may have occurred while the defendant may have been under the influence.
As a former prosecutor, Jonathan Franklin is personally experienced with the techniques and methods that are often used in cases where defendants have been charged with a DUI. His efforts as a Los Angeles DUI Attorney operating on both the prosecution and defense side have given him a more complete understanding of how clients can best be represented in each case. This includes searching for details concerning every party involved with the case, such as the officer making the arrest, and how this person may have been acting improperly. Even if all personnel involved fully followed all aspects of the protocol, mechanical errors may have caused a false positive reading.
Whether or not any of this occurred, the Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin can provide professional legal advice and help to minimize any adverse effects that may result from the arrest. In some circumstances, it may be better to negotiate a plea deal rather than go to trial; if this occurs, Jonathan Franklin and his staff can help negotiate for reduced penalties rather than simply accepting what the prosecutors suggest.
DUI arrests can happen at any time of the day, so the Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney offices of Jonathan Franklin are staffed 24/7 and offer a free consultation for examining individual cases to determine whether or not the services of a defense attorney are the most appropriate course of action.
