"How can you defend people accused of a California DUI?" a common attorney question

"How can you defend people accused of a California DUI?" lawyers are often asked.  In California DUI cases, there are many extra strong or unfair legislative penalties vigorously lobbied by questionable organizations such as MADD, remind San Diego California DUI attorneys.  That could be motivation alone for a San Diego California DUI lawyer.

A number of people are wrongfully assumed to be drunk or DUI, prosecuted and convicted.  A good California DUI attorney is there to question the prosecution's case, analyze the evidence, offer a defense and zealously represent.  Otherwise, many more wrongful drunk driving or California DUI convictions could happen.

Although a California DUI prosecuting attorney must prove a driver was DUI beyond a reasonable doubt, many people are convicted that perhaps should not be.

The California DUI and DMV system of "justice" raises many eyebrows.  Every person accused of a California DUI should be prepared to retain a competent California DUI defense attorney.  When you have a strong California DUI defense lawyer, the system works better, folks more easily accept findings of guilty if there must be, and the likelihood of equal justice and due process is enhanced.

Many folks accused of California DUI may have done something wrong as a matter-of-fact but maybe they did something which is not specifically alleged.  People make mistakes and are just human.  People should not be treated too harshly or inhumane in handing down California DUI sentences.

"Strange as it may seem, I grew to like to defend men and women charged with crime...I became vitally interested in the causes of human conduct...I was dealing with life, with its hopes and fears, its aspirations and despairs."  [Clarence Darrow, American Lawyer].

There is humanity in the people facing California DUI charges, no matter what the public perception is.   It is up to California DUI attorneys to find that humanity and present it.
