Giving Up & Pleading Guilty To DUI Charges Is A Bad Decision

I have had clients who have a very hard time going through this. I tell my clients, “Let me worry for you.” That is what I do. That is what I am paid to do. However, it is impossible for most people not to worry about it.

In those situations I tell people, “I do not want to sacrifice better results for a quicker disposition. It is just not worth it.” We talk about it. I explain to them the necessity of holding on for just a little longer until we can get the results we want.

I explain we may get better results by spending more time investigating, doing a motion to suppress, or potentially taking a case to trial. I explain how it will be potentially that much better in the future.

In almost every case where someone just wants to get it over quickly, they will understand after we talk about it. Then, the person lets me do my job.

If someone really wants to get it done and just give up, then that is how it is going to go. Maybe you do not hire a lawyer in the first place. If you do not let us help you, it cannot get any better.
