No matter the occasion that you are celebrating with family and friends, you never want the evening to end with a DUI. And we are sure you would never want to end up sitting in a patrol car with your final destination being a jail cell over an Uber or Lyft ride that would leave you a few feet from your front door or hotel entrance after a fun night on River Street in downtown Savannah.
At the law offices of Jarrett Maillet J.D., P.C., we’ve sat down with countless clients who ended up in that predicament after flying down to Savannah for a bachelor weekend, the ever-popular St. Patrick’s Day festivities or even a local celebrating a promotion. And do you know what they all have in common? Each of their evenings have ended the same way – with a DUI charge.
Fortunately, with years of experience handling many DUI cases, our Savannah DUI defense attorneys have seen it all and are prepared to take on even the most challenging of cases.
Reason #1: We’ll stand by you.
From the moment you contact us for a consultation, our DUI lawyers will stand by you and represent you as your case transitions into the court process and will show up at your DMV hearing to defend you against a suspension of your driver’s license. In many instances, one of our firm’s attorneys can and will appear before the judge on your behalf to save you time and also help you save face.
Reason #2: We keep you in the loop.
Whether it is your first, second or third DUI, our Savannah DUI attorneys develop and execute a defense strategy to get you the best possible outcome. Not just that, we believe strongly in keeping the lines of communication with our clients open. The last thing we would want is for you to be in the dark about what we are planning to do and when we are aiming to execute those plans of action. After all, your livelihood is being affected and we definitely do not want you to feel anxious and unsupported.
Reason #3: The Numbers Speak for Themselves
In a recent survey by Martindale-Nolo Research, people who hired private DUI Lawyers have had their DUI charges dismissed by a large margin. Furthermore, 22% of those who hired private attorneys were able to plea bargain for lesser, non-DUI related offenses such as reckless driving and impaired driving. Only 7% of public-defender clients and 0% of self-represented defendants ended up with those pleas attained by the private lawyers. As you can see, hiring a competent lawyer can be the difference between a favorable outcome and an unsavory one.
Reason #4: We know DUI Law Exceptionally Well
With laws changing quite often, it is imperative that you hire a DUI attorney who is well-versed in the latest concerning DUI Law. If you are not familiar with DUI Less Safe laws, which are not the same as a regular DUI, for instance, one of our DUI attorneys can walk you through what that type of charge means to you as it pertains to the law and what the next steps would be. Essentially, our first step in your defense is to examine the circumstances surrounding your arrest in order to build a strong defense for your case.The same would apply for felony DUI and DUI Drug charges. Ultimately, we make sure we know everything we need to know about sobriety checkpoints, lookback periods, DRR convictions and so much more.
