Whether this is your first time being arrested or if you have struggled with driving under the influence in the past or have had other issues with the law, a good lawyer should be able to make sure that your rights are upheld. It does not matter whether you think that you deserve your DUI charge or not, you are still supposed to be provided with protections and should not be penalized outside of the law.
An unfortunate reality is that many people are convicted for a DUI when they should not have been. There can be different reasons for this but police and other law enforcement errors and misjudgements are often the reason for the accused to be wrongfully convicted of a DUI. One example of this is DUI checkpoints. These are supposed to be administered under strict guidelines but often they are run more loosely than what protocol calls for. In many states, officers are not supposed to randomly pick drivers who they want to test, rather they are supposed to only ask every third driver (or whatever the pre prescribed number it is) to step out of their car, etc. Another example of this is that to pull someone over for a DUI, an officer is supposed to have just cause to suspect that the person is driving under the influence. If a driver gets pulled over for having a missing tail light, they should not be treated as a drunk driving suspect simply because of the broken tail light. The unfortunate reality is that these things happen.
These and many other reasons are ones that many people benefit from having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney on their side. For a DUI lawyer Montgomery MD community members are fortunate to have available to them, contact Cohen & Cohen, today.
