Bad things do happen to good people. When you are injured by someone else in an accident or just because you were arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving, committing a drug crime or other criminal act, it doesn't mean that you have to just let the the situation have its way with you. An experienced personal injury, criminal defense and DUI attorney can protect your rights and freedoms.
In the case of a criminal complaint, the evidence against you might be strong, but does it prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty? Prosecutors almost always overcharge and under deliver on the proof, in the hopes that you won't get a good lawyer. The charges you face can be greatly reduced with the right defense lawyer in your corner.
When you've been injured through no fault of your own you may have the right to a financial settlement that recovers all of your costs including property, medical and pain and suffering. It is important to talk to a lawyer and let your lawyer talk to the insurance company's adjusters who do not have your best interests at heart.
