4)Avoid a lengthy jail stay -- Although some counties like Placer and San Mateo ask for lengthy jail sentences for first offenders, most first offense DUI cases in California end up getting close to the minimum two days of jail, which can usually served as work-release. However, if there were any aggravating factors such as an accident--even a minor fender-bender--or if the driver was speeding, a longer sentence will be requested by the District Attorney and a DUI Lawyer should be there to help negotiate down the sentence enhancement.5)Beat the charge -- For those who honestly were not drinking...and the bloodshot watery eyes were caused by allergies...the driver and the attorney should go to trial to beat the charge. If the designated driver made a restroom pit stop and left the keys in the ignition so the passenger could listen to the radio...this is when they really need a DUI Lawyer on their side. 6)Work with the DMV -- DUI defendants have only 10 days after an arrest for drunk driving to request a hearing from the DMV or else you will lose important rights forever. Your DUI lawyer can do this for you as well. "Be safe. Use a designated driver," warns Becker. "But if something goes wrong, let me help cure the Saint Patrick's Day DUI hangover. I'll fight hard to keep you employed and facing the minimal possible disruption to your life." Bay Area DUI attorney fees can total up to $10,000 or more, depending on the attorney. Matthew Becker charges a flat rate of $2,500 per case if a settlement is the desired outcome or $3,500 if the right to a jury is desired from the start. This helps drivers limit the costs of the defending themselves in a DUI case.
