DUI and DWI
FORMER DUI PROSECUTOR.
Mr. Pelta has experience in felony and misdemeanor DUI drugs and alcohol cases. It is important to not simply hire the person who quotes you the cheapest fee because a criminal conviction is often permanent unless you are fortunate to get it expunged.
Attorneys who are successful in DUI defense must have certain current and specialized training and experience to be most beneficial to clients.
In addition, the attorney needs to be dedicated because DA offices rely on defendants to be scared and plead guilty as early as possible.
Often times. people plead guilty without the assistance of an attorney or will get an attorney from a public defender's office, which may be overwhelmed with cases and may not be able to devote the special time and attention your case may need so you can get your driver license back and end up with the least painful punishment resulting from a DUI conviction, if you cannot get a dry-reckless or a dismissal.
At Pelta Law, Marc and his team are devoted to ensuring that the needs and goals of each client he agrees to represent are met to result in the best possible deal or result.
