If you retain a criminal defense law firm to represent you when you are arrested for a DUI you do not have to appear in court
If you have been arrested for a DUI you should have been given a citation by the police officer indicating the date of your initial court appearance. You would have signed a document promising the court that you would appear in court for your arraignment. However, in California the law permits your lawyer to appear in court without you having to appear for your first court appearance. In almost all DUI cases your lawyer can continue to appear on your behalf and you can go to work or school or go about your life without wasting hours in court.
What this means is that you likely will never have to appear in court. The only time you would have to appear in court is for your jury trial if the case does not resolve. However, Wallin and Klarich has such an outstanding record receiving positive results for our clients that only about 1% of all of the DUI cases we handle go to trial. What this means is there is a 99% chance you will not have to appear in court and that we can successfully conclude your case without the time, expense and “risk” of a jury trial.
If you want to save your California Driver’s License from a California DMV license suspension, avoid jail time, and begin the process of fighting your DUI, call Wallin & Klarich at (888) 749-0034 and visit our website: www.wklawdui.com. We will be there when you call.
