Most Common DUI Mistake
Defending Rhode Island clients against criminal prosecution
To the same extent that you would not want a pediatrician to perform brain surgery on you, you would no more want to put your future freedom and security in the hands of a general legal practioner when you are confronted with a DWI, DUI, OUI, OVI, or OWI arrest in Rhode Island. A costly attorney who is not experienced is this highly technical branch of the law is unlikely to achieve the best possible results in your case. The mere fact that an attorney has agreed to take your case is no assurance that he/she will be able to defend it successfully. It is a common practice for an expensive general practitioner attorney to take a DUI/DWI case that is entirely winnable on its face and effortlessly plead you out as “guilty” in a plea bargain arrangement that will turn out to be no “bargain” for you at all. They do so primarily because they are not up to the very demanding task of mounting a serious defense on your behalf and would prefer to move on to the next cash-paying client.
For that reason you are infinitely better off retaining a Rhode Island DUI defense attorney team that specializes in this very technical area of the law such as is available to you at The Law Offices of Stefanie A.
