DUI charge with enhancements in San Fernando

Question:  I am expecting to be sentenced for a DUI with enhancements in San Fernando Court.  What steps can be taken to lower my sentence?

I’ve had friends mention character letters and neuro-psychiatric evaluations. Can anyone elaborate on these two and offer any other helpful measures for getting the sentence lowered?

I’ve been in rehab and I do have cognitive/psychological conditions (that can be argued to have influenced the car accident in context).  How do I go about requesting a neuro-psych evaluation?

I am not trying to squirm out of taking responsibility for what happened, but I would like to lessen the penalties I face if at all possible.  I know the penalties are probably going to be really serious and and I pretty nervous about it.  You were referred to me by a friend that you handled his case on and he was happy with you, so maybe you can help me too?

Answer:  A DUI attorney would need to know more about your case to better advise. For example, what kind of enhancement or additional charges are at issue here? High BAC level? Children in the car? Prior DUI’s?  DUI(s) with Injury? etc.

Although my website can be helpful for getting some general answers to DUI, Criminal and traffic related matters, it is certainly advisable for you to retain a DUI attorney to assist you and defend your case. Once your DUI attorney has more information, he or she will be in a better position to answer your specific questions, as well as defend your case.

Also, have you already appeared in court on your case, or did the DUI incident just recently occur?

I would be happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss your case in more detail.   I regularly handle DUI cases in San Fernando and with very good results.   This includes handling DUI cases that have additional enhancements.
