Preparing for Court

A DUI conviction has the potential to affect your life for years to come. A criminal record can affect your ability to get a job, secure higher education, and even find a place to live. Additionally, a conviction will usually result in punishments such as heavy fines and potential jail time. As such, if you are facing DUI charges, it is important that you do everything you can to fight a conviction.

These tough consequences can be avoided in some instances, but most people will require experienced legal help to mount a strong defense. Contact Rhode Island DUI defense attorney Matthew Marin at 401-287-4384 to discuss your situation with a dedicated attorney.

How to Prepare For Court

If your DUI case goes to court, you need to present yourself as favorably as possible. Following these tips may help you in your court appearance:

  • Always show respect for the judge and other members of the court
  • Make sure you and your attorney are in agreement regarding your defense
  • Answer questions honestly when asked
  • Make sure you are well dressed and well groomed

How We Can Help

Matthew Marin can help you develop a strong legal defense. Not only can our attorneys help you prepare for your court appearance, but we may also be able to challenge the charges against you if you were wrongfully detained, illegally pulled over, or if the evidence against you is questionable.

If the charges against you cannot be overturned, we may be able to negotiate a lesser sentence to minimize the effect a conviction will have on your life. For instance, some drivers may be able to take alcohol responsibility classes as opposed to receiving a license suspension.
