Fourth of July is now behind us, but if you are among the many drivers across Southern California arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol this past weekend, chances are you’re thinking about your future – and your next move.
As a popular holiday for celebration and drinking, the Fourth of July and the days preceding and following the holiday sees a sharp increase in DUI arrests. This is because law enforcement officers across the region ramp up efforts to conduct more saturation patrols and checkpoints. This past weekend, those efforts paid off with numerous DUI arrests.
Although officers make more DUI arrests during this time, it does not mean that every arrest means a driver was too impaired to drive – nor does it mean every driver is guilty. Remember, you have the right to defend yourself and challenge the government’s case against you. An experienced lawyer can help you exercise this right to produce the best possible results.
At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc., our attorneys have spent collective decades representing clients charged with various DUI offenses, including DUIs that occurred during holidays and periods of increased enforcement. During these times, officers can become overzealous in their efforts to boost arrest numbers, and may make a number of mistakes – including unlawful stops or searches.
As DUI attorneys, it’s our job to investigate all circumstances surrounding a stop and arrest in order to fight charges and the penalties they carry. Our goal is to produce the best result possible in a given situation – whether that means a dismissal or reduction of charges or penalties.
Our firm is committed to fighting on behalf of clients facing DUI charges throughout Orange County and the surrounding areas – and we encourage anyone who has been charged this past weekend to take immediate action and contact our firm as soon as possible. Remember, you only have 10 days to protect your license.
