Attorneys Help Make Sense of Legal Complexities

The 2014 California Court Statistics Report says there were just under 6.9 million total criminal filings in the state from 2012-2013. Logically, the majority of these were filed in cities like Los Angeles, where the population density is high.

What does this mean for LA residents?
Since the court system in California is so choked, a person's life can be unduly put “on hold.” The recent court statistics report also states that 89% of all felonies were disposed of within a period of 12 months.

Given the economic implications of a felony, it is absolutely necessary for defendants to have access to quality legal representation. For instance, fighting a first or second DUI costs an average of $12,000. With the help of an experienced DUI defense attorney, one’s case can be resolved with the lightest penalties possible.

Among other things, an attorney will prepare a strong case by gathering the necessary evidence and identifying potential weaknesses in the case to help bolster your defense, not to mention walking you through all the steps involved. You can also count on your attorney to aggressively defend you in court and at DMV hearings to help prevent the loss your driving privileges and enable you to get back on your feet.
