We had another change to identify some leverage for a client last week, this time resulting in a plea bargain which permitted our client to get a reduction on his DUI charge.
Finding the right objective basis for getting a reduction in a DUI case is getting harder these days, and we were encouraged that we were able to get it done - and that we got it done with the agreement of the prosecution.
Given what the DUI conviction would have done to the occupation of the defendant, this one time mistake (and we mean "one time") by the client was extremely important to him.
I am sure the client would be the first to tell anyone not to get into the same trouble he temporarily found himself in. He had really learned a valuable lesson from the whole experience.
