Our goal in defending you is to have the charges against you dismissed, or at the minimum reduced, and your drivers license returned. We will begin your defense immediately by obtaining ALL records of the case. We will request ALL audio and video recordings of your arrest from the Police Department. We will investigate the Police Officer involved. We will begin preparing your case for trial. We will investigate the location of your arrest. Our investigation of your arrest is the best and most thorough available.
What you can expect:
When you contact our office, whether it be by phone call, by email, or by submitting the FREE Evaluation, you will be treated with respect and consideration. We value you as our client.
During your initial interview:
We will discuss the facts of your case and what they can mean to you. You will be able to ask the questions YOU want answered. You will be in a position to inform us of what you feel is important. And, you will be asked several questions about your arrest, so that we can become inform to the circumstances involved in your arrest. We ask that you bring any and all paperwork with you to this first appointment. It takes our trained eye to see any holes in the State’s case. This initial interview will last about one hour and is entirely free to you. Remember …, just because you were arrested does not mean you are convicted of Oklahoma DUI. Once the client retains us, we immediately start all the processes to obtain any video of you at the time of arrest OR booking, any police reports or police notes, and take the proper action to stop the DPS from revoking your driver’s license! We then start the formulation of the defense of your case and putting the Government to the task of showing that they can PROVE what they allege!
Your first court appearance:
This date is set by the Oklahoma Court where your case is filed. This may be an Oklahoma Municipal Court or, an Oklahoma County District Court. Depending on what court is involved you may be required to attend this arraignment, or initial appearance. We will advise you during our first appointment if it will be necessary for you to be present. There are almost always additional appearances that will be required by either office OR you. Any time that you are required to be in Court, we will advise you AND will ALWAYS be with you in that court appearance! You will never have to make a court appearance by yourself once our office is retained to represent you!
Your case at the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety:
If we are hired to handle your case, we will file all necessary requests for you at the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety to STOP this agency from revoking your license. We will request a temporary license for you to use until it is determined if your license will be suspended. Of course, we will FIGHT them with every possible legal attack to avoid this revocation, and we have had significant success in doing that for our clients. It is hoped that we will win the hearing at the DPS, and your license will NOT be suspended. If after the hearing at the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety it is determined that your license will be suspended, we will request that a District Court Judge hear your driver’s license case. It is here that we will request a “Work Permit”, if you would otherwise qualify.
