Winning DUI cases for our clients

Even now, months after our victory in an Anne Arundel manslaughter case, fellow lawyers approach us and ask how we were able to be victorious against the Government in what appeared to be a strong case against the Defendant. In fact, the prosecutor is still scratching his head and wondering the same thing. The answer, as is typically the case is meticulous preparation that goes well beyond the case itself.

Our attorneys go beyond the normal reading of the facts, investigation, preparation and presentation to a judge or jury. We routinely and consistently attend seminars by the Nations leading trial attorneys in order to uncover the latest trial techniques and strategies to put the Government to the task of proving its case. Unfortunately, for the DUI/Criminal defendant, the deck is always stacked against the accused because the Government has endless resources to secure their ends (a conviction) and most jurors walk into the court room with a bias against the accused which the defense must overcome in order to secure, at a minimum, a level playing field.

In order to overcome jury bias and the state's relentless resources, we understand that the defense must work that much harder to prove our client's innocence, just as we did in the above noted manslaughter case. We are proud to inform our clients that at Robinson and Associates, we read and study the treatises from the greatest trial advocates of our time, we seek them out and listen to them speak all over the country, and we bring that knowledge and skill to bear for our clients in Maryland. The picture embedded herein is none other than myself with F. Lee Bailey, speaking at a recent seminar on behalf of the National College for DUI Defense Attorneys.

Picking the right DUI Lawyer after Arrest

These are difficult economic times; because of that fact many people are out of work as companies lay off and down size. Law firms and lawyers are not immune from the economic downtown caused by too many ridiculous wars that we should not be in, crashing realestate values, greedy wall street investors who don't give a damn about anything, president Bush endless spending and the like.

As for lawyers, many of the commercial, realestate, transactional, and domestic guys have felt the economic crunch and determined that they need to practice in other areas in order to keep the lights on. This national transition of lawyers into the field of DUI defense comes at a price to weary DUI Defendants. That is, there are too many DUI advertisers on line these days and unless a DUI Defendant takes the time to really research who the top dogs in the field are, they can end up hiring the wrong DUI lawyer resulting in long lasting negative consequences to them and their family.

At Bruce Robinson & Associates (mddwi.com), we are inundated by calls and queries on a weekly basis seeking quality DUI representation. We are privileged to represent the best of the best, starting at the White House in Washington DC and going down through the covert Federal Agencies, Federal Judge's kids, other lawyers and judges, doctors, etc. The unpleasant part is when clients routinely call us having gotten bad and incorrect advice from another lawyer. Flat out wrong advice on how to handle their case. We then have to fix the advice, turn the client's mind set around and work back up from there. The other concern is while we patch up a lot of crappy advice, what about all the other DUI Defendants who hire the first lawyer they speak with that charges a fraction of what should be charged and send clients down the river with no paddle because the lawyer has little idea what they are doing.
