Chico Choosing a DUI Attorney to Represent Your Case Lawyer


Being faced with a DUI offense can be a frightening ordeal. Recent laws have aggravated the situation by making DUI an even harsher reality —jail time is mandatory, even for first-time offenders. Additionally, the severity of DUI law has become complicated by numerous details and particulars that only a qualified attorney knows about.

The question covered in this article is how to be sure you are getting the best representation possible in your area. The following are a few important considerations to refer to if the worst should happen and you are faced with a DUI citation in Chico California.

First and foremost, it is essential that the attorney you choose to handle your case is well versed in the particulars of DUI charges. It may sound obvious, but many attorneys claim to handle DUI but are not as versed as they should be — the superior perspective of a DUI Attorney often reveals things that can turn the case around.


Additionally, DUI law is often updated, and only those truly dedicated to staying abreast with the revisions will truly give you a fighting chance.

It is always best to select a DUI attorney who has familiarity practicing in the location you are arrested in. At the very least the attorney should have experience in the area. This means that the judge and prosecutors will not be new to them.

The attorney handling your case should have extensive experience in handling DUI charges and trials. Hiring an amateur can mean your case is not getting the full representation it should. Ask this lawyer if they are aware of all the psychological and scientific aspects about the case.

It is a good idea that you get all your answers about costs and fees up front. Some professionals work off an hourly system when billing their clients while others prefer the fixed fee; you should certainly discuss this with your lawyer before signing them up. Remember that an attorney is charging you a surprisingly low fee may be compensating for a lack of experience.  

Finally, when choosing a good attorney to handle your case, getting referrals can avoid a lot of the uncertainty of from the case. If you know someone who has had experience in the DUI legal world, ask them for their attorney’s number. If they have had success before then, you have an idea of what you can expect from them.

Client Testimonials
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
