If you’ve been charged with DUI (DUII) and you are planning to go to court alone, and/or your considering a Court Appointed Attorney to represent you, we want to make sure that you know what that looks like.

First thing to know, is that it is not the judges responsibility to look out for the person being accused of a crime. That’s the defense attorneys role. And if you show up in court without an attorney you could be sending a message to the judge that you are not taking this matter seriously.

Second, there are some fantastic public defenders. And, one of the most common complaints that we hear is that the volume of cases doesn’t allow the court appointed attorney to spend as much time as they would like on their cases. Reynolds Defense Firm Attorneys are responsible for a much smaller caseload.  What this means to you is that your RDF attorney has the time to take care of you, the time to think through the best outcomes based on your needs and priorities, the time to get to know you personally so he/she knows what’s most important to you.

So choosing not just any firm, but the right firm to represent you on your case is extremely important. And we believe that the Reynolds Defense Firm is the best option for you.

Watch our video, below, for more important information to consider before you go to court alone.
