A: The merits of your case and your ability to "beat" the charge depends entirely on the specific facts of your case. It is unlikely anyone on the internet can give you any advice in this regard without additional information, which you should not share online. The only sure way you'll be in a position to successfully challenge the charges against you is to retain local counsel who is familiar with your state's DUI laws, court procedures, and local customs of the prosecutor. Don't wait to retain counsel if you haven't yet. The attorney you hire will be the best person to give you an assessment of your case. Good luck.

A: Attorney Masso is correct when he says: "The attorney you hire will be the best person to give you an assessment of your case." Hire a local attorney to best protect your rights and evaluate the merits of the case.
