Plea Bargain or Trial?
When facing a DUI offense you have a few different options to choose from. To help you make the best decision for your particular case, Dallas DUI Attorney, Carl David Ceder will go over different options while guiding you through the entire legal process.
If you are thinking about taking a plea bargain, there are some factors that you should consider beforehand. For instance, if someone else was involved in an accident or if they were injured during your arrest, the charges can become even more serious.

It can be handled by an individual who may decide to take a plea bargain to avoid being convicted in a court of law. Our firm, the Dallas DUI Attorney may be able to get the charges in your case reduced for reckless driving instead. Ultimately it is your decision whether you decide to enter a plea bargain or not.

While in court, your attorney can bring up inconsistent issues found with the goal of getting your charges reduced. If the prosecution agrees with your claims, the charges in your case may be reduced or may even be dismissed completely.
