If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you should contact an Orange County DUI or DWI attorney. During your initial interview with a DUI attorney, you will be asked several questions about your arrest and what happened leading up to it. Below are some questions you are likely to be asked, so it might help to have your answers to these questions ready before your interview.
During your arrest, was your car searched by the police, and if so, did they find anything?
Did you give consent to have your car searched? What about your purse or other belongings?
How much sleep did you get in the nights before your arrest?
Had you taken any medication?
Have you ever experienced a head injury?
When did the officer tell you that you were under arrest?
Were you placed in handcuffs?
Did the officer read you your Miranda rights, and what did you do after that (waive them or remain silent)?
Did you ask to have an attorney present?
If you were given a breath test, the specific way the test was conducted may be important. How many samples did you provide for the breath machine, and was it difficult for you to provide them?
Did the operator interrupt your breathing or ask you to hold your breath during the test?
The answer to these questions may be helpful to your attorney when evaluating your case. If you have more questions about how to proceed after a DUI arrest, contact Orange County DUI attorney Staycie R. Sena at (949) 477-8088 now for a free consultation.
