DUI San Diego
Most misdemeanor D.U.I. cases can take from 2 to 4 months to complete. Initially, we enter a plea of not guilty on your behalf with the court at the Arraignment. We then obtain information about the case from several sources for our representation of your case. For example, in-office meetings, client information forms, witness interviews and police reports are all used in our investigation and your defense.
Your appearance is not necessary on the Arraignment date. The court will set the matter for a pretrial conference. You do not have to attend the pretrial conference. Please call to set an appointment to speak with Attorney Vik Monder before the pretrial conference.
Cases are often set for pretrial conferences several times prior to trial, and sometimes trial dates are continued. You will usually not be required to appear in person in court, while there are times you may be required to do so. Thus, it is extremely important that you contact our office by phone 2-3 days prior to your court date to check the status.
There may be several options available to resolve your case, depending on the facts of your case. You have a right to a jury trial and we will plan and aggressively prepare for that, unless you instruct us otherwise. The state may offer a plea bargain. It is solely the Prosecutors decision whether to offer a plea or what the plea will be. If you are interested in a plea, we can ask the prosecutor to make an offer. It is entirely your decision on whether or not to accept the plea. We will aggressively prepare your case and explain your options so that you can make good a decision.
Our office can and will answer your questions regarding this matter and its effect on your driver’s license and/or auto insurance or other questions you may have. Please feel free to call Attorney Vik Monder at any time with your questions. Several attorneys generally provide their input on each case, and are prepared to assist as needed.
If you feel the need to set up an appointment to speak with me sometime soon, please do so. You may, however, elect to wait until we receive police reports and other documents in a few weeks.
At this time, we have opened your file, and will be requesting discovery, i.e., police reports and records on your case.
