Holiday DUI Arrest: Call Schwartz & Powell Immediately

by Steven D. Powell Attorney at Law

Beginning December 14th, 2012,  there was a countywide crackdown on DUI drivers in Ventura County.  106 drivers were arrested so far during the winter holiday as law enforcement set up checkpoints in the county.  Many others were arrested on the county highways.  During the holidays the police are looking for any sign of drug or alcohol impairment in drivers.

If you are arrested it means that the new year of 2013 will include immediately contacting a criminal defense lawyer experienced in DUI and vehicular crimes defense. Schwartz & Powell is one of the most experienced law firms in Ventura County.

Schwartz & Powell has a fully staffed full service law office at the ready. We know the Ventura Courts; our offices are less than a  half-mile away from the courthouse; and all four of our attorneys have more than thirty years experience practicing principally in Ventura County. 

Ventura County Court is a peculiar institution and one must understand the court’s unique processes to maximize the client’s results with the court and with the DMV, which will want to damage your driving privilege and with whom we have extensive and successful results. 

When you hire Schwartz & Powell, you have the benefit of dealing with four partners each of whom is highly experienced and successful with drunk driving and other vehicular crimes charges. 

We at Schwartz & Powell take our obligations and responsibilities to our clients seriously.  We charge reasonable rates for reasonable services and we know whether a case should be disposed by plea or by trial.  If trial it must be, we have an outstanding record of not guilty verdicts and dismissals.   And if the case should be resolved by a plea bargain we negotiate dispositions every bit as beneficial to you as is possible. 

We charge realistic fees accordingly so you are not paying for a trial when your case will be negotiated to a conclusion short of trial.  If the case goes to disposition at an early stage or to a trial, we are flexible within limits on payment schedules and accept all major credit cards.

A DUI arrest can be an embarrassing and humiliating experience but do not despair.  The law permits Schwartz & Powell to make your court appearances for you so you do not have to come to court.  We can ordinarily do so for you and advise you of the status afterward.  There is no need for you to stand in line and then spend a morning waiting for your case to be called in a crowded courtroom.
