The good folks over at Huffington Post have written an article about hiring the right DUI attorney for your case.  Over 1 million people are arrested across the country for DUI and every one of them needs to hire an attorney with the experience and expertise to help ensure that this mistake does not completely derail their life.  We agree with the points made by Huffington Post and encourage you to call Attorney Richard James for a free no-hassle consultation.

Look into your potential attorneys experience and education.  Ask those close to you if anyone has knowledge of the attorney or his ability.  When you meet with a potential attorney, feel free to ask questions.  Your life is at stake so we encourage you to ask questions about our experiences, abilities and the circumstances of your particular case.  We feel comfortable that once you compare the reputation and experience of Attorney James to his compatriots, you will agree that he is the right choice.

Rhode Island does not certify any attorney in a particular practice area, but we like to think when it comes to DUI in Rhode Island… its kind of our thing.  Attorney James is in Court on a daily basis representing DUI defendants and breathalyzer refusal cases.  Word of mouth and an unrelenting need to win, have helped our office become established as one of the leading DUI defense firms in the State.  And even though we have had hundreds of DUIs dismissed (both before and after trial!), Attorney James is always striving to be better.  We’re not satisfied with good enough!

Attorney James spent this past week at a conference presented by the National College of DUI Defense at Harvard University in Boston. This intensive program included lecture on the most recent innovations in DUI defense, in-depth discussions of tactics and practices, and trial technique.

DUIs are a unique area of criminal defense practice.  For one, people arrested and charged with DUI run the social gamut… young and old, rich and poor, career criminal and those in trouble for the first time in their life.  Second, DUI can be very difficult to prosecute successfully and it is for that reason that we take a large number of DUI cases to trial.  The prosecution has to prove that you were driving your car while over .08 and hope that the cop did their job perfectly.  Just a couple of potential defenses include: Was the police stop justified? Was the field sobriety test implemented correctly? Was the breathalyzer test conducted properly and was the machine properly calibrated and tested.  If there is a defense to be made – rest assured, we’ll find it and fight like hell.
