In most cases, the best outcomes do not just happen by accepting the first plea bargain offer the prosecutor gives. The best DUI case results come from the hardwork of a Cherokee DUI lawyer reviewing the facts and the law and negotiating. If the prosecutor still won't reduce or dismiss the DUI charges, a dedicated DUI lawyer will fight the case at trial if the client wants to contest the DUI and keep it off his or her record.
DUI trials are typically misdemeanors heard before a jury of 6.

Often there is a video or audio recording from the DUI stop that shows the drivers demeanor as well as the field sobriety tests.
