Tough Times Call For Tough Representation

Craziest DUI Defense Compliment Ever

On Behalf of | Nov 18, 2014 | DUI |

I see a new client yesterday, the daughter of a former client.  I did not remember the specifics of his case or family dynamics, but remembered his wife was very unhappy with his arrest.  He tells me that she is going to be angry that I will represent their daughter because she was angry with what I did in his case.  I tried to win it and would not plead him guilty so he could be punished! She wanted him beaten like the assassin did to himself in the DaVinci Code.  When they left my office, the client was going to inform her mother of the charge and me.  She called me later and said, she was surprised how well her mother took the news of the DUI.  Me, not so much.  She was calling her divorce lawyer to get a recommendation from him for a lawyer, who I guess would screw her daughter over.  Meanwhile the letters from the advertisers are going to once again come to her home.  Since they all promise victory and have never tasted defeat, she probably won’t want one of them either.  The case is triable and might be winnable.  It will be a damn shame if this mother cannot see her daughter convicted and on probation.  For her, there would be no justice.  If she gets angry enough to come to this site and reads this, I just want to say: Thank you for the compliment, and I hope to majorly disappoint you.
