About Barrett Law Services
Hiring an attorney after being charged with a crime can be a nerve-wracking experience. This includes simple traffic tickets, DUI, or any felony. The last thing you want to do is hire a defense lawyer who fails to keep his or her promises or who is incapable of getting the results that you need, or even worse, fails to communicate with you on a regular basis. Your continued freedom and/or peace of mind depends heavily on your choice of an attorney, so be sure to hire a defense lawyer who follows through on communicating with you, the client, as promised, and who has the knowledge, and access to the resources to provide you with a competent defense. Remember, when you have been charged with a crime, the charging entity(prosecution) HAS to PROVE you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a high standard the prosecution has to overcome.
I personally handle every case myself and vigorously represent my clients during each stage of their case. I also know what it takes to properly investigate, negotiate, and ultimately to try your case. No detail will be overlooked as I prepare your case for the best possible outcome.
With my clients, I strive to be compassionate, knowledgeable, and approachable. I am also upfront and honest about the possible outcomes. No one likes surprises, least of all clients.
In court, I employ a combination of cutting-edge, modern advocacy and time-honored logical, emotional, and personal persuasive techniques. My first priority is always protecting his clients’ rights and fighting for them like no one else can.
As a DUI attorney, I belong to two distinct DUI organizations that provide incredible resources for fighting DUI charges. They are the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys and The National College for DUI Defense. They allow me access to hundreds if not thousands of attorneys across the county who have examined and tried almost every issue revolving around DUI cases, from challenging Blood Alcohol Concentration Tests, to whether the temperature that day can affect the Standard Field Sobriety Tests.
I have also attended and passed the 24 hour long Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST) Participant course that law enforcement officers are supposed to attend before charging and processing a DUI. The course covers everything from what an officer should look for before deciding to stop someone, all the cues they may perceive upon initial contact with you, performing certain medical checks prior to administering the SFST’s, conducting the SFST’s to standard, and the Incident report the officer should be writing up after the arrest. While I believe almost every law enforcement officer on the streets is a good person, who does their job with the public’s safety and interest in mind, as they truly do protect and serve, they do sometimes make mistakes. Those mistakes can impact your life in every way possible…. financially, emotionally, physically and even in regards to your freedom. This is why you need a trained DUI attorney that will fight for you and can examine the evidence and discover what mistakes have been made.
In civil cases there is a different standard for deciding who is right or wrong. In these cases, it’s a matter of proving by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not) No matter if you are the Plaintiff (accuser) or the Defendant, I will represent you to the utmost of my ability.
