November 2, 2012: OWI-1st with Hit & Run Reduced to Inattentive Driving

"Let's be honest, how much can you really help?" These were the exact words from our client, BJL, when he first sat down and spoke with Attorney Sarvan Singh. It's a fair question when deciding whether or not to hire an attorney.  As they sat there, Sarvan poured over the police reports and calmly responded, "Quite a bit." That's the level of confidence lawyers in this firm have in themselves. Our expertise and experience in exclusively handling DUI cases allows us to spot shortcomings in a case that many lawyers might miss. Just by taking one look at the police report, Sarvan knew he could beat the OWI based upon several key facts that the police officer could not prove. Sarvan pointed these problems out to the prosecutor, someone who was very familiar with the firm's record of success in these cases.  The prosecutor agreed with him and amended the OWI to Inattentive Driving, which is a non-alcohol-related minor traffic offense that carries no loss of license. In fact, the prosecutor was so concerned about the strength of his case that he also agreed to reduce the Hit and Run.  BJL was initially impressed with Sarvan's optimism, but was beyond thrilled when he actually delivered.
