1 Here s The Special Report You Requested... The Hidden Secrets Local Law Enforcement Doesn t Want You To Know! If You Have Been Arrested For a DUI Charge Don t Do Anything or Speak to Anyone Until You Read This Special Report By Derek L. Hall DUI Law

2 If You Have Recently Been Arrested For a DUI Charge....Don t Do Anything Until You Read My Special Report In Its Entirety! Dear Friend, Thank you for reading my Special Report where I will expose many myths and misconceptions regarding DUI charges. I wrote this Special Report in everyday language without all the legal mumbo-jumbo so everyone who ordered this informative Special Report could easily understand what they need to do in order to avoid paying high court fines, state surcharges, higher insurance premiums, loss of license, and possible jail time. If you or someone you know was recently stopped at a police check point and arrested for DUI, you re probably confused and worried about what steps to take next like: 1. Will I lose my driving privileges? 2. Is there really a way to fight a DUI charge and win? 3. Will I have to go to jail for a DUI? 4. Will my insurance premiums go through the roof? 5. What happens if I don t show up in court? 6. Do I really need a lawyer or can I just show up in court on my own? 7. How will I know that the lawyer I ve chosen to defend me is the right lawyer for my DUI defense? First, my name is Derek L. Hall; I have been helping clients as a lawyer the State of Mississippi for more than twenty (20) years. I have focused my practice, in part, on the challenges faced by clients who end up with DUI charges that could possibly land them in jail or permanent suspension of there driving privileges. It s unfortunate, but many people these days end up with a DUI conviction on their permanent driving record when they didn t have to. Did you know that everyone who is pulled over for a DUI is not guilty of that crime? In fact, there are at least 30 ways to rebut the evidence from a breathalyzer machine. Inside this Special Report I m going to outline some of these key secrets they don t want you to know. Unfortunately, I see way too many people misinformed about municipal, justice court, county court and circuit court, and their legal rights as a motorist when faced with a DUI charge. That s why I ve taken the time to write this Special Report and offer it for FREE to anyone who asks for it. Did you know there are key secrets to protecting your legal rights, and driving

3 privileges? Well there is! These days, doing nothing at all is one of the worst things you can do! As auto insurance premiums continue to skyrocket, you really don t want your insurance company to raise your rates again simply because of a DUI charge. Or even worse, drop your coverage altogether because of a DUI that you might not have been guilty of in the first place. The truth of the matter is there are 4 myths about defending a DUI case that everyone should know! These days, you better get the right information before you do anything. It s hard enough to put food on the table while making ends meet these days. Adding the loss of your driving privilege to the mix can make matters impossible for you to make a living. If you or someone you know was recently charged with a DUI, there are some very sobering facts that local law enforcement and prosecutors may NOT want you to know! Let me share with you a real life example of how I have been able to help other people get there life back after a DUI charge and give you some critical insight you need to be made aware of to ensure that you don t get taken for a ride when you show up to court. How Can This Be happening To Me? (To protect our client s confidentiality, last names are not used.) Take for example, Kirk, one of my clients. Kirk was a hard working man, who worked as an auto body specialist for a large body shop. One night after working all day at the shop in the repaint room, on his way home he was stopped by a police officer. The Officer said that Kirk s driving was erratic. The officer asked Kirk if he had been drinking. The officer said that Kirk s eyes were glossy and his driving was erratic. Kirk told the officer that he was working late and had been around chemicals for auto bodywork all day. The officer didn t believe Kirk and asked him to step out of the car placing him under arrest. He was taken to the police station and charged with a DUI. Kirk was completely devastated by all this. In fact, he was completely taken by surprise that he was charged for a DUI, even though he didn t have anything to drink. Since Kirk needed his driver s license to operate auto equipment around the shop, he was in serious trouble of losing his job. Kirk didn t want to tell his boss about the DUI charge since he would probably be fired. He was confused and didn t know what to do about his situation, or his job. He didn t want to lose everything he had worked so hard for. Things really started to look bad for Kirk, since he had to appear in court in a few days. Kirk was desperate when he first came to our office. He told me that he didn t want to lose his job over a DUI charge. So, I immediately did some checking for Kirk regarding the chemicals he was working with. I hired a chemical expert to investigate the job site and the chemicals Kirk was using that night.

4 When the day arrived for Kirk s DUI case to come to trial, Kirk was extremely nervous, since he had a lot to lose should he be convicted of a criminal DUI. I began to present Kirk s case to the officer regarding the event that led to Kirk being stopped by the officer. I explained that the strong chemicals Kirk was using in the auto body shop affected his eye s causing them to tear and become blood shot. His vision was altered due to the chemicals that were being used. Kirk regularly worked in an area where the ventilation was poor. When I offered the opinions of my expert, it was a tremendous turning point for Kirk s case. Without our expert, it really could have been an uphill battle for Kirk. The expert demonstrated to the officer and prosecutor how powerful these chemicals were and how they affected the test results and made them unreliable. The best part was when the officer and the prosecutor and the judge dismissed all the DUI charges. Needless to say Kirk won his day in court! We were successful at helping Kirk get his life back on track. No Miracles...Just A Lot of Hard Work and Determination! Now, I did not work any special miracle on Kirk s case. I just did my job as his lawyer. I did the hard work I was supposed to do that was necessary to help my client. I investigated the case, hired necessary expert witness, examined the records and documented and verified the claims. I knew the law, followed the proper procedures and held my ground for my client. With more than twenty (20) years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I am able to analyze the situation, recommend the best course of action and obtain a just and fair outcome for clients like Kirk. The tragedy in all of this is that there are many people out there just like Kirk who never got a chance to fully understand their legal rights. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people get unfairly charged for driving under the influence without fully understanding the legal process. That s why I ve dedicated myself to fully informing and educating my clients as to what steps are necessary to protect their legal rights. The Fact: There s A Lot More On The Line When It Comes To A DUI Charge Than You Think!!!. What You Need To Know Before You Ever Step Foot In Court For a DUI Charge!

5 MYTH #1: MOST PEOPLE ACCUSED OF A DUI CRIME ARE GUILTY! This myth is probably one of the most troubling myth of all - harbored by the public and lawyers alike. In my opinion, lawyers who believe this myth should never represent a client who s been accused of a DUI charge. It causes harm by eliminating objectivity to the clients case. In the cases where the chemical test used by law enforcement, an infrared breath analysis machine and not a blood test is most often used. This type of evidence can be attacked by a skillful defense attorney. Fortunately for us most prosecutors have no idea how inadequate infrared breath machines are at gathering hard evidence. The fact is that these machines are so unsophisticated at gathering data that virtually no scholarly researcher would ever use it as a means of investigation. Yet prosecutors assume that since the state has approved these machines, its accuracy and reliability are not subject to be challenged in a court of law. Did you know that there are at least 30 ways to rebut the evidence presented from these unsophisticated machines if the attorney understands how these machines work? Most importantly what causes these machines to malfunction, and that the machines are a non-specific test for alcohol. (1) In other words, the machine doesn t actually TEST for alcohol. UNBELIEVABLE!!! The most important fact to understand is how these machines work and how to effectively cross-examine the state s chief witness (the operator) of this device on the alleged accuracy of the machine. How about the classic roadside sobriety tests? What I call the opinion gathering evidence done at local DUI checkpoints. Recent studies have shown that these field tests are assumed to be valid. However, most officers who administer these tests either require the wrong test or improperly instruct the suspect on how to perform them. (2) Being skilled at obtaining the right data could help me position a pre-trial ruling that these tests and the alleged indication must be excluded from the evidence due to lack of scientific foundation. Without evidence, the case cannot proceed with the prosecution. You win. I would leave NO stone unturned! The bottom line here is that these cases require a detailed scientific investigation, similar to a complex murder scene that involved DNA evidence, or ballistics tests. MYTH #2: IT S IMPOSSIBLE TO WIN A DUI CASE! Not only does the general public believe this to be true, but so do prosecutors. This myth is the biggest misconception regarding DUI. In fact, the good news is that experienced DUI defense attorneys win many of the cases, when there is not evidence of a car accident or bad driving involved.

6 When I say win a DUI case I mean having the charges dismissed. In Mississippi, there are no plea bargains for DUI offenses. The most important thing to remember here is you don t ever want to lose your driving privileges or land in jail. Our office has been quite successful at keeping our client s driving privileges for them. In the cases that don t allow for jury trials for misdemeanor drunk-driving charges, a defense attorney will have a challenge convincing the judge to acquit the case. However, if properly prepared, this can be accomplished. MYTH #3: ANYONE CAN DEFEND AN ACCUSED DUI CHARGE. If a close friend needed a lawyer for a specialized field of law like IRS litigation, I would tell them to call the local state bar and consult with a lawyer who has worked with the IRS. I would look for the most skilled attorney who is focused in this field. So, the most important thing to remember when choosing a lawyer is to choose one who will aggressively defend your interests. By not investigating all your options, you could leave yourself at the mercy of the prosecutor or the judge. Again, if you had to go against the government you d want the most aggressive skillful lawyer going up to bat for you; a lawyer with a lot of experience and a lawyer who has tried to verdict a number of cases. Just to drive the point home, if you remember back to the Trial of The Century, (the O.J. Simpson trial), in my opinion the only reason why O.J. Simpson didn t go to jail for life was because he retained the best experts and lawyers he could find. Those lawyers and experts were able to exploit weaknesses in the prosecution s case. Not only do I, but thousands of people across the country believe that to be true. MYTH #4: DRUNK DRIVING IS A MINOR CRIME. Maybe 20 to 30 years ago DUI charges were minor offenses. Many veteran attorneys remember the days when drunk-driving charges carried a slap on the wrist, and fines of $50 to $150, with no loss of driving privileges. In fact it was a simple walk down to the court house paying a small fine and letting the judge reprimand and you for a few minutes. However, those days are long gone! Now with stricter DUI laws you need a lawyer who will represent your interests to the fullest extent of the law. A drunken driving charge could cost you your ability to drive, and not to mention land you behind bars. So, the answer is drunk driving charges are very serious charges and you shouldn t take them lightly.

7 Where Do We Go From Here? The most important secret you need to know in order to avoid being taken for a long ride in court is to hire the most competent, aggressive, strong willed and savvy attorney you can find! If this Special Report makes sense to you in any way, then you probably have a few questions, since you may be uncertain about what to do next.

The most important thing is that the lawyer you chose doesn t miss any critical details regarding your criminal charge that could make a big difference in your case.

What this means to you is you don t have to inconvenience yourself by fighting downtown traffic or paying for parking and you can get your case started immediately. The Worst Thing You Can Do Is What Too Many People Do - Delay or Do Nothing At All! Too many people who faced a DUI charge told me they wished they had acted sooner on my advice before they appeared in court. I have encountered many people who decided not to retain a lawyer because of one reason or another. However, only to find themselves years later wishing they would have gotten sound legal advice. It s unfortunate but TRUE! Please don t let this happen to you. If you re in a situation where you don t know what to do and you can t seem to figure things out, then that s more of a reason to pick up the phone and call my office right NOW! I understand that you have a lot of questions on your mind because having a DUI on your permanent driving record will ultimately affect your life in one way or another. However, not doing anything at all won t change your situation.
