In California, an effective DUI defense requires a skilled DUI attorney. But a client has an ability to help his counsel out. After you have been arrested, booked, and hopefully released, write down everything that happened as soon as possible. While it is fresh in your mind, facts, seemingly trivial, can be immensely helpful to your DUI defense attorney.
I recently had a client come in to discuss his new DUI. He wrote down everything he could remember, and brought it to me. The details were helpful to evaluate the police officer's actions and statements, how the FSTs were conducted, the surrounding environs of the arrest area, and the client's statements that were made.
So, if you are faced with a DUI, remember to write down all that you can remember, while you still remember it. It'll be valuable down the road.
