We’ve Got Your Back in Your Criminal Case

Often in a criminal matter, it can feel as if the odds are stacked against the accused. After all, the government has several agents working to prove that the individual committed the alleged crime. Police officers gather evidence, interview witnesses, and conduct other investigative tasks. They then pass their case file to a prosecutor who analyzes the evidence and determines how to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

The justice system can be daunting. However, you don’t have to be intimidated when you have our High Desert criminal defense lawyers on your side. We level the playing field.

Our team conducts a thorough investigation and researches relevant case law and legal precedent. We interview witnesses and gather evidence. We also analyze the prosecutor’s arguments to spot holes and strengthen our defense. But most importantly, we listen to our clients. We learn about the case from our clients’ perspectives and are sensitive to their needs and goals.

High Desert Criminal Defense Lawyers Fighting DUI Charges

A California DUI case triggers two different processes. First is the administrative process, which concerns whether the individual’s license will be suspended. This proceeding is separate from the criminal one, and the possible sanctions can be imposed even before the criminal case is concluded. 

The second DUI process is the criminal case, which is concerned with whether the defendant is guilty of driving under the influence. If a judge or jury finds that the evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver committed the offense, the individual may be subject to driver’s license suspension, jail or prison time, and/or fines.

At The Law Offices of Kirk Tarman & Associates, we can represent you throughout both the administrative and criminal DUI processes. Our criminal defense attorneys in the High Desert examine the details of your case, from the initial stop to charges being filed. We look to see whether police officers violated your rights when they pulled you over and arrested you. We also review reports, logs, and records to determine whether the breath and blood test results are accurate. In short, we do what is necessary to build a solid defense on your behalf.
