To Plead or Not to Plead: A Guilty Defendant's Guide to Plea Bargaining
It happens to the best of people. You just never thought it would happen to you. The world of DWI arrests and prosecutions has changed dramatically over the last decade. Much of the ambiguity and guesswork has been removed from the process. The old advice, "Never Blow" rarely applies today. Even if you "don't blow", it is likely a police officer will obtain a warrant to draw and test your blood. So where does that leave you? Unfortunately, many defendants become convinced that there is no hope. Nix|Poet's team of criminal defense and DWI attorneys doesn't believe in no hope. In fact, we provide hope.
