Getting in trouble with the law is the biggest hassle, especially when you're short on cash like I am. I had other court issues to deal with, and I was already spending a lot of time and money trying to come up with a reasonable custody agreement. It looked very bad, and I knew my ex's lawyer would use it against me to prove that I wasn't a fit father.
The DUI arrest was just ridiculous. I wasn't even drunk and there wasn't an even an accident. But you never know when a cop wakes up at the wrong side of the bed, so instead of a warning or ticket, he has my car towed and I get processed like a slice of cheese at the local station.
I couldn't have this trumped up charge ruining my reputation and hurting my custody case, so I knew I had to get the most effective DUI lawyer I could find in San Diego. I finally decided on The Spiegel Law Group, because they had a great track record and they were willing to work with me on the payments.
I almost didn't go with them, thinking I might get a cheaper lawyer. But then I realized that I couldn't let this get in the way of me seeing my kids, and you get what you pay for--I wanted a lawyer who could win, not some cheap lawyer who can't get the job done. How much was my peace of mind worth? What's the point of paying discount fees and not winning my case?
So I had them represent me for my DUI case and I'm happy to say it was the right decision. They handled everything and made sure I didn't incriminate myself. They got the charges overturned and with a clear conscience and record, I had no problems proving that I deserved joint custody of my kids.
I would definitely say they are worth every penny. I have recommended them to a few of my friends, who were also very happy with the way their cases were handled. I am definitely calling them if I am ever in legal trouble again, which I hope is either never or not anytime soon. So if what you need is a good DUI or criminal defense attorney to fight for you, I definitely recommend that you call Spiegel Law Group.
