DUI Attorney Gregg J. Stark
Other Attorneys and Those Employed By Law Enforcement Agencies Throughout Indiana Have Known To Call Me At Anytime When Seeking Answers To OWI Defense Questions Whether in Hamilton County Or Throughout the State; So Should You.
Hamilton County Is Not Like Other Counties When It Comes To OWI Defense. Let’s talk about a winning plan of action and how we can successfully get through your case together when needing a top DUI lawyer in Noblesville, Fishers, Westfield, Carmel or the best Statewide DUI Defense.
What follows are common questions asked of me among many people following a dui/owi arrest. Please review the information provided as well as content related to avoiding bad lawyers and feel free to call me as soon as possible following dui charges as there are strictly enforced deadlines to protect your legal rights:
Mr. Stark, Are You The OWI Lawyer Who Will Be Representing Me?
Yes. Only I handle all cases that are entrusted to my defense. I am aware that when people contact Stark Law Offices for protection, they are calling for my personal assistance. As a result, clients have the right to demand that it is me who will be handling all aspects of their legal defense. Anything less is not acceptable by my standards or those you have a right to expect.
As an experienced advocate for people facing owi charges, I know what people are looking for when calling me before saying a word. People want clearly explained answers as to what to do now for their legal protection. Those turning to me want to know that I give a damn about their plight and that I have the knowledge to help them.
Your time is valuable. People want to know that I will respond to them quickly and that reaching out to me for guidance is not going to cost them financial pain. It will cost you nothing to call me. In fact, I view it as my job to answer whatever questions you have without concern that you are on a legal billing clock. When charged with OWI, every minute counts. Let’s talk with no time limit or legal obligation.
Do You Only Defend DUI Charges In Hamilton County?
No. I fight DUI charges throughout the state. In fact, over the course of twenty five years I am gratified to know that I have been requested to either defend or consult on dui defense cases within every one of Indiana’s ninety two county jurisdictions.
Does it Matter When I Retain You to Protect Me?
In a word: YES. When defending a criminal case, time is not your friend. When someone calls me I’m not as much concerned with when the next court date is scheduled as much as when did the arrest take place. The reason for this concern is that soon after an arrest, a case is forwarded to a prosecutor’s office for review. It is then that decisions are made that can have a lasting impact on a case outcome and options available.
Without the intervention of a known and respected attorney at the earliest stages of a prosecution, one is sending a message that the likelihood exists that he or she will be represented by a public defender or local jack of all trades master of none attorney. Charging decisions and settlement opportunities are often dependent on a prosecutor’s calculation as to your legal representation and the risk factor in pursuing excessive and unreasonable punishment. With the strength of a known and experienced dui defense lawyer behind you, one accused of owi is putting their best foot forward at the earliest stages of a prosecution to meet that legal challenge.
My License Has Been Suspended and It’s Difficult to Have Someone Take Me to Your Office. How Can I Get You Started on My Defense?
Once we’ve spoken by phone, most clients get the process started simply by sending over an email or confidential voice mail that states one’s full name, address and phone, the court date and time, the client’s date of birth and all other contact numbers the client can be reached. Once credit or debit card information has been provided authorizing a discussed payment amount, or other payment arrangements have been made, we’re ready to protect your legal rights and options before the Hamilton County prosecutor immediately.
The Proper Role Of A Competent OWI Attorney.
One of the most important attributes of a skilled lawyer is the ability to communicate with a client. The lawyer must understand that the person they are consulting with will often have many feelings when speaking to a defense attorney; sadness, bitterness and fear are all quite common.
In my experience, clients are not unreasonable in their expectations of an owi defense lawyer. People expect calls to be returned promptly. People expect me to provide them with information that is knowledgeable and told in a clear way that they can understand.
Most importantly, people want to know that I care. They want to know that they have retained a lawyer who will fight and do everything legally possible to protect them. They do not want to be made to feel as though they are inconveniencing the lawyer with questions and want clear and concise answers as to the best way to proceed with their case.
Too often good people make understandable yet critical mistakes when retaining a lawyer to protect them from an owi prosecution. People may find it most convenient to turn to their general practice family lawyer who feels an obligation to assist you even though he or she might know next to nothing as to how to defend an owi case. More commonly, people may have thought that all lawyers are of the same skill level following a dui arrest and went with the lawyer who threw out the lowest fee.
I know all too well all of the fact patterns that can lead one to the wrong attorney. How do I know? I know because a large percentage of my clients unfortunately come to me from other attorneys who are ill equipped to handle such cases, much less clients who need their help and compassion. The best attorneys in Indiana care. They care about what happens to clients on their watch. They have pride in the work that they do and are fulfilled with the knowledge that once representation has been concluded both lawyer and client will have benefited from their developed relationship together.
Clients still keep in touch with me on cases from years ago. It is my hope that the efforts that have brought you to my website are rewarded with the knowledge that you have found a capable owi defense attorney who will welcome your call for help.
