DUI cases require attorneys and their client to examine the case early and often with consideration to the client’s particular history. The preliminary proceedings are significant because they allow a defendant the opportunity to lay a factual basis for the case in order, sometimes, to challenge the sufficiency of the case or the legality of the case at later stages. Many alternative disposition programs (e.g., Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Programs or Intermediate Punishment Programs*) mandate forgoing certain preliminary proceedings. Therefore, the attorney and client need to make an educated decision early on to ensure that the proper path is taken in light of the client’s desires.
