Our Successes

Updated on April 10th, 2024 at 09:45 am

Attorneys at Bruckheim and Patel try to obtain favorable results and offers from the prosecution in all of our DUI cases in pretrial litigation that lead to dismissals without a trial. We are able to do this through diversion programs such as a deferred sentencing agreement (DSA). However, when the offer is not in our client’s best interest and will lead to a conviction, we are not afraid to go to trial.

Our partners, Michael Bruckheim and Sweta Patel, are both trained and certified in DWI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. This is the same training that police officers who testify in DUI cases before the court have been trained in. Here are just a few of our success stories.
