Trial Prep — What Our Team Can Do for You

If you've been arrested and charged with a DWUI in Wyoming, the stakes are high. Possible consequences include hefty fines and possible jail time. Depending on the circumstances, a DWUI conviction could even cost you your job. With so much at stake, you need to be sure you've hired the best Wyoming criminal defense attorney for you. You want someone you can trust, who has experience handling Wyoming DWUI cases, and who will give you the personal attention that you need, and deserve.

At Just Criminal Law, we protect our clients' one shot at justice by helping you understand the consequences of a DWUI conviction, and by aggressively defending you in plea negotiations and, if necessary, at trial.

Hire a Wyoming DWUI Defense Attorney As Soon As Possible

Once you've posted bail and been released from jail, you should contact and hire an experienced Wyoming DWUI defense lawyer as soon as possible. You should have an attorney with you throughout the entire process to help you understand the court proceedings, explain your options, and fight the charge. It's also important to have a lawyer on your side before talking to the police, prosecutor, or judge so that you don't say something that could cause you trouble later on.

During your personal case review and strategy session with our dedicated client care specialist, we'll go over the details of your case to better understand how we can help you. We'll also explain the criminal defense process and help you understand the nature of the charges against you, the potential consequences that a DWUI conviction could have, and how we can help.

Once your case strategy session is over, my team goes to work.

Working to Protect You in Wyoming DWUI Cases

A strong defense is more than just an attorney in the courtroom. You need a team of dedicated criminal defense specialists working to protect your rights.

Trial is the most high-profile part of any criminal case. Statistically, more than 90% of cases will resolve before trial. However, I believe that the way to get the best plea bargain is by preparing every case as if it will go to trial. That's why my staff at Just Criminal Law is one of the hardest working and most effective DWUI defense teams in Wyoming. My investigative team will review the police reports, witness statements, videos, and other evidence with an eye towards providing you with the most effective defense. We conduct our own investigation, and try to exclude any evidence that was improperly obtained.

While our own investigation is on-going, the court will schedule various dates to keep your case moving forward.

Criminal Arraignment

Your first appearance in court is at the Arraignment. The judge will read the charges against you, ask if you have a lawyer, and ask how you plead - guilty, not guilty, or no contest.

At this phase of the proceedings, if you have hired an attorney, you will probably plead not guilty.

The judge will then set the schedule for the case, including a trial date, your next court appearance, and due dates for any pre-trial motions.

Other Court Appearances

Many times the judge will schedule additional court appearances to check the status of the case. These court dates also provide an opportunity for the prosecutor to exchange information with your lawyer, and to discuss the possibility of a plea bargain.

In negotiations and discussions with the judge and prosecutor, I work to have the charges reduced, or even have your case thrown out. Sometimes we can resolve the case without going to trial. But if trial is unavoidable, we put in the work to prepare visual exhibits, prepare witnesses, and get you ready to testify (if you choose to).
