The Fourth of July is a yearly reminder that our country was founded based upon the concepts of liberty, justice and the pursuit of happiness. Most of us pursue happiness on the Fourth by hanging out with friends and family and sometimes having a drink or two. Charles S. Beach and Associates does not advocate drinking driving, but we do recognize that sometimes the pursuit of happiness and liberty collide head on when people drink and drive. This collision tends to happen more often around the Fourth because law enforcement is on high alert. DUI arrests around the major holidays always surge and that is where the third piece of this puzzle comes into play....Justice.
A DUI arrest is not the end of the world, however, Justice is more likely to be served properly if all sides of the Justice equation do their job. In other words, the Prosecutor needs to prosecute and the Defense Attorney has to defend and finally the Judge has to Judge. I point this out because to often in our society Justice is not served because one part of the equation fails to do their job. Often, that failure is the Defense Attorney who fails to properly defend.
I touch on this because we believe in our founding fathers principles... the pursuit of happiness and Justice. Charles S. Beach and Associates always strives to live up our end of the bargain...defending our clients to the best of our abilities... no matter what time of year it is. Enjoy the Fourth!
