“Sometimes at trial things come out that you don’t expect,” Graylin says about a criminal jury trial he had involving a fight between two baseball umpires.  “In that case, my client swore that he was defending himself.  It was hard to believe, because just looking at him, my client was noticeably bigger than the alleged victim.”


And the alleged victim got the worst of it, receiving many injuries in a ball field scuffle.


“People thought my client crazy to go to trial when he had been one delivering crushing blows,” Graylin points out.  “But when the witnesses, some of them minor children, testified, my client’s story made sense.”


And the jury found Graylin’s umpire client NOT GUILTY.


Criminal matters involve carefully turning over the evidence and looking at unreasonable circumstances rationally and from a particular perspective.


“You have to relate to your client,” says Graylin, “and get their side and then consult the law.”


The law firm of Graylin C. Ward has helped clients with criminal matters in all courts for 27 years.  Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor or a felony, Graylin is there to help you.  He will listen to your side of things.


Delay in hiring an attorney or otherwise taking action can cost you. As an example, Graylin points to the need to immediately retain an attorney in driving under the influence matters.


“If you are arrested for DUI, you need to be aware that your right to drive on the roads of this State may be in jeopardy.”  Graylin warns.


In certain circumstances, the only way to continue driving beyond 30 days after arrest is to request an administrative hearing within 10 days following your arrest.  Failure to request this hearing could result in loss of license for 1 year.  This 1 year period is a hard suspension, which means that no limited permits are available during this suspension.  At that point, even resolving the DUI case with a plea of guilty will likely not result in your ability to procure a limited driving permit during the administrative license suspension period.  One way of resolving the suspension is to go to trial in hopes of being found NOT GUILTY, which would lift such administrative suspension of your license.


Let Graylin C. Ward help you request an administrative hearing in a DUI matter and help you navigate through the process of resolving a charge of driving under the influence.
