  • A Pitchess motion is where a defendant seeks information from an officer's private file.

  • Motions in Limine
  • In Limine motions are motions that control what can and cannot be said during trial.

  • Jury Trial

  • DMV Hearings

  • DMV Appeals and Writs
  • DMV writs involve suing the DMV to undo an unjust DMV decision.

  • Sentence Management

Other Services

Sometimes, DUI clients need related services that aren't directly related to the trial. For instance, the DMV can deny getting a license back.

The related services Mari Titus provides involve suing the DMV if they fail to get your license back illegally ("DMV writs"), expungements, and drug related offenses.

Lastly, Mari Titus takes limited family law and divorce cases.

The consultation on these services is similar and still free.

Expungements

An expungement is a process that can remove a convicton from an indivdual's record in some instances. To be considered, you must be halfway through probation and have completed all other terms and conditions.
