Taking the First Step
The days that follow your DUI (driving while under the influence) arrest can be a dark time. Though your mental state may make you want to crawl into a hole rather than face the world, you need to start taking steps toward resolving the issue. Hiring an accomplished lawyer can take you from a harsh sentence that includes jail time, to a lesser punishment.

Getting Things Together After Your DUI
Unfortunately, many lawyers will only assist those arrested for DUI if they are willing to plead guilty. When you work with a top-notch attorney, you will have a better understanding of your options.
In order for your legal proceedings to run smoothly, make sure you hire a lawyer who can:
- Take a closer look at the chemical test of your blood or breath.
- Analyze the traffic stop that led to your DUI arrest.
- Walk you through every step of the process and counsel you on your opportunities for DUI expungement (the process of getting the DUI removed from your permanent record).
- Take care of all pretrial litigation and prepare a case to present to the jury that fits your unique situation.
- Interpret the police officer’s observations during the vehicle stop.
