Navigating Through Your DUI Charges

Pulled Over for DUIIf you are being charged with a DUI, it can have truly devastating effects. You are probably angry with yourself for letting this happen, embarrassed to face family and friends, worried about your job, scared because you don’t know whether you are going to jail, and confused because you are not sure what to do next. The system is already moving against you so now is the time to take action!

Working with an experienced attorney will help to alleviate the stress involved with the steps that follow.

Understanding Your Options After a DUI

Many DUI lawyers are only able, or willing, to talk their clients through a guilty plea bargain. When you understand your rights and options, you and your lawyer can help shape a defense that may help you avoid a jail sentence or a license suspension.

You will need an experienced attorney who can:

  • Attack the traffic stop that led to the DUI charge.
  • Expertly cross-examine the police officer’s observations during the vehicle stop.
  • Challenge the chemical test of your blood or breath.
  • Skillfully handle pretrial litigation and have the ability to try your case to a jury.
  • Educate you on every option that you have along the way and assist with DUI expungement.
