You have peace of mind knowing that a strong representative is by your side. Our law firm is highly respected in the area of criminal law due to our determination and legal skill and we act quickly on your behalf.

We have experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys for a federal DUI, boating under the influence (BUI), DUI involving drugs, or any other type of DUI case, our DUI Attorney Team has the resources and experience to defend you. These types of cases can prove to be extremely complicated.

Why face these penalties if you don't have to? You can fight your DUI, but you don't have much time after your initial arrest to procure a defense. A license suspension will also dramatically alter your way of living because you will no longer be able to get around with the freedom that you used to.

We understand that not everyone who is accused of DUI is guilty and we also understand that many people are falsely accused of crimes they did not commit. Whatever your case is, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team today so that we can examine your case.


Defend Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Charges and Challenge Evidence

You may erroneously believe that your case is now hopeless. There are very specific rules police officers must follow and we have DUI expert experience in examining the evidence and challenging it in court.

If you were not clearly given instructions or were wrongfully pulled over in the first place, all evidence against you could be thrown out of court.

The same is true regarding chemical testing. Breath tests and blood tests are helpful in determining the blood alcohol content of an individual, but they are not always accurate. If the device was not property calibrated or the law enforcement officer did not correctly administer the test, it could give out an inaccurate reading.


Extensive Punishments and Great Costs to Those Charged with a DUI

The severity of the possible penalties you could be facing vary based on the circumstances of your offense. Possible punishments include: license suspension, vehicle impoundment, fines, jail, community service, and more.

  • A second or third DUI offense will be punished more harshly than would a first DUI offense.
  • Causing an accident leading to injury (DUI with injuries) or manslaughter will have increased  penalties.
  • Under the age of 21 while drinking and driving could be convicted of DUI as a minor.
  • Out of state DUI will also have different ramifications, both in the state you were arrested in as well as in your home state.

Expungements to Clear the Wreckage of Your Past

Even if you already have been convicted of DUI in the past, you may be eligible to an expungement. This means that your record could be permanently sealed to the public and that you be will be able to answer no when asked if you have a criminal record.


Warrants

After you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you will have to schedule a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. At the DMV hearing, you will be able to challenge your license suspension, but the hearing must be scheduled within 10 days following your arrest. After this, it is crucial that you have an attorney on your side during the DUI court process.
