Driving Under the Influence (D.U.I.)

Just because you have been arrested for a DUI offense, does not mean that you will be convicted. Over the past several years, the DUI statutes have become more strict and the penalties more severe. However, it is still a criminal offense and the defendant has the same constitutional rights as anyone else charged with a crime. You are still innocent until or unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

DUI convictions result in automatic jail time, significant fines, supervised probation, and loss of or restricted driving privileges. Convictions become part of a permanent criminal record and can have a significant impact on current and future employment. It is important that the attorney you choose understands the impact a conviction will have and never considers a DUI as a “routine” matter.

Our attorneys will analyze your case from the moment the officer first observes you or your vehicle. We will evaluate the nature of the stop, the preliminary questions asked by the officer, your demeanor and performance on field sobriety tasks and any blood or alcohol test administered. Strict procedures are required to be followed by the officers in each one of these steps. It is important that your attorney understand those procedures and hold the officers accountable throughout the process of the arrest.

If there are any grounds which might enable the attorney to have the case dismissed, those grounds will be explored and used towards that goal. Otherwise, even though there are legal minimums that must be applied to a DUI offense, the case can still be negotiated and the penalties reduced in many instances. If the client wishes to proceed to trial, our attorneys will gather evidence, enlist the services of experts in blood alcohol testing, and challenge the State’s proof at every opportunity.
