Driving Under the Influence

Being charged with DUI can have severe consequences, including major fines, jail time, loss of license, requirement to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, and more. A DUI is not the charge you should represent yourself on, due to the technical nature of the charge, instead, let one of our attorneys represent you!

                You are entitled to certain rights after arrest, such as a confidential phone call, being advised of the penalties of refusing a chemical test, an independent medical examination with a doctor of your own choosing, and more. As former State prosecutors, we have handled hundreds of these cases, taught courses to other attorneys, and trained police officers, we will ensure you were given all of these rights.

                If you have taken a breathalyzer test or given blood, there are certain procedures the police must follow in order for those results to be admissible. We know exactly what to look for and have handled hundreds of cases that involve blood alcohol content results and the correct operation of the Intoxilyzer 9000.

                The penalties for DUI vary depending on what your blood alcohol content is.
