What Your Initial Consultation Will Look Like
After making an appointment with our responsive and friendly staff, we will immediately begin evaluating your case, listening to you closely and reviewing all documentation you bring to our office. Then begins our thorough and detailed, easy to understand education process where we explain your rights and what’s at stake, methodically laying out potential penalties for our clients. We are skilled at determining your defenses based on the charges depending on the unique facts of your case and use our resources to thoroughly investigate the facts surrounding your arrest.
Possible Penalties You May Face If Convicted
As discussed above, the stakes are high. Upon being arrested for a DUI your license will be suspended 30 days. It is an arrestable offense to drive without a driver’s license. However, you may contact us immediately to appeal the suspension. You will have to act quickly because you only have 15 days from the date of the arrest to file the appeal.
Other possible penalties, if convicted with a DUI, may include fines, suspension of driver’s license, jail time, and installation of a breath alcohol ignition interlock device. The following chart illustrates the severity of the penalties based on the individual charges and BAC levels (blood alcohol content):
|$100-500||6 months||Suspended for 30 days (1st suspension)|
|DUI(1st offense is a misdemeanor)||0.08% +||Up to $1000||10 days-1 year||Revocation up to 6 months|
|2nd offense in 10 year is a felony||0.08%+||Up to $2,500||1-5 years||Revocation up to 1 year|
What Can We Do to Help You Beat Your DUI Charges
We are experienced trial attorneys and are ready to defend you in court. The prosecution must prove their case. Therefore, we do not settle cases easily without putting up a fight on your behalf. Some defenses employed may include questioning the validity of a stop, why you may have been removed from the vehicle, checking the accuracy or functionality of the breath-test machine used to measure the BAC. However we are also adept at negotiating favorable settlements with the prosecutor, if and only if we surmise it is in the best interest of the client.
Other Scenarios When You Can Be Arrested For Alcohol or Drug Use
We also offer representation for situations when you or loved one is arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or for APC (actual physical control). Someone may be charged with APC if they were arrested while under the influence of drugs or alcohol in their parked car regardless if they had no intention of driving or were trying to sober up in their car.
