DUI Defense

Being charged with a DUI, or driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol, can be socially and mentally straining, since a conviction will follow you for the rest of your life and can impact everything from trying to get a good job to finding a place to live. It is critical to find someone who is willing and able to defend you, someone with training and experience in dealing with both the legal system and DUI law as it relates to your case. DUI lawyers specialize in DUI law, so they are the perfect answer to your problem.

Evidence and Testimony

Even if you agreed to answer the questions of law enforcement individuals without an experienced attorney present, we can still help you develop an effective defense in your individual case. It is much easier to refute evidence than to create it, and the burden of proof rests with the prosecution in these types of cases. Regardless of your circumstances, you need someone on your side who understands the many deadlines, windows of opportunity, and rebuttals necessary for defending against a DUI charge.

From eyewitness testimony to failed BAC testing, we are ready to handle any type of evidence that may be presented. We will strive to ensure the most favorable outcome possible in your individual case, and our track record of more than 90% favorable outcomes achieved—or at the least more favorable than what was believed to be possible—speaks for itself.

Our experienced team of attorneys and staff members is well aware of the challenges that you face, from sobriety test results to BAC (blood alcohol concentration) evidence. We are ready to sit down with you and develop an effective strategy for your defense, and we know that each case is very different. Never face the stress and pressure of the legal system without help!

Avoiding A DUI Conviction

Obviously, the best way to avoid a DUI conviction is to refuse to drive after drinking alcohol or dealing with any type of prescription or recreational drug that could cause drowsiness or loss of mental acuity. Aside from refusing to drive in this situation, refuse to ride with anyone else in the same situation. Take care of your friends and family members by talking to them about driving under the influence, and know that you could be making a major difference in that person’s life.

Store helpful phone numbers in your cell phone before you head out for a fun night with friends, especially if you think there may be drinking involved. If you do not have a cell phone, keep these in your pocket so that you can use them when the time comes. You always have the option to call a cab, or ask to sleep overnight if you are at a friend’s house, if you do not feel like you should be driving.
