    Zachary’s Answer

    I would retain counsel who handles DUI cases. There are two seperate issues that have to be dealt with. (1) The DUI charge which is a criminal offense and (2) the refusal which is civil and handled separately. An attorney will be able to go over your case with you including any defenses that you may have.

  • DUI help, what should I do?

    A couple of weeks ago I was pulled over shortly after smoking a bowl of marijuana. The cop confiscated my paraphernalia and the approximately 2 grams of pot that I had on me. I did some field tests and eventually was cuffed and taken to the hospit...

    Zachary’s Answer

    First thing you should do is hire a DUI Attorney Immediately to go over all your options.

    ARD which stands for Accelerated Rehabilitated Disposition is a first time offenders program. If and when you successfully complete this program you will (1) earn a dismissal of the charges (2) avoid a criminal record (3) avoid jailtime and (4) recieve a 1-2 month suspension rather than 1 year. Each County runs its own ARD program so you want to make sure to talk with an experienced DUI attorney who understands the rules in the County where you were arrested.

    Most attorneys offer a free consultation. I suggest you contact one as soon as possible to go over all your options.

  • DUI charges

    My friend got a DUI charge for smoking marijuana before driving... On the record, it says that she is male, can she get out of the charges for that reason?

    Zachary’s Answer

    Have your friend contact a qualified DUI attorney to discuss this matter. It is highly unlikely that the case will just be dismissed based on what you describe however there may be some other mistakes that were made by the police.
