If you are suspected of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be arrested for DUI (driving under the influence).

A DUI conviction has serious consequences (for example, losing your driving privileges); but an experienced DUI attorney can often get the charges dropped or reduced, or may be able to negotiate lesser penalties depending on your circumstances and your past history.
