  1. First off, relax. Call my friend Ryan Kamada tomorrow. You can find his profile here on Avvo. He'll walk you through all of this.

    No answer here should be considered to form an attorney-client relationship. You should consult with a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction so that a full evaluation of the facts of your case can be conducted.


  2. Yes, you need to hire a criminal defense attorney in your area this week. Unless you had a high BAC - OVER .20 - or there was an accident involved you "likely" are not looking at jail. And yes, you will get your DL back again. You have good reason to be scared. However, I can tell you as a former judge and former prosecutor, you simply made a mistake. It is not like a kidnapping, murder, rape, or assault, where you intentionally went out to hurt someone. We ALL have made mistakes in our lives. Talk wit a few attorneys that you find here on Avvo and find one that is experienced and a good fit. That will take a WHOLE load of stress and strain off your shoulders. Good luck

  4. I agree with my colleagues. Given the licensing issues, you will want to talk to an attorney as soon as possible before your license becomes automatically revoked. In addition, you will want to apply for reinstatement quickly. Finally, DUIs have many legal and factual issues. They are seldom open and shut cases, especially with the issues being raised regarding the Intoxilyzers. I typically recommend talking to a few attorneys so that you can find one you are comfortable with.

  5. If you're scared, freaking out because you were just arrested for a new DUI offense, why not take one of these Colorado lawyers up on their offer for a free consultation?

    Make sure they handle only DUI though.
