DUI CRIME LAW

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you owe it to yourself to get the advice of a knowledgeable DUI Attorney as soon as possible. The fines, license suspension and increased insurance rates that may result from a DUI arrest can together represent a much greater expense for you than an attorney’s fee.

THE RIGHT ATTORNEY MATTERS
Field sobriety tests and devices used to determine a person’s intoxication level at the time of arrest are not always accurate. A skilled attorney can review the results of your arrest to determine how to best challenge the DUI allegations.

The potential penalties for a conviction, even if it’s a first offense, can be extremely serious. Having the right attorney can make all the difference. There are a number of legal defenses and ways to defend DUI charges.

We provide defense for:

Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
Under-aged DUI
Multiple DUI
DUI Penalties
Driving on a Suspended
Bench Warrants
