Retaining a lawyer is an absolute must. Please do not make a statement to police before speaking with an attorney. Regardless of who you are dealing with at the prosecutor's office or police department, their job is to convict you, not cut you a break.
If this is not your first arrest, or if your BAC is over .17, the need for vigorous representation is even more urgent. At some point you may face mandatory jail and additional penalties. These have serious and lasting consequences.
If you took a Breathalyzer or blood test, there are countless things that can go wrong with the results. Results of other people have even been confused with our clients'. When you hire our law firm, we will examine and question any and all alleged evidence against you.
Many DUI cases are thrown out for lack of evidence, or due to illegal search and seizure producing the evidence. The legal system has strict rules protecting your rights. Your right to be free of unreasonable search and seizure is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.
