Did you know that you have just ten (10) days from the date of your DUI arrest to call the DMV to try and save your license?
Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense. It can affect your profession, transportation, automobile insurance, lifestyle and relationships with others, and, in some cases, could result in jail or prison. If you are charged with a DUI, it will be important for you to retain an attorney who has 20+ years of experience defending and preparing WINNING DUI strategies for his clients!
DUI arrests, or any arrest for that matter, are frightening experiences. The lack of control, the uncertainty of your situation, and the prospect of spending countless hours behind bars are all factors that contribute to the stress and fear of the situation.
DUI Arrests typically begin when a driver is pulled over because they performed some form of traffic violation or there was something wrong with their automobile (a broken taillight for example).
A DUI Officer will claim that during your traffic stop, you exhibit signs of intoxication. Be they physical signs like slurred speech or bloodshot eyes, or olfactory signs like the odor of alcohol emanating from your breath or auto.
Once an officer suspects you are under the influence of alcohol, they may choose to perform roadside Field Sobriety Tests.
