YOU’VE BEEN ARRESTED FOR DUI. NOW WHAT DO YOU DO?
Have a lawyer by your side when you see the judge.
If you or a family member has been arrested for DUI, it is important to get legal advice quickly. You will have a mandatory court hearing with the judge on the next court day after you are arrested. The judge will decide important things about your case, and the prosecutor will be there. You should have an attorney by your side at that hearing.
Learn how you can save your license.
There will be a strict deadline for requesting a hearing to save your driver’s license. Talk to a trustworthy attorney right away to see what you should do.
Get the best result in your case.
Only an experienced attorney can review your case and find legal issues that will help you get a good result. Whether you want to take your case to trial, or work out a plea bargain with the prosecution, it is crucial that you have an attorney working hard on your case to prepare your trial, or to fight for the best settlement.
Consider all the consequences of a DUI charge.
Your case is not like everyone else’s. Maybe you have family in Canada and you need to be able to cross the border (and come back). Maybe you are worried about your criminal record and your ability to get into college or get a good job. Maybe this is not your first offense and you need help getting treatment and staying out of jail. An experienced attorney will listen to your concerns and give you the answers you deserve.
