First Offense…a lifetime of consequences
Being arrested for drunk driving can be an intensely emotional experience. For most people, this is the first time they have ever been arrested. However, due to the strict penalties, you may feel as though you have committed a capital offense.
Repeat offender…stricter punishments
If you have a prior conviction for drunk driving, the police and prosecutor will likely treat you very harshly. There is little sympathy for repeat offenders, as the authorities feel the message just did not get through the first time. Now, more than ever, you need an aggressive and skilled attorney by your side.
Take the first step to putting this behind you
Did the police officer overstate any impairment? Did the breath test machine malfunction? Did you simply make a poor decision? These things do not matter right now. What’s most important is that you make a decision on your representation and how you want this matter handled. The first step towards getting your life back is to go to court with a skilled DUI defense attorney standing next to you. This step will demonstrate to the prosecutor that you are serious about defending your freedom and reputation against the charge, and that you will fight against the consequences that a conviction can bring.
