Questions About Your Rights?

  • Is there a legal limit for DUI?

    Answer:

    Yes. In most states, you are considered to be “under the influence” if your blood alcohol content is .08% or higher. The legal limit can be even lower for individuals who utilize a commercial driver’s license or individuals who are under the legal drinking age (minors).

  • What if I rely on my license for my job?

    Answer:

    A DUI arrest or conviction can be incredibly serious for drivers who rely on their license for work-related duties. Though the best advice for commercial drivers is to never drink while driving, we understand that even the smallest mistake could jeopardize your future. To prevent a revocation or suspension of your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), you must speak with an attorney immediately.

  • Will a failed sobriety test mean that I am convicted?

    Answer:

    Absolutely not. Some tests can be re-tested, such as blood tests, and the results from any roadside breath tests or field sobriety tests can always be challenged. Police officers are required to follow a certain protocol when issuing these tests, and an attorney can help determine if any steps in the protocol were broken or violated. Even if the evidence against you seems incriminating, you must talk with a lawyer who can help determine which steps to take in your case.

  • Do I have to perform a breath test?

    Answer:

    Nearly every state in the U.S. implements Implied Consent Laws. This essentially means that all legally licensed drivers will be required to take and complete a blood, breath, or chemical test when asked by a law enforcement officer. Drivers must cooperate with enforcement if they are asked to take a test in order to determine the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level. Failure to complete the test could be used as evidence against you, should the case continue to trial.

  • Possible Case Outcomes

    Charges Reduced

    There may be a chance that you can get your charges reduced to a misdemeanor, depending upon various circumstances with what exactly happened. We investigate all avenues to determine if this is possible for you.

  • Possible Case Outcomes

    Though prosecutors may be harsh, we utilize our skills to negotiate a lesser charge. We work hard to negotiate a deal that keeps you from spending time in jail or convince the court why your case deserves minimum penalties.

  • Possible Case Outcomes
