DWI / DUI / Drunk Driving
Being accused of driving while intoxicated can be a life changing experience. Being pulled over and commanded to take the Police Officer’s standardized field sobriety tests is intimidating. For many people this will be their first interaction with the police. You are alone on the side of the road. The tests are unfamiliar and difficult. Any imperfection in performance of the tests will be considered a sign of intoxication. The Police have a great deal of training and practice. You do not. It’s their playing field. Regardless of your performance on the tests, you will most likely be arrested. After being arrested, you may be requested to blow into a breath test machine or, you may have a needle stuck in your arm to take your blood. In addition to the humiliation of being arrested, your car will be towed, your driver’s license will be subject to suspension in an administrative hearing (ALR hearing) and you will face the possibility of being sentenced to jail or prison. There is also the possibility of being fined thousands of dollars and owing thousands of dollars in additional fees for driver’s license surcharges. Add to this the difficulty of having a criminal conviction that will follow you the rest of your life and you can see why these cases are very serious and require an experienced attorney.
