Being arrested for a DUI offense can be overwhelming, expensive and life-changing. If you have been arrested for DUI, your best defense is to obtain an attorney experienced with DUI cases.
THE ARREST & EVIDENCE: When police arrest people for DUI, many times the initial stop was simply for speeding, brake lights out, failure to signal, or erratic driving. The most common thing people do in these situations is admitting to being under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances when asked by the officer. This admission usually escalates their investigation to include a field sobriety test, breathalyzer tests, and even blood tests.
All situations are different, but once you have admitted to being under the influence, and have performed any sobriety tests, you will almost certainly be arrested. If you are arrested, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible to mitigate the possibilities of police gathering more evidence against you. You have the right to remain silent and should exercise that right.
How DUI Charges Are Defended
Defending a DUI charge is complicated and includes a series of motion filings, hearings, negotiations, expert testimony, if it applies, and even evidence suppression, when possible.
