A DUI arrest can happen to anyone who drinks or takes legal or non-legal drugs, and then operates a vehicle. While most of us don’t intend to go out and drive under the influence, sometimes it does happen. In most cases, we had that one last drink that barely put us at or over the legal .08% limit. When we’ve have had too much, lack of judgment can kick in and the result might be what we never expected to happen – a DUI arrest. Sometimes we get that emergency call and decide to drive. We might have pulled over to sober up, but still got charged with a DUI. Whatever the situation is, we did something that we wish we could take back, and now we have no choice but to deal with the consequences.
I help defend people who made a judgment error. We are all humans, and we all make mistakes. Most of my clients are good people who are facing criminal prosecution and loss of driving privileges for the first time in their lives. There are so many questions and unknowns in a situation like this. It is a terrifying experience, and for many causes more stress than they’ve ever encountered.
