A charge of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) is not a minor charge. It can lead to a conviction with a sentence of jail time, loss of your driver's license, and a record of criminal conviction. Further, the DUI conviction can also result in higher insurance rates, loss or denial of professional licenses, loss of jobs, negative references on background checks, and even negative consequences in divorce or child custody matters.
When you get arrested for DUI, you have the right to contact a lawyer. During the ten- to fifteen-minute observation period prior to the breath test or at the hospital prior to the blood or urine test, you may contact a lawyer. When given the opportunity to contact a lawyer, you should always take advantage of it. You need someone who will review the procedures used by the police and analyze all the evidence. You need someone who will fight for you.
