Get help to manage your DUI charges

Driving under the influence is never a good idea, but some people decide to do so anyway. Although it can result in a DUI or a serious crash, some believe that they'll be fine to drive and can even get home without getting caught.

The reality is that some people will escape without penalties, get home safely and be able to thank their lucky stars. For others, the police will step in and arrest them for drinking and driving.

When you're caught driving drunk, several things will happen

When you're caught and arrested for driving drunk, you can expect a few things to happen. First, you will be arrested and booked. You'll be able to reach out to your attorney at that time, and it's advisable to do so.

Next, you'll have a court appearance for an initial hearing to enter your plea and may lose your license. If you are convicted, fines, a prison sentence and/or alcohol education may be required.

Why should you get in touch with an attorney when you're arrested for a DUI?

The main reason is to protect your own best interests. An attorney will talk to you about what you should or should not say to the police. They will guide you through the process when you have to make a court appearance and can help negotiate a plea deal for you in some cases.
