Help, I May Lose My License!
Your ability to drive may be affected by a DUI arrest. Once you retain our firm we will immediately request an administrative hearing in an effort to prevent you from losing your license. Time is of the essence. You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request this type of hearing. Although self representation is permitted in an administrative hearing, it can be a frustrating and complicated process.
What if My Loved One is in Jail for a DUI related Offense?
If someone you know is in jail because he or she has been arrested for a simple DUI, DUI manslaughter, DUI with property damage or DUI with serious bodily injury, contact our firm so we can schedule a jail visit for a free case evaluation. We will request a bond hearing and fight for a lower dollar amount so that you can afford to bond your loved one out of jail.
What should I do with My Companion Traffic Citations?
If you have been arrested for a DUI related crime, chances are you have been cited for other non-criminal traffic related offenses. These traffic citations should be handled with your DUI. Although these citations may appear to be the least of your worries, great care should be given to resolving them. Often times, the citations are the basis for the initial stop that led to your arrest. Our experienced DUI attorneys will evaluate your case to determine if the officer who arrested you had a legitimate reason to stop you in the first place. A bad stop can provide a basis for a Motion to Suppress or Motion to Dismiss.
How Will My Traffic Citations Affect My Ability to Drive in the Future?
You should know that traffic citations can have a direct effect on your ability to drive. If you receive a certain amount of points within a specific time frame, the Department of Motor Vehicles may suspend your driver’s license. Additionally, your insurance rates can increase. Contact our attorneys to handle your traffic tickets so that you can minimize the risks of losing your license and/or paying increased premiums for automobile insurance.
