Anyone can get charged with a DUI. When charged with DUI, contacting an attorney as soon as possible is important. Typically, within seven days of the arrest, it is necessary to request a hearing with the DMV to preserve the ability to drive legally.
A DUI case has two separate and distinct battle fields. The first to usually arise after the dust settles following an arrest and release, is the fight with the DMV. That fight pertains to your driver's license. For many, that issue is paramount. The second fight is the Court case. There, at issue is everything from potential jail time to issues involving your license and the statutorily required alcohol evaluation and classes.
The Daniels Law Firm can help with any aspect of a DUI case. Whether it is the DMV hearing, the negotiation of an appropriate sentence or the trial of the case to a jury, the Daniels law Firm has done it many times before. Preventing the revocation of the license or suppressing of key evidence is likely only possible with an attorney.
DUI cases are scary and expensive. Though the issue of whether to give blood, do a breath test or refuse altogether is something that changes on a case by case basis, the one thing that never changes, and the one thing to always remember is that no one, not even sober people, pass roadside tests. When the officer asks you to step out of the vehicle and asks you to perform a series of silly tests, do yourself a favor and politely decline. Those tests are the officer's attempt to try and build probable cause against you. In short, an officer must have REASONABLE SUSPICION to pull you over and PROBABLE CAUSE to arrest you. DO NOT make it easier for that officer performing tests that cannot be passed.
