When charged with a DUI (whether it's your first or a repeat offense) you face heavy fines, court costs, the loss of your driver's license, increased car insurance, DUI classes, community service, and possible jail time. It can also leave you with a permanent criminal record, which can severely impact your future by preventing you from finding work with certain employers.
Unfortunately, many people who are facing DUI charges never bother to consult with an attorney about their rights.

If you took a breathalyzer test after being pulled over by police, we can challenge the results of the test. Was the device properly maintained and correctly calibrated to ensure accurate results? Was the test administered by an office who was certified to do so? And was the test performed in an ideal environment? Were proper protocols followed during the breathalyzer test? If you performed any field sobriety tests, we can challenge those as well. Were they conducted in the correct and appropriate manner? They can yield inaccurate results if they aren't handled correctly.
