Successfully Defending a DUI Charge

The worst thing you can do is represent yourself against criminal charges or simply plead guilty. This will almost always produce a worse result than if you have experienced legal representation. The truth is, DUI cases can be won. Attorneys Attorneys at the firm know this to be a fact because they have succeeded in numerous difficult DUI cases.

In defending you, a criminal law attorney at The Bloomston Firm will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your arrest. Did the police have probable cause to stop your vehicle? Did the officer have reason to believe you were over the legal limit? Were the field sobriety tests and the blood alcohol test conducted properly? These and other aspects of your case could form the basis for a successful defense of the charges you face from a:

One specific penalty you face is having an Ignition Interlock device installed in your car. You could face this penalty after your first DUI conviction if your BAC was .15 or greater, if someone was injured, if a child was in the vehicle or if you failed to provide a BAC sample.

Your Driver's License

In addition to the criminal charge, a DUI arrest begins an administrative process that could lead to the loss of your driver's license. A DUI defense attorney will represent you in the administrative hearing, and will establish some facts that may be of use in the criminal proceeding. It may not be possible to avoid a license suspension, but the firm will try to avoid this possibility and even negotiate a shorter suspension period.

You have 10 days from the date of your DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing. If you fail to request this hearing, your driver's license will be automatically suspended, simply because you have been charged.
