Our firm has devoted a significant portion of our practice to defending people just like you, who have been charged with a DUI. You may not need a lawyer for some infractions you sustain, but when faced with a DUI charge, you need a lawyer! The consequences of such a charge can be unsympathetic, and you will need a lawyer to protect your rights. This can be a stressful time for you and your family, and it requires the skill of an experienced lawyer to make the consequences as minimal as possible.
Most people do not know their rights, especially concerning a DUI. This is the primary reason for hiring a defense lawyer. We will answer all of your questions and work diligently to reduce the costs and penalties you could endure. Without a qualified lawyer, you may not know what to do with impending jail time, expensive fines, or a treatment program. You also take the risk of a suspended license or losing it for a period of time. With a competent and certified lawyer, you have a much better chance of maintaining your driving privileges and avoiding jail time.
Do you know the proper protocol for officers involved in a DUI arrest? Many people are unaware of their rights in this instance, which is further reasoning for hiring a lawyer. Often times, proper procedures are not upheld during the arrest. Police officers make mistakes, and your lawyer is in place to follow through on all the evidence and laws regarding your case. We will inquire and evaluate the field sobriety tests used, as well the results of your breathalyzer and blood alcohol content tests.
We will leave nothing to chance when it comes to your case. We will work meticulously to put this stressful time in your life behind you, with as little costs and consequences to you as possible. We want to make sure your arrest is supported with proper evidence. Without the proper evidence, we have a good chance at getting the charges reduced or dismissed all together. Without a competent attorney, you have to learn the law and apply it properly to your own case. This is not in your best interest.
Hire a Lawyer If…
Joey Gilbert and Associates can answer these questions for you. DUI, or Driving Under the Influence, is a term that refers to a person who is impaired by any type of drug, including alcohol, illicit drugs, or prescription medication, and has physical control of a vehicle. Therefore, it is very possible that if you are under the influence of a substance besides alcohol, and are in control of a vehicle, you could still potentially be charged with a DUI.
