Provide Your DUI Attorney with the Facts

So that you can mount the best defense possible, keep these items in mind:

  • DUI arrest – What are the facts about your DUI arrest? Did law enforcement go by the book in terms of a breathalyzer test and/or any blood work? Were you read your rights properly at the time of the arrest? In some cases, law enforcement messing up on even one iota of the arrest could cancel the charges against you, so make sure you give your DUI attorney all the information you know.
  • DUI mistake – Is there a chance that you were mistakenly tagged as being under the influence of alcohol at the time of your arrest? It could have been a case of having a medical episode (seizure, vertigo etc.). You may have also been on a prescribed medication that did not interact properly with one drink you had earlier in the day before driving. Yes, you are expected to know that taking prescription pills and drinking is not a good mix. Finally, if you had a passenger or passengers in your cab at the time of your arrest, did they report any issues regarding your driving? There is always the chance it was a mechanical failure with the vehicle that your driving appeared to be impaired.

When you’re facing the seriousness of a DUI charge and possible conviction, drive off with the right legal help.
