Making the system work for you. If you have been charged with a DUI, the courts/prosecutors are going to require you to jump through some hoops during the process. Often, some sort of evaluation or rehabilitative service is required by the court. Chemical evaluation and chemical treatment experts have become a cottage industry of the courts and it is important to know which programs are suitable for your case and which are not. Consequently, we know which treatment experts will treat our clients well, and which ones will act like a rubber stamp. We make sure that our clients get where they need to go.

We represent clients at every step, from arrest to DOL hearing to the final result. To discuss your legal needs with an aggressive, experienced legal team, contact our office today.

DUI? Things you SHOULD Know:

  • Stay calm.
  • Be polite, but don’t answer any questions or make any admissions about drinking alcohol.
  • Don’t perform any Field Sobriety Tests.
  • Ask to speak to an attorney.
  • Take the breath test back at the station.

Once you have been arrested for DUI, the Courts and Department of Licensing (DOL) immediately commence legal action in an effort to suspend/revoke your license and possibly put you in jail.

  1. Brief explanation of Court Action:
    • Your first appearance in court will be at a hearing called an arraignment. The purpose of your arraignment will be to enter a plea of not guilty. The court will impose conditions on you that will remain through your next court date. It is important you have an attorney at this hearing so that your best interests are represented because the judge has the option to take you into custody and set bail.
    • The maximum penalty for conviction of DUI is 364 days in jail and/or a 5,000-dollar fine. The mandatory minimums for a first time offense will be at least one day in jail and about a 1000-dollar fine depending on your breath test/refusal.
    • Generally speaking, a DUI conviction will involve fine, a license suspension or restriction, drug and alcohol evaluation and follow-up, attendance at a DUI victims panel, ignition interlock device installed in one’s care for one year and high risk/SR-22 insurance.
  2. Brief explanation of DOL Action:
    • Each individual who is charged with DUI has 20 Days to request an administrative hearing with a DOL hearing officer or their privilege to drive will be suspended ranging from 90 days to two years depending on the breath test /refusal.
    • The purpose of the DOL hearing is to determine whether the arresting officer followed the proper administrative procedure during all points of the investigation. Failures by the arresting officer to follow proper administrative procedure may result in no license suspension by the DOL.
