Drunk driving charges are matters that mustn’t be ignored, even though it is fully understandable that you might want to just pretend that the incident never happened. We know that you might want the charges to just go away. The bad news is that this isn’t likely going to happen. The good news is that drunk driving charges come with the right to present a defense, just like any other criminal charge.
We know that you might have some questions about what you can do. You might want to know what options you have. Even if you acknowledge that you were drinking and driving, you can still take action. One of the first things that you need to do is find out what rights you have, such as the right to not answer questions or make statements unless your attorney is present, so you can ensure those rights are protected.
Even on a first offense for drunk driving, you can face 90 days to 2 years without your driver’s license. The suspension or revocation period you face increases with each subsequent offense. This is only one of the possible penalties you face, so you can see why working on your defense is vital.
As you work on your defense, don’t get stuck with thinking only about the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) percentage associated with your case. You also need to think about the events surrounding the stop and the arrest so that you can determine if there is anything amiss that might be beneficial for your defense. We can help you go over the entire situation to determine what options we have.
