The DUI Legal Process
Getting stopped and arrested for DUI is a scary. Most times, you are arrested, searched and taken to jail. Your car is towed and impounded. You may be held in jail overnight without knowledge of when you will be released. You are told you have the option to blow into the BAC machine, but if you refuse, you’re told the DOL will suspend your license. You’re questioned but also told you can remain silent. Sometimes you’re driven home, sometimes you’re allowed to bail out – other times you might find yourself in front of a judge.
After a terrible night like that, you’ll feel helpless, scared and possibly even angry about how you were treated. You will need someone to talk to but you will want someone you can trust to keep things confidential. You’ll need a compassionate advocate; someone who has helped thousands of people just like you navigate the DUI legal landscape. That is where our office comes in.
Our office will answer all your questions. Questions like:
- Where is my car?
- Am I going to jail?
- Is my license suspended?
