First Time and Repeat Drunk Driving Offenses

  • For those charged with DUI/DWI for the first time, there’s a lot more at stake than you might first imagine. First-time offenders may face a $2,500 fine, revocation of license and up to one year in jail.
  • second drunk driving offense that occurs within 5 years of the first offense may carry a mandatory jail sentence, depending upon your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level.
  • A skilled attorney may be able to help you reduce the severity of these harsh penalties and in some cases, even get your case dismissed.

Attacking Procedure

  • It is the job of prosecutors to prove their case against you. We examine every aspect of your DUI case, from the stop and the administration of field sobriety tests to the actual arrest.
  • If proper procedure was not followed – if there was no probable cause for stopping you, if you were not informed of your rights or if the Breathalyzer test was not correctly administered – the state’s case against you becomes seriously compromised.
  • We have helped minimize negative outcomes for our clients by attacking police procedure and uncovering lapses in protocol.

Taking a Proactive Approach to Serving Men Charged with DUI/DWI

  • We want to provide our clients with every opportunity to turn a bad situation around. That is why we take proactive steps to enroll clients in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or the Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP).
  • The courts look favorably upon those who take steps to control a potential substance abuse problem, and our clients are getting the help they need to get their lives back on track.
