Drunk driving charges are often the result of a single bad choice. You might have thought that you were fine to drive when you left the bar, but the effects of the alcohol hit you a few miles down the road. You only wanted to get home so you kept on going. Your heart probably dropped into your stomach when you saw the police car behind you with the lights on.
Unfortunately, this is one of those cases in which you might have to live with the effects of that bad decision. If you aren’t disputing the drunk driving charge, we can help you to learn if there are any ways that you can reduce the severity of the penalties you have to face.
The fact of the matter is that many penalties for drunk driving convictions are automatic. Still, there are many that might be up in the air. We can’t let you know what is possible in your case until we review your case so we can see what circumstances are present.
Once we start to look into your case, we can help you evaluate your options for a defense. This might mean that you have to make difficult decisions, but you are the one who has to decide the direction of your defense.
Whether you are trying to avoid having to spend time in jail or need to find out if you will need an ignition interlock, we can help you find out what might be possible. Just don’t put off getting started too long. You don’t need a rushed defense.
