DUI affects a wide variety of people, and the consequences are serious. A DUI conviction may result in the loss of your license, expensive SR-22 insurance premiums, a hefty fine, time in jail, loss of your job, or difficulty obtaining a job. DUI law is detailed and complicated. You need a lawyer who understands it.

We will thoroughly investigate your case. We will carefully analyze the State's evidence against you. Afterward, we will meet with you to explain the strengths and weaknesses of your case and to advise you on how best to proceed.

Scope of Investigation: A thorough investigation of your case considers the following:

1. Was there probable cause for stopping you?

2. Are there search and seizure issues?

3. Was the field sobriety test properly given? How did you perform? Did the arresting officer record the test?

4. Were you offered a breath test in the proper manner? What was the result?

5. Was the DataMaster working properly?

6. Who was with you before the arrest? What do they have to say about your condition to drive?

Administrative Hearing: If your license is suspended at the time of arrest, you have 30 days to request an Administrative Hearing to determine if your license was properly suspended. It is possible to get your license re-instated. We can request, and conduct, this hearing for you.

Our objective: To achieve the best possible outcome for you under the law. In addition to defending against the charge, our philosophy is to address the causes of the underlying behavior which contributed to the arrest. This approach has led to many successes in both the courtroom and in the healing and growth of our clients as people.
