What Exactly Does a DUI Defense Attorney Do?
The most important thing to remember about a DUI defense attorney is that they work for you. A good DUI lawyer will represent you, your family, and any other victims in the case. This includes passengers, pedestrians, and motorists, as well as anyone else who was injured or affected by the drunk driving incident. An experienced criminal defense attorney will gather all evidence and information required to demonstrate that the incident was not your fault. He or she will conduct an investigation into all aspects of the case and ensure that the police were properly trained and did everything possible to ensure that you are convicted of the crime. This includes photographing the scene and gathering any evidence that may help prove you were not drunk.
A person who is legally drunk, for example, will usually receive a DUI conviction and a suspended license. A citation will be issued to anyone who is driving drunk but has a blood alcohol level of.02% or less. An experienced DUI defense attorney will protect your rights and handle your case professionally. This means that unless it is relevant to the case, he or she will never discuss anything with the prosecutor or the judge. They will not speak for you outside of the courtroom.
What Happens If You Get a DUI?
DUI penalties are severe. It makes no difference if this is your first or fifth DUI. The outcomes are the same. Your record will follow you for the rest of your life, and driving while impaired is illegal. When you get a DUI, the first thing you should do is contact a DUI lawyer right away. If you do not, you may lose the opportunity to have your charges reduced or dismissed. DUI charges are classified into several categories. The most common type of DUI is a first offense, and you will almost always receive a first offense.
A first DUI is treated differently than a third or fourth DUI. For example, if you are charged with aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated vehicular assault for the third time, the prosecutor may charge you with both. These are much more serious charges, and you may be charged with a felony. Third-time DUI cases can be extremely complicated, so you should consult with an experienced DUI attorney.
