Our office is open and available for remote video and telephone consults. We are set up to represent you remotely VIA Zoom and are still here to help with your legal options during this time.
A Resource is a tool that you use to help yourself. It is an aid and to my way of thinking, an educational aid. You use it to learn so that you better understand what it is I am talking about. The area of DUI has progressed from socially acceptable drinking to socially acceptable jail time. You need to know your rights and what it is that you are facing. It gets very complicated and you need all of the help you can get. You need a lawyer! Check out the law, the penalties and what it is that you are facing. Do not think that just because it is your first time that you will have no problems. And do not think that the Courts or the DMV are going to feel sorry for you and cut you some slack. Read through these pages and then call me. My practice is in the business of helping people charged with DUIs. You are entitled to your day in Court and the protection of the law. You have the right to confront the system every step of the way—your accusers in particular. You have the right to challenge those who complain about you, i.e. the police or some citizen who claims you were driving erratically. Just remember what Justice Scalia of the U. S. Supreme Court said in Crawford vs. State of Washington: “Dispensing with confrontation because testimony is obviously reliable is akin to dispensing with jury trial because a defendant is obviously guilty.”
