Myths about Drunk Driving

One of the most common myths about drunk driving arrests this that if you are arrested you must be guilty and the best thing to do is try to plead it down and hope for mercy. I disagree. I am an attorney that believes that the best thing you can do it fight it. Defend it with a zealous advocacy is what I do. There are numerous defenses to the drunk driving arrest. Just to name a few you can challenge the stop, challenge the arrest, challenge the evidence, challenge the breath test, challenge the blood draw, challenge procedure, and if all else fails you can take your case to trial.

Remember, if you have just been arrested your self esteem might be low but you still have rights. You have all your Constitutional Rights.

A lot of attorneys take your money without trying to win your case

There are some attorneys I call “meet them, greet them, and plead them” as they take your money and do little for you. I am not that attorney. There may be some circumstances where it is in your best interests to take a plea to a lesser offense, usually a first offense when the evidence is overwhelming and you have done a full investigation and done the proper challenges to the stop and the evidence, but not always.

Even a first offense can have devastating lifetime consequences. Any drunk driving offense will stay on your driving record forever. If you get a second OWI your license will be revoked and you may never drive again.And of course, a third DUI in a lifetime is a 5 year felony. So, if you trust your life with a public defender and your divorce lawyer by all means good luck.

Facing jail is not a fun thing to go through. Yes, you can get up to 93 days in jail even for a first offense drunk driving. Fines and probation can have a devastating effect on you. Even a first offense Impaired driving involves license suspension. If you are convicted you will be in the system. You will have the Courts in your life controlling you. You owe it to yourself and your family to take every action to defend yourself properly.
