A DUI accusation can potentially have permanent consequences for your future, especially without proper legal representation. The majority of indivuals charged with a DUI are first-time offenders with no criminal background. Whether you have had previous convictions before or this is your first criminal experience, our attorneys at Drummond & Nelson can provide guidance and assistance for your case.
You will be considered driving under the influence if you fail a sobriety test or are found to have a blood alcohol level above 0.8%. Once this occurs, you will be read your Miranda rights and we highly recommend that you remain silent, as anything you say or do will be used against you in court. The court room usually feels very little sympathy for drunk drivers and any statement you make–whether truly under the influence or not–will only give the prosecution fodder to use against you. Instead, contact a criminal defense lawyer at Drummond & Nelson as soon as possible. We will help you navigate this difficult time and make sure that your rights are upheld.
The charges for a DUI depend on the case, but they can include fines, a suspension on your license or even prison time. Our experienced attorneys will review the evidence and help you make the best decision for your case.
We challenge the following tests:
- Breath testing
- Field sobriety testing
- Blood testing
Our attorneys have the expertise to challenge even the most daunting DUI test, and when claims of improper collection of evidence are appropriate. We will negotiate your case and potentially free you from charges and allow you to retain your driver’s license. The entire process can last several months, but we’ll do our best to expedite and ease every step. Contact our criminal defense attorneys at Drummond & Nelson today and we’ll help relieve your challenges.
