Being arrested for drunk driving starts two proceedings. One of these is the criminal justice proceeding. The other is the administrative proceeding. These proceedings are both crucial for you to fight against because each can impact your life in different ways. We can help you fight against the administrative and criminal justice components of a drunk driving incident.
The administrative proceeding that you will go through has to do with the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. This is something that you should fight against so that you can keep your driving privileges. If you can’t drive, you might find it hard to get to work and make money or go shopping to get the things you need. Running regular errands might be very difficult because you will have to rely on friends and public transportation to get you where you need to go. In some cases, restricted driving privileges might be an option that helps you avoid losing your license by allowing you to still drive under certain circumstances.
When it comes to the criminal justice proceeding for driving drunk, you are facing possible time in jail and fines. Your defense strategy has to fight against the claims that the prosecutor is making. This can involve listing the blood-alcohol concentration you are accused of having, as well as your actions at the time of the drunk driving incident.
We know that having to deal with different proceedings can be difficult. We are here to help you work through both proceedings so that you can learn about your options at every turn.
