We recently discussed how functioning alcoholics might not realize that they have an issue with alcohol or that this could be one of the reasons why they wound up involved in the criminal justice system. As hard as it is to come to terms with your own drinking problem, it is imperative that anyone facing drunk driving charges determine if an addiction is the underlying cause of the issue.
Addiction is a serious problem that must be addressed so that the person doesn’t continue drinking to excess and wind up back in jail driving under the influence (DUI) charges. This can happen when a driver has a very serious addiction to alcohol.
We know that your top priority right now is likely the criminal charges that you face. We understand that and will work with you to determine how you will address that problem.
There are many different things that we need to consider regarding the allegations against you. First, we need to look at the exact violations on which you were arrested, as these vary with the circumstances. For example, some drunk driving cases involve crashes that can lead to other charges on top of just impaired driving. If you had a very high blood alcohol concentration, you might face enhanced charges.
Even though some people might consider drunk driving charges as being fairly minor, they are actually pretty serious. If you hope to avoid a conviction, you must take your case seriously and work on a strategic defense that takes into account all of the circumstances surrounding your arrest.
