Swift planning is critical for drunk driving defenses

On Behalf of | Aug 3, 2018 | Drunk Driving

The warm months of summer are almost over, so you only have a limited amount of time to enjoy some of the outdoor activities that hinge on sunny and hot days. We know that you might not want to think about the leaves and snow falling, but those days are coming. As you celebrate the rest of summer and enjoy fun activities, make sure that you aren’t falling into the temptation to consume alcoholic beverages unless you know for certain that you don’t have to drive.

Drunk driving charges can make it difficult to enjoy your life. Just knowing that you have a criminal case pending might make it very hard for you to have any fun. Instead, you will probably want to spend your time working on your defense. We are here to help you evaluate the options that you have for this.

One thing that you need to consider is that there are consequences that don’t through the criminal justice system. The administrative penalties in these cases can be severe. You can lose your driver’s license after the charge but before you are convicted. If you are concerned about this, be sure that you take swift action after the arrest. You only have a short time to appeal the administrative appeal if you want to have any legal right to drive.

We know that all drunk driving cases aren’t the same. We will look at your specific circumstances and help you determine what options you have. This gives you a starting point for planning your defense strategy.
