After you’re arrested and released on suspicion of DUI, it’s vital to speak with an attorney early on in the process for two reasons.
One, at this point, your case is already moving through the court system, going from law enforcement and investigators, to the district and city attorney’s office, eventually to a judge or jury on a trial docket. Having an attorney early on in that process to make sure that the way that that case moves is done fairly and reasonably.
The second reason is because DUIs present unique legal and factual issues, ranging from constitutional rights that we’ve had as citizens for hundreds of years to modern science behind breathalyzer technology, some of which has existed only for less than a decade. Consulting with an attorney to go over the unique issues and how they apply to the set of circumstances facing you, will help give you a focused, individualized approach to getting a fair resolution of your case.
