Driving while intoxicated (DUI) is a serious and punishable crime in every single state. With that being said, the law doesn't even require you to be intoxicated and/or drunk in order for yourself to be found guilty of DUI charges. Rather, you are determined impaired once you exceed the state limit. Since the blood alcohol limit is now standard, each state has a legal limit of .08%.
The consequences of a DUI are going to alter from state to state and are usually influenced by several other factors as well including; blood alcohol content, age, previous arrests, and whether or not any injury or death was caused as a result of the accident or DUI.
Deciding whether or not you should hire a DUI attorney is likely going to be a personal choice. However, it is important to understand the consequences of being convicted of a DUI and how hiring a reputable and respected lawyer can protect you.
What Does An Experienced DUI Lawyer Like Gary L. Rohlwing Do?
In a general sense, a DUI lawyer looks at the specific range of potential consequences for each of his/her clients and they ultimately try to determine how to proceed in order to minimize the consequences and the damage that is going to be done to their own clients. Therefore, often a DUI lawyer will access the clients situation and be able to determine quickly that the client will be able to get off with something as little as probation and/or be faced with very minor consequences. Because every DUI charge case is likely to be different, you are going to want to be sure that your situation is under control and is handled with the proper care.
This is where hiring the right and experienced DUI attorney comes into play. A DUI lawyer that is experienced is going to be able to properly access your individual case and determine the potential jail time and/or fines that you can expect if your case goes to trial. Because a lot of DUI law offices like ours only deal with DUI case files, you are going to get expert care because we happen to know the in's and out's of the entire process.
