A DUI is much more serious than a simple traffic violation. If convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record, you will lose your driver’s license and you could even go to jail. And the penalties accumulate and get worse with every additional conviction.
The penalties are simply too high, even for a first offense, for you not to obtain representation from an experienced defense lawyer.
What To Do If You’ve Been Charged With DUI
The first thing is — do not panic. There are many possible ways to avoid a DUI conviction or minimize the consequences. Salt Lake City DUI lawyer David Pedrazas understands the law and the many possible DUI defense strategies that can result in a dismissal of your charge or reduction to a non-alcohol driving offense. He will examine every aspect of your case, starting with the moment you got behind the wheel. The answers to any one of these and other questions could lead to a positive outcome for you:
- Did the police officer have probable cause to stop you?
- Did he or she properly perform field sobriety tests?
- Are the results of the Breathalyzer tests admissible in court?
- Were you informed of your Miranda rights?
