Time keeps on ticking

What are you waiting for?

I've been contacted by people needing representation for  municipal arrests that occurred in November and December...

There were several reasons: 1) didn't think it was serious enough for an attorney, 2) didn't have the finances after the holidays to pay an attorney.

As to the first: Paying the ticket on a DUI just to "get it over with" is dumb. Paying a ticket results in a conviction and license revocation. Convictions also have sweeping future affect such as job applicant screening, loan applications, car insurance rates just to name a few. And a conviction for DUI causes your drivers license to be revoked for 6 months on a first revocation... with an additional 18 month restricted period if the test was refused or tested .15 or above.

To fight for driving privileges, and the only chance at avoiding the revocation, a request for administrative hearing has to be filed within 15 days from the arrest! And you must not get a conviction in criminal court!

A person can still drive during the revocation and restricted period if they install an ignition interlock on every vehicle they will drive, which is costly and very inconvenient.

As to the second: Times are tough. Consider the maxim: if you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur ... Red Adair

There are many aspects to arrests, too many to enumerate here, which may prove to lead to viable defenses if discovered by the trained legal professional. They are easy to miss and often missed by most attorneys.

Don't wait, call now.
