Begin your DUI defense quickly.

We recently discussed the issue of passengers in vehicles having open containers and how the driver is the one who might face legal issues if this occurs. The issue here is that there is a chance that a driver who is in a vehicle with alcohol might be tempted to take a sip. We know that there are people who can avoid doing this, but others might succumb to that temptation.

If you are stopped by a police officer and have open containers or give them reason to think you've been drinking, you might be in for a big shock. You could be arrested and charged with drunk driving. This is a very serious matter that must be treated accordingly.

One thing that you must remember about drunk driving charges is that you might lose your ability to drive. A driver's license suspension is common in these cases. This can come from a court order in the criminal case, but it might also occur because of an administrative ruling. Being able to address both of these is challenging; however, it is vital if you are in this position.

When you are working on your defense, look at any possible aspects of the prosecution's case that you might be able to call into question. This isn't always easy because some cases don't leave room for questioning. We are here to help you review the options that you have for your defense. You shouldn't face these charges alone. Instead, we are here to stand by your side and ensure that your rights remain intact.
