Understanding Your DUI/Drunk Driving Charges

When we sit down to discuss your DUI/drunk driving criminal charges, there are a few questions that need to be answered:

  • Was this your first DUI/drunk driving offense under this area of the law?
  • What happened to cause the officer to pull you over?
  • What happened after the officer stopped you?
  • What field sobriety tests were given?
  • What statements did you make?
  • How will this change your life?

It is important to understand your rights involving a suspected DUI/DWI/OWI stop. If there was no probable cause for the stop, your DUI/drunk driving case may be dismissed. Other questions to ask include: Were field sobriety tests or preliminary breath tests administered on the street? Was there a breath test given at the police station? Were you advised of your chemical test rights? Were Miranda warnings given? What was discussed between you and the police?
