What to Do After a DUI Arrest
If you have been arrested for impaired driving, underaged DUI, vehicular homicide while intoxicated, or underaged possession of alcohol, it is important to act quickly. Evidence needs to be collected right away to help you determine if your rights were violated or if the traffic stop and breath tests were legal. You also need to make a timely decision on how to plead, and you should not make this choice without first speaking with an experienced attorney.
Hawkins Spizman Kilgo has helped defendants facing many different kinds of charges. We have also worked with professional drivers and with clients concerned about keeping their professional licenses, such as their license to practice medicine or fly a plane. We will assist you in understanding the stakes so you can decide whether to petition for dismissal; enter a plea; or work towards acquittal.
