DUI Driving Under the influence


A DUI is a serious charge, and convictions may result in several years in prison, huge fines, or both incarceration and fines. DUI charges are highly technical and require a deep knowledge in the area. A lawyer who practices this specialized area of criminal defense will review the facts of your case, explain your options, and advise you of the possible consequences. But for the best possible defense, you should speak with a local attorney familiar in the specific judicial system your case is presented before. Local criminal defense attorneys know how local judges and local prosecutors work, and can use that knowledge to better represent you.
