Got a DUI? We'll help you get through it.
Things couldn't get worse, it seems. You got arrested for a DUI and it feels
as if your life is over. Are you going to be able to drive again? Are you
ever going to get over the shame and embarrassment of this offense? Are you
now known as a criminal by your state? Is your life completely over?
It does seem like a DUI can ruin your life. In each state, DUI laws are
getting harsher year by year. You can lose your license, pay a heavy fine,
spend time in jail and even have your car equipped with an ignition
interlock device for a really long time.
However, with the right mindset and a responsible attitude, there is hope.
This is going to be a stressful and complicated point in your life, but if
you act quickly and take an active role, you will get through this and
eventually be able to move on with your life.
The worst thing you can do is nothing. Don't wallow in your misery and
hopelessness - take control of the situation and get responsible.
1. Contact an experienced DUI attorney right away. You don't have to
plead guilty. You don't know all your rights or laws and regulations like an
experienced DUI attorney does. If you're unsure about where to start, I
recommend calling 1800 DUI LAWS (800 384 5297) or going to
http://www.1800DUILaws.com. This is a great service that connects you with
DUI lawyers near you. The consultations are FREE, and you deserve to speak
with someone who knows DUI laws, in and out.
I know that money may be an issue. It seems to be the case for many of us
these days. Speak to your lawyer about how you can work out the payments.
Many attorneys take credit cards or will offer payment plans. Your freedom
is worth the expense. Not to mention that a DUI will end up costing more in
the long run. By many estimates, you'll end up paying $10,000 - $12,000
with a DUI conviction. (This cost comes from increased car insurance, lost
work days, taxi charges if you don't have a license, DUI classes, fines and
feed.) If, after weighing all of the benefits of hiring an attorney you
decide you still cannot afford a DUI attorney, buy The DUI Manual and read
it immediately. It will at least get you up to speed about DUI laws in your
2. Set up your DMV hearing immediately. In many states, if you don't
set up your DMV hearing within ten days, you will automatically lose your
license for several months regardless of what the judge decides at the end
of your case. If you hired a lawyer, he or she will be able to help with
this aspect of your case.
Take an Active Role
Remember this is your DUI and you need to be abreast of what is going on in
your case. You need to be responsible and do what is best for you.
1. If you've made the wise choice to hire a DUI attorney, don't settle.
Shop around and interview attorneys to find which one is best for you. Ask
the attorney about his/her involvement in DUI laws, how many cases he/she
has handled and his/her philosophy about defending DUI cases. Make sure
that you feel comfortable speaking with the attorney. This will be a
months-long relationship, and you need to trust the person handling your
2. Write down everything. This can only help. Write down every single
detail of the incident: what you drank, where you were, what the officer
said to you, what you said to the officer - everything. Take note if they
gave you a breathalyzer or asked you to take a blood test. Take note of the
results of the breathalyzer or blood test. Know your B.A.C. at the time of
your arrest. Share this information with your attorney.
3. Keep an organized schedule. You need to know your court dates, so
get organized: keep a calendar, use post-its to remind yourself, or ask
someone you trust to remind you of your court dates - whatever it is you
need to do to make sure you don't miss your court dates.
Above all, you need to actively take care of this incident and take care of
yourself. This DUI can affect more aspects of your life than you may think.
While it may seem like this arrest is out of your hands, do you have control
over how you respond.
