How An Experienced DWI Or DUI Attorney Can Help
Being charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is something most people never expect and yet, a scenario that a lot of people find themselves facing. I have been serving the Moultrie community for over 30 years. In my experience, I have seen how a qualified criminal defense attorney can make all the difference when fighting DUI charges. At Joseph D. Weathers, PC, I am passionate about fighting for justice on behalf of my clients.
What You Should Do If You Are Arrested For A DUI
If you are arrested for driving under the influence, there are definite steps to take that can help you and your criminal defense lawyer prepare a defense for your case.
- Pay attention to the details of your arrest and try to remember as much as possible
- After you have been arrested, do not volunteer any additional information without an attorney
- Request an ALS (administrative license suspension) hearing
- Hire an experienced defense attorney
Hiring an attorney as soon as possible will help ensure that your rights are protected. An experienced DUI attorney can help you properly file a request for an administrative license suspension hearing. This is a hearing to determine if your license should be suspended. You must ask for this hearing and a failure to do so will have consequences. Your attorney is allowed to attend this hearing on your behalf.
What To Expect From A Criminal Defense Attorney
If you are arrested for a DUI or DWI, an experienced criminal defense attorney will review the facts and circumstances of your case. In our American justice system, the police have very specific rules and requirements for accusing someone of a crime. There are specific police procedures in place to protect innocent people from being accused of a crime. The breathalyzer tests used must be in proper working condition. Evidence must be collected in a manner that protects and preserves the rights of the person being arrested. At Joseph D. Weathers, PC, my legal team investigates every aspect of each case to make sure that your rights were not violated.
