How do I seal my DUI conviction?

So, you've received DUI charges, and the prospects of beating the rap don't look good. Do you build a strong defense, or do you try to mitigate the damages of the conviction? Many drivers face DUI charges that have very few grounds for a strong defense and may believe that all they can do is simply accept the charges and try to cushion the blow. The good news is that are still options for those who do not have strong grounds for a defense, but these should never be the first option considered.

Can I get a DUI on a bicycle?

Most people understand from a young age that it is both dangerous and illegal to drink and drive an automobile. Not only does drinking and driving pose significant dangers to individuals who drink and drive, it also results in criminal charges quite regularly. What many people do not understand is that DUI charges are not necessarily restricted to automobiles. In some cases, an individual can receive criminal charges for riding a bicycle if they are impaired.

Be careful what you say in a DUI stop

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, but individuals still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking each and every day. Should you find yourself pulled over by police after drinking, you must be careful in what you say and do. Police officers have a great responsibility to protect the community, just as you have a responsibility to protect your own rights. So, how should you respond when the officer begins asking questions?

When is drunk driving not drunk driving?

Drunk driving charges are difficult to face, and in some cases, may come as a complete surprise. While most of us think of drunk driving as occurring when someone is physically operating a vehicle in motion while the driver is intoxicated, not all of these elements must necessarily be present in all cases. Depending on the details of the circumstances, an officer may give out drunk driving charges to someone who is not necessarily "driving" in the sense we think of it from day to day.

Is drunk driving justified if I'm in danger?

Drunk driving charges are never something you want to face, but, in some cases, driving while intoxicated is either beyond your control or the best of several bad options. While they are not very common, some defenses of drunk driving don't attempt to discount the charges themselves, but rather choose to justify the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Depending on your circumstances, an affirmative DUI defense may be your best choice.

Are there defenses to legitimately driving while drunk?

Drunk driving is rarely wise, but sometimes it's not what the arresting officer thinks it is. If you recently received drunk driving charges, it is possible that the circumstances change the nature of the violation, justifying your state behind the wheel. An experienced attorney can help you examine the specifics of your arrest to identify any factors that may justify an affirmative defense to drunk driving.
