Important Questions About DUI Charges

As soon as you see the flashing lights of a police car in your rearview mirror, the questions probably started swirling through your mind. What should you do? What should you say? What are your rights? What happens now?

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about drunk driving charges:

Is it really a serious criminal offense, or is it more like a speeding ticket — something I can just pay and be done with?

Don't be deceived. If you are convicted for drunk driving, it is a very serious matter indeed. You can't simply pay a ticket and move on with your life. Depending on the facts of your case, a conviction has the potential to result in jail time, the loss of your driver's license, heavy fines, dramatically increased insurance premiums, a criminal record and many other significant consequences.

Should I explain my side of the story to the police?

Absolutely not. Anything you say can and will be used against you. You have the right to remain silent, so use it. What you should do is text attorney Joe Laub right away at 775-230-4111. He typically responds within minutes, and he can personally represent you.

I think my case is hopeless. Shouldn't I simply plead guilty instead of bothering to hire a DUI lawyer?

You don't know that your case is hopeless unless you talk to an attorney skilled in this area of law. It's not uncommon for the police to violate people's constitutional rights or make procedural mistakes. If law enforcement did not have probable cause to pull you over, for instance, it may be possible to get the charges dismissed. The defenses available to you will depend on the unique facts of your case, so talk with us today.
