In the last few weeks we have written quite a bit on the topic of drunk driving, and how it can legally affect you. We have talked about the incredible weight of a DUI charge for a repeat offender; we have talked about the flaws of the testing systems in place for people accused of driving under the influence; and we have talked about the many laws that are in play in any given DUI case, and how they can impact the penalties and consequences involved in the case.
All of which is to say that the legal side of a DUI case is, without question, a hugely important issue, and one that can’t be taken lightly by someone who is accused of drunk driving.
No matter who you are and no matter what the circumstances are in your specific situation, just being accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol will lead you down a life-changing path. The legal consequences are severe, but the personal, professional and financial consequences you will feel in the days, weeks, months and years that follow your DUI accusation will be equal to those legal consequences, if not more so.
This is why it is so important to get an attorney early in the DUI process. You have to start your defense as soon as possible to mitigate the potential damage to your reputation and your life.
