Last week, we wrote about how Super Bowl Sunday is statistically a heightened day when it comes to drunk driving offenses. Now that Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone — and the hometown Denver Broncos have raised the Lombardi Trophy — there will be plenty of stories that come out in the days ahead that highlight all of the DUI offenses that occurred during Super Bowl Weekend. It’s all part of the cycle.
But what doesn’t have to be part of the cycle is an accused individual suffering immense penalties without being properly defended. People who are arrested for driving under the influence have rights, and their case deserves to be defended, no matter what the people on the outside looking in may think of the case.
It is easy to paint DUI offenders as villains. It is much harder to actually consider that a DUI offender may be a good person who simply made an unfortunate mistake. No matter who you are, you’re going to make mistakes. Some just happen to be a bit bigger than others.
Drunk driving is one of these bigger mistakes, and the penalties that accompany such a mistake are too severe to ignore. You will need competent and experienced legal representation as soon as possible, and at Shazam Kianpour & Associates, we can help you with your DUI case. We can defend you in court, help you understand the intricacies of your case, and possibly help you receive reduced punishment — allowing you to learn from your mistakes while still giving you the chance to rebuild and recover from the offense.
