Hey guys (and gals), if you have a problem, you deal with it, right?  The same is true for a DUI arrest.

A DUI is a serious problem.  Treat it seriously.

A DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge means you probably got caught and there is evidence against you.  It is an arrest with fingerprinting and a criminal record.  However, there are things you can do—regardless of guilt—to take a sober step in a more positive direction.  One is to get legal representation.

Make sure the penalty fits the crime.  

There is a range of penalties for DUI, depending on the circumstances, and the prosecutors of this area are very professional at doing their jobs.  You are likely to get the maximum penalty if your rights are not properly asserted.  A defense lawyer can help you work with the prosecution to find a resolution best for everyone.

You do not have to make a bad situation worse by shutting down options.  Seek competent legal representation to help you deal with a serious problem.
