DUI and Traffic Violations

We'll Fight to Help You Keep Your Driver's License

Most people charged with DUI never intended to commit a crime. When you're out with friends, it doesn't take much to drink one beer too many without even knowing it. Nobody knows what .08 BAC feels like and it may have felt as if you were still in control. Getting charged with DUI doesn't make you a bad person. It means that you made a mistake that you shouldn't have to pay so dearly for.
