Don't Let a DUI Ruin Your Summer Fun

The summer months mean that most people will spend more time outside enjoying the warmer weather. If you are planning to spend time outdoors at an event that will include alcohol, it is crucially important that you plan ahead so that you don't have to drive home.

The heat of summer coupled with alcohol consumption is a dangerous mixture. The heat can increase the effects that alcohol has on you. In the heat, you might find that you begin to feel the effects of the alcohol much faster and with much less alcohol than you are usually affected by. This makes driving much more dangerous and inadvisable than normal.

If you didn't have a designated driver and had to drive after you drank at the event, you might be facing a drunk driving charge if a law enforcement officer noticed that your driving wasn't up to par because of dangerous or illegal driving maneuvers. Even though you can't make the drunk driving charge magically disappear, you can take steps to minimize the penalties you will face. We can help you learn how you can do this.

One way that you can try to minimize the effects of the drunk driving charge is to present a defense that refutes the prosecution's claims. This might not be possible for every claim that the prosecutor makes, but we are here to help you discover what claims you can refute and how to refute them. We can help you as you try to piece together a defense strategy that calls the prosecution's points into question.
