Helping You Understand Your Options
After you’ve been arrested on suspicion of DUI/DWI, you must act quickly to protect your driving privileges. If you agreed to take a Breathalyzer with results showing that you were over the legal limit and you are a first offender, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended for six months (statutory summary suspension), unless you take action. If you did not blow, the statutory summary suspension is one year.
Contact Paul G. Chiligiris, Attorney at Law, to learn about your options. If this is the first time you have been charged with DUI, you may be able to keep your license by participating in a class and court supervision program, which will keep the charge off of your record. Or, you may be able to get an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle that monitors your blood alcohol content.
Paul can also help you fight a DUI conviction. He will analyze the details of your arrest and determine if the traffic stop and breath test were performed properly. You may be able to have your charges dropped or penalties reduced if procedural errors occurred.
