Traffic tickets range from infractions to misdemeanors, although a more serious violation can be charged as a felony in some cases. This is true for DUI violations, which are generally charged as misdemeanors but can become felonies on a fourth DUI charge or if you caused a serious injury or fatal accident. These are traffic tickets because the offender was driving a motor vehicle while impaired or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Consequently, our attorneys at WeFixTicket represent drivers charged with DUI. A DUI carries serious fines, loss of driving privileges andmandatory jail time for repeat offenders or for injury accidents or fatalities. You also face having to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees and court costs along withpossible impoundment of your car, required attendance at DUI assistance classes and substantially increased insurance premiums.
A conviction has collateral consequences as well, affecting your ability to find employment and may impedeyour career advancement or cause problems when seeking rental housing. For commercial drivers, it means loss of employment.
Representation at Administrative Per Se Hearings
Our attorneys at WeFixTicket who represent those charged with DUI are local, experienced attorneys who have enjoyed major success before the DMV in matters concerning revocation of your driver’s license. When arrested and charged with a DUI, your regular license is confiscated and you are given a temporary 30-day license. You have only 10 days to request an Administrative Per Se hearing before the DMV or your license will be suspended.
At the Per Se hearing, the issues are:
- Were you driving with a BAC of 0.08%?
- Was there probable cause to arrest you for DUI?
- Did you refuse to submit to a chemical test or fail to complete one after being asked to provide a sample by the police?
- If you refused testing, were you told that it would result in a one-year license suspension?
There are over 50 ways that our highly knowledgeable WeFixTicket defense lawyers can challenge a breath or blood test result. There are also instances where a refusal to submit to testing was reasonable, where the officer lacked probable cause to arrest a client for DUI or where statements regarding the consequences of refusing were not sufficiently given.
Criminal Court Representation
If we are successful at the Per Se hearing, we nearly always get the criminal DUI charges dismissed or reduced to an infraction or to a charge where no jail time is imposed, fines are minimal, you retain your license and the effect on your insurance is minimal.
If we have to fight for your freedom, our
attorneys have the trial experience to challenge law enforcement
observations of your driving conduct, personal demeanor and performance on
field sobriety tests that formed the basis for their believing you were
driving under the influence.
For clients involved in serious injury accidents or fatalities where drinking is alleged, we have had phenomenal success in getting the most serious charges against our clients dismissed or reduced.
In most of the trials our lawyers do handle, our clients are found not guilty so that no criminal conviction is on their public record, no fines are imposed and they suffer no collateral consequences.
Call WeFixTicket immediately if you have been arrested and charged with a DUI.
