I’ve Been Arrested for DUI. What Happens Next?

A DUI arrest can be a highly traumatizing and confusing time. We’ve developed and collected a list of the 10 most commonly asked questions after a DUI arrest to inform and help guide you though this process.

Being arrested for DUI doesn’t mean that you are automatically guilty and should face harsh punishments. Many factors can lead to false readings on a blood alcohol tests. Sometimes police officers mistakenly assume you are intoxicated, when it fact you are not.

If you have been accused of driving under the influence, it is imperative that you immediately contact a law firm with a strong track record of defending these types of cases.

The Penalties are Strict for a DUI Conviction

If you are found guilty of DUI in California, you could be facing jail time and your driver’s license will be suspended. You will be fined and may have to attend an alcohol education program. These aren’t the only repercussions of a DUI conviction. You could risk losing your job and may jeopardize future employment, not to mention the fact that your insurance carrier may drop your coverage or charge you a much higher premium.

With such strict penalties for DUI, you cannot risk conviction.
