DUIs and DWI's (or DWAI's)
are charges that bring many good people into contact with the Criminal Justice
system for the first time. As such, these proceedings may be downright scary.
There are long-term consequences including two years of probation, jail time,
high fines, community service and lengthy, time-consuming classes. The high
cost of insurance premiums and the loss of your driving privilege require that
you take steps necessary to help minimize the consequences of an unfortunate
decision. Many DUI cases are relatively straightforward but until the discovery
is reviewed and evidence gathered no one should take it for granted about the
outcome of these cases.
