Criminal Defense Against Charges
It is against the law to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. If you are pulled over by police who suspect you are driving while intoxicated, various DUI tests will be administered, such as a
field sobriety test, breath test and/or
blood test. If the test results show you have been driving under the influence, you will be arrested for either misdemeanor or
felony DUI, depending on the circumstances of your case. A DUI arrest is extremely serious, especially if this is your
2nd or 3rd DUI offense, you were driving with a minor in the car, there was an accident, someone was injured or killed or you were driving with a revoked or suspended license.
