Police officers have specific criteria to watch for to determine if a driver is intoxicated. We recently touched on some of those markers. If you have been out drinking, you should realize that trying to drive home is something that can have a long-lasting impact on your life. We are here to help you if you are facing that possibility.

We understand that driving drunk is often a last resort. Maybe you were at the bar and didn’t plan on drinking but one thing led to another and you had a few beers. Now, you are facing the prospect of either being stuck at the bar or trying to make it home. You decide to try to make it home and then your heart dropped when you saw the officer turn on the squad car’s lights.

Now that you are facing criminal charges, you might realize your mistake. You probably understand that the laws are there to try to protect people from accidents that might occur when drivers are drunk. You might even accept that you have to face the consequences now.

Even if you know that you were driving drunk, you don’t have to just plead guilty and throw yourself at the mercy of the court. We can help you to determine if there are any other options that you have for resolving your case. Whether there are other options or not, we can help you to present your side of the story. We can help you to learn about how you might handle your case. We can stand by your side to make sure that your rights aren’t violated.
