A DUI arrest is a serious matter.  If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence, there’s a good chance you’ll face jail time, have your license suspended, and pay hefty fines – not to mention the potential hardships you may encounter at work, with your future career prospects, and personal relationships.  While some legal matters may be handled alone, a DUI arrest warrants the legal advice of a qualified DUI attorney who knows how to handle the intricacies of your DUI case.  And not just any criminal defense attorney will do.  Because DUI laws are highly centralized and specific, DUI cases are best handled by experienced DUI attorneys with specialized knowledge in this area, including knowledge of traffic laws.
