Learn what you can do to protect yourself in a drunk driving case

We recently discussed how field sobriety tests impact your drunk driving case. This isn't the only thing that can impact the case. In fact, everything that you do leading up to the traffic stop through the final disposition of your case can have an impact on what happens.

We know that you might not realize what kind of impact your actions can have on your case. If you are truly intoxicated, you might not be able to think clearly about the future. This is only human, so you shouldn't feel bad about it.

Of course, we want to help you to do everything that we can to preserve your defense options. In order for us to do this, we need you to know your rights and how to invoke them. This is especially important when it comes to your right to remain silent and your right to have an attorney present when you are being interrogated.

You might want to explain your side of the story. You might be tempted to "go off" when you are pulled over. In both of these cases, following what you want to do could spell trouble for your defense.

Even if you do forget to invoke your rights, you will still have defense options. We will review your case carefully to let you know what options you have. You might be surprised at what options might be appropriate for your case. Of course, you are in the driver's seat for your case. We can only work with what you are willing to have us do, so think carefully as we discuss your options with you.
