We have all been told repeatedly not to drink and drive, but sometimes an individual can experience a lapse in good judgement, with disastrous consequences. Suddenly blue and red lights are flashing in the rearview mirror, and you’re reciting the alphabet backward while standing on one foot. Of course, there are worse things that could happen driving under the influence. And while an arrest is better than an accident and/or fatality, it can still pose serious challenges including steep fines, potential jail time, suspension of your license, and a blight on your record. For one night of imbibing and driving, you could be limited in when, where, and how you drive a motor vehicle for years, severely limiting your ability to earn a living.
Yes indeed, a DUI arrest can be very costly. But rest assured, an arrest is NOT a conviction. It is imperative to hire a knowledgeable and experienced advocate as soon as possible to begin working on your case. If your license has been suspended as a result of your arrest, an experienced advocate can try to help you regain it. We will use our years of training and experience to limit the costs to you, get you back on the road as soon as possible, and back into your life. We can fight that fight for you, while taking the stress of your DUI off your mind.
We know DUIs like the back of our hand, having worked on the opposite side of the playing field for years. For Mr. Whalen’s first two and a half years as a prosecutor, he worked under a grant from the Federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Program (NHTSA) to prosecute DUIs exclusively. He prosecuted, on average, fifteen DUI cases every two weeks. He also spoke on DUI litigation at multiple law enforcement and judicial conferences, and traveled to Colorado with police officers from multiple upstate jurisdictions and a Chief Judge to receive national DUI training.
That means we have some serious insights and experience on how to deal with DUIs and mitigate their fallout. If you’ve been arrested for DUI, you’ll want to hire an attorney with real world negotiation and trial experience, who knows DUIs inside and out. Let Mr. Whalen put his years of dedicated education, training and experience to work for you.
