We can help with all types of crimes.

Drunk driving and traffic offenses

You do not have to be a hard drinker to get picked up and arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.  You cn be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Depending on the severity of your traffic violation, this charge may result in suspension or loss of your driver's license, a mandatory minimum jail sentence and, for third offenses, a felony conviction.

We argue to keep the drunk driving charges off your driving record, keep you out of prison and minimize fines. We explore whether the police officer had probable cause for making the stop in the first place and if the breathalyzer test was administered properly. Whether you are a first-time offender or not, we fight to protect your rights and to reach the best possible result in court.

Other kinds of traffic offenses include:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Road rage threats
