What To Do When Arrested for DUI
The experience of being arrested on any type of charge is a life altering event for most people. There are many who feel that an arrest on a DUI charge, e.g., is equal to a conviction but that is simply not the case, especially when you have the right attorney on your side fighting your DUI case in court. You should take this situation seriously and avail yourself of the best counsel possible early on in the case.
New Jersey (NJ) has some of the toughest DUI laws anywhere in the country but even in this State of strict enforcement and trials in part-time local courts there are attorneys that are able to win cases. The first thing to do once you have been arrested is to call a lawyer who specializes in your type of case. While in police custody, observe, take mental notes and then pass on all the information to the lawyer.
The biggest mistake that defendants make is in minimizing the effect or consequence of their arrest and assuming that they can just plead “Guilty” because it isn’t a big deal. A single DUI carries monetary fines, license suspension and even some jail time depending on the circumstances. If convicted then this charge is part of your permanent driving record. You absolutely need legal representation when facing any type of charges even if those are minor driving infractions.
