Attorneys Expose & Debunk 3 Myths About DUI

Let’s face it: Being accused or charged with a DUI can be one of the scariest times in someone’s life. There is a lot of information about what will happen to an accused offender after being arrested for a DUI. But, with so much information, how do you separate the real from the fake? The only way to know for sure is to listen to a well-respected and trusted DUI lawyer who has decades of experience handling diverse DUI cases. Here are 3 myths exposed and debunked:

Myth 1: You are automatically guilty of DUI at the time of your arrest.

Truth: When you are arrested and charged with a DUI it doesn’t equal a conviction. There are many factors that will determine how your case will be handled. As a U.S. Citizen, you have a right to fight for your rights and you have a right to an attorney. A skilled DUI lawyer can pinpoint certain factors in the police report that will provide a chance for a case dismissal, expungement or reduced charge.

Myth 2: If you B.A.C was over .08 you will be convicted of a D.U.I

Truth: There are many factors that will determine the outcome of your case. A high B.A.C. limit doesn’t mean you were under the influence at the time of your arrest. A skilled DUI lawyer will be able to pinpoint certain factors such as probable cause of the arresting police officer, if the police offer failed to perform a field sobriety test, the accuracy of the breathalyzer equipment, how your blood was stored after it was drawn and many other factors that will increase your chances of achieving a desirable outcome.

Myth 3- Any attorney can defend me.

Truth: When it comes to a serious charge like a DUI, you don’t want any attorney to represent you. Would you trust a brain surgeon to perform surgery on your heart? So, why would you let a bankruptcy attorney or any other attorney handle your case? DUI is an area of the law that requires specialized knowledge. A good DUI attorney will be able to examine all the facts, and help you build a solid defense, and in some cases get your case dismissed or expunged.

The truth is, every DUI case is unique, and the outcome of your case will be determined by certain factors and the DUI lawyer you choose to represent you. So, make sure you choose wisely. A competent lawyer may be the difference between jail time and your freedom.
