Heading out to the clubs at night is a good way to make some fun memories with your friends. You need to plan ahead to make sure that you aren’t going to end your night on a sour note by being arrested for drunk driving.

There are two trains of thought on drunk driving charges. One is that they aren’t a big deal. The other is that they are life-changing charges. Both of these have some truth, so make sure that you don’t get sidetracked into believing one or other.

Drunk driving charges are serious matters, but they don’t have the same penalties possible that a murder charge has. They can also change your life because you might lose your driver’s license and there is a chance that they could cost you your career.

It is important that you think clearly when you are facing drunk driving charges. You shouldn’t admit that you were driving drunk, but you shouldn’t make false statements. It might be best for you to invoke your right to remain silent and your right to have your attorney present when you are questioned.

We realize that you might not be thinking clearly when you are pulled over. Even the soberest person might be apprehensive when he or she is stopped by a police officer. The one thing that you need to realize is that everything you say and do is being watched and paid attention to.

When you are ready to work on your defense, we can help you to look into the possibilities so that you can come up with a plan you feel will work for your case.
