Protecting Your License After a Drunk Driving Arrest
Drinking is one of the most common social activities in our culture. We have glasses of wine with dinner, cocktails at happy hour and a couple beers while we’re watching sports. However, if you get behind the wheel after you’ve had a few drinks, you may be at risk for a DUI (driving under the influence) arrest.
If that is the situation you are in, you may be concerned with losing your license, going to jail, an inability to get a job because of your record, and increased punishments for the second or third arrest. New Haven DWI/DUI defense attorneys can help protect your criminal record and minimize the punishments you are facing. At the Law Office of Jack O’Donnell, L.L.C., we have 40 years of experience giving individuals the counsel they need to effectively work through the legal system.
Understanding the Legal Process
When you are arrested for drunk driving, there are two court processes you will need to navigate: the court proceedings and the administrative proceedings. Many people are confused by the bifurcated process, and they do not understand the purpose of each system. When clients contact us, we can help them understand the most effective way to work through the process, and we work to help them face the minimum punishments.
