Why Hiring a DUI Lawyer is Crucial to Ensuring the Best Outcome for Your Case

Drinking and driving is one of the most serious crimes a person can commit. While each state has different laws that determine how many penalties a motorist will get if caught driving while under the influence, it is important to know that the drivers themselves also have rights that are often violated during a DUI arrest.

While some states have what are known as Implied Consent Laws, which means a motorist driving in that state automatically gives authorities permission to have their blood alcohol checked, others do not. Read thoroughly through our site to find your state and see if there are any implied consent laws. If you were arrested in a state that does not have these laws in place, yet were forced to have a breath, urine or blood test performed, you may have those results thrown out in court.

Hiring a DUI lawyer is essential when you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated. There are many details that motorists are unaware of that can lead to their detriment when arrested and many incidents in which officers violate drivers’ rights. If you were arrested without sufficient proof of intoxication on officer suspicion alone, your entire case may get thrown out, which is why it is absolutely critical to make sure you have a DUI defense lawyer on your side.

Your DUI attorney will investigate the incident and if they find any evidence that you were unfairly arrested, rest assured your charges will at the very least be reduced, but may very likely get completely wiped out.

A DUI conviction can have permanent negative damage on a motorist’s record, so the faster you speak with DUI lawyers, […]

Amanda Bynes in Trouble with Police Yet Again

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Amanda Bynes just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days. The former “What I Like About You” starlet had another brush with the law Sunday night after being pulled over by Los Angeles police for not having her head lights on.

Bynes had her license suspended Sept. 6 pending the outcome of several other traffic infractions she committed, including two alleged hit-and-run incidents and a suspicion of DUI arrest. Although she was driving with a suspended license on Sunday, police were feeling benevolent and let her get off on a verbal warning.

The actress hasn’t had the best of luck with authorities in the past few months. She was pulled over last March for talking on her cell phone while driving and sped off before the officer could issue a citation, was arrested for DUI in April, four days later was involved in one hit-and-run and the following month was allegedly involved in another.

The 26-year-old faces up to one year in jail if she is found guilty of the hit-and-run incidents. She is expected to be arraigned on the charges later this month.

It is unclear as to whether Bynes was able to get her license reinstated by the time she was pulled over on Sunday, but given such a short span of time, it is highly unlikely.

Although Bynes keeps getting in trouble, she keeps dodging bullets. Her luck may very well be attributed to the only wise choice she has made this year – hiring a top DUI lawyer.

Vikings Fullback Jerome Felton Apologizes for DUI Incident

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota – Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton has issued a public apology after being arrested for drunk driving.

Last Wednesday, Felton apologized at an optional practice for a DUI he incurred four days prior.

Felton was arrested by Eden Prairie police at a McDonald’s on suspicion of driving under the influence and for refusing to take a chemical test.

The NFL star said he regretted his actions, especially because of the negative press it has brought upon his new team.

“Everybody on this team and in this organization has been good to me and the fans have been great,” said Felton. “I love it here. I can’t put myself in negative situations that don’t have a positive impact on the team and the community. That’s something that’s very important to me and I just want to sincerely apologize to the fans, No. 1, the organization and everybody around the Vikings.”

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he was “extremely disappointed” when he found out about Felton’s DUI arrest.

“[…]When a new guy comes to the club and he’s a veteran guy and something happened like it did over the weekend, it’s very disappointing,” said Frazier. “It’s something we’ll have to deal with and have to address, but you don’t want that to drown out all of the good things that some of our players are doing and what they’re doing in the community.”

Driving under the influence is a serious charge, but it can be beat. If you have been arrested for driving while impaired in Minnesota, turn to a DUI lawyer immediately to discuss your options and file a case.

Woman Arrested for Second DUI in Alaska Within Two Weeks

PALMER, Alaska – A woman was arrested for her second DUI within two weeks last Thursday.

Palmer Patrol pulled over a 2011 Chevrolet Impala for driving too closely to the vehicle in front of her as well as for another lane violation. The driver, 39-year-old Amy B. Little, of Wasilla, was observed to be intoxicated and was taken into custody by authorities.

Officers later discovered that Little was out on bail for a separate DUI charge incurred on April 12 that she was awaiting to stand trial for. The new DUI violated the conditions of her release.

Amanda Bynes Fires Back Over DUI Accusations and Negative Press

People are still talking about Amanda Bynes’ DUI arrest, making her out to be the next Lindsay Lohan. But is all this negative press really fair? After all, Bynes wasn’t even proven to be intoxicated at the time of her arrest.

The former “What I Like About You” star was arrested on April 6 after crashing into a police patrol car. Sources claim the 26-year-old actress had been drinking at the Standard Hotel before getting behind the wheel but that she “never seemed drunk.”

Bynes allegedly does not know Lohan, nor does she think ill of her, but believes it is unfair that she is being lumped into the ‘bad egg’ category that many child stars end up in.

“She just thinks it’s sexist that the two are being compared. Men in Hollywood that get arrested for DUI’s don’t face the same scrutiny that women do and that is what really irks Amanda,” said an inside source. “She isn’t taking the DUI arrest lightly.”

Unfortunately, being arrested solely on suspicion of DUI happens all the time. Motorists around the country are taken into custody after an officer who only believes them to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs arrests them.

A larger battle then ensues between the plaintiff and the officer over what really happened, and unfortunately, it is usually the officer who wins unless the driver has legal representation.

If this has happened to you, rest assured that you are not alone. Contact a skilled drunk driving lawyer immediately to contest your charges and ensure the best outcome for your case.

Drunk driving lawyers work diligently to have your charges reduced, or better yet, wiped out altogether. Call to schedule a consultation with a drunk driving lawyer today.
