Fighting A DUI Charge Makes Sense

The consequences for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs have steadily grown more serious over the past several decades. As a result, it is imperative that you enlist the representation of a skilled and experienced attorney who can defend your rights.

Too often, people assume that because they registered a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reading of .08 percent or higher, there is no reason to fight a DUI charge. This is simply not true. You need to know your rights regarding DUI.

Police frequently make mistakes in DUI arrests that can lead to dismissal of a charge. It is also possible to have charges reduced, which can help you retain your driving privileges and prevent your insurance rates from increasing. Facing drunk driving charges alone leaves you more susceptible to harsher penalties.

You need a lawyer who will fight to make sure your rights are protected and that you secure the best possible resolution to your case. We represent clients in Rankin, Madison and Hinds counties from our office in Brandon.
