Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges
DUI (driving under the influence) is not merely a moving violation traffic ticket — it is also a misdemeanor crime. A conviction goes on your criminal record and affects your Oklahoma driving privileges. We defend clients on both the administrative license suspension and the criminal case. We aim to dismiss the charges by challenging the basis for arrest and the evidence of intoxication. Our defense lawyers are prepared to defend you at trial if we cannot negotiate a favorable outcome.
We have experience with all types of DUI charges, including first-time DUI, repeat offenses, underage (under 21) DUI and refusing the breath test. We have also defended actual physical control (APC) cases, in which clients face all the penalties of DUI even if they were not directly observed to be driving. Under Oklahoma law, you can be charged simply by sitting behind the wheel of a car with the motor running or the keys in the ignition. We know how to fight these cases.
You Need To Know What Is At Stake
Many people fail to realize why hiring a proven criminal defense attorney is crucial. We will collect and review all of the evidence: that which is against you and that which will help your case. We will also make sure that witnesses are challenged when they need to be in the way that will help your case.
The top reason to work with a dedicated professional is that many charges can result in jail or prison time. If you are proven guilty or accept a plea bargain that does not give you the necessary protections available to you, you may also lose your rights and privileges.
These rights and privileges include:
- The right to carry a firearm, even if it is part of your job.
- The right to vote.
- The right to see and parent your children.
- The right to live in certain places.
- The right to get a decent job that pays a living wage.
One of the main things that sets US courts apart from other countries is that here you are presumed innocent. You must be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We are here to ensure that whenever and wherever there is a reasonable doubt it is presented.
