A DUI arrest and conviction has the potential to disrupt your future. But at our law firm, we want to make sure the arrest and resulting consequences affect your future as little as possible. For this reason, there are several things you should NOT do if you are arrested for DUI to make sure the impending process goes smoothly.
- Do not miss any court dates—If you miss a court hearing or date, this could present issues with your DUI case moving forward. If you have a conflict that prevents you from going to your court date, make sure you change your hearing as soon as possible.
- Do not drive on a suspended license—Driving on a suspended license can result in elevated penalties for your DUI charge. Depending on your case, the court may view this as a misdemeanor, which can result in mandatory court fines, fees, and jail time.
- Do not disobey any court orders—It is always better to prioritize court orders over your personal life needs. If you do end up disobeying a court order, you will likely have to explain your actions in front of a judge later on, and it is not likely to go well for you.
- Do not forget to hire a DUI lawyer—Having a DUI lawyer on your side is one of your best assets when it comes to moving forward after an arrest for drinking and driving. We are here to help you at all phases of your case, so do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible for legal guidance.
