If you are reading this page, chances are you or a friend or loved one has been arrested for DUI in the District of Columbia. You were likely released from the police station after going through an embarrassing, frightening, and outright humiliating process of getting booked and fingerprinted at jail. The police were likely cold and indifferent or even outright abusive. After what probably felt like a several hour nightmare was over, the police probably fed you with misinformation, gave you some paperwork you don’t understand, and sent you on your way to pick up the pieces of a night that went terribly wrong.
You probably have tons of questions:
Will I get fired from my job?
Will I lose my driver’s license or CDL?
Will I go to prison?
How much money will it all cost?
It is true there can be devastating consequences for getting arrested for a DUI in DC. Consequences for a conviction can be even worse. Its common to have these thoughts and feelings after going through such a traumatic experience. Its even common to panic—especially if you have a lot to lose. Its okay to feel that way and channel that energy into fixing the situation.
There is Hope
The truth is a DUI arrest (like any other problem in life) can be solved. The first step to solving the problem is recognizing you need help fixing it. Its may be your first DUI and you have no idea what to expect or how long the process will take. You’ve never been in this situation before and have no clue where to even start. The police gave you forms, and you are unsure whether there is something you need to do before your court date.
Or it may not be your first DUI but you are reading this page because you weren’t thrilled with the experience you had with your previous defense lawyer. They may have treated you like a number, ignored your phone calls, or just rushed you through the system like an object on an assembly line.
