At one point in time or another, everyone has celebrated a special occasion in their lives. While many can have one glass of champagne and walk away, others end up drinking more than they should and find themselves in trouble with the law. If you were recently pulled over on suspicion of DUI, avoid making one of these 3 costly mistakes in your case.
1. Attempting to Run
Trying to outrun the law is never a good idea. If you did something that got you pulled over in the first place, you need to deal with the consequences now and let your lawyer help you out when in court. Running from the cops will get added charges put on you. Instead of fighting a DUI, you will be fighting a fleeing and alluding and the DUI. Remain put at all costs.
2. Telling Your Side of the Story
Many people tend to talk when they get nervous. While this might be completely natural, it is also quite detrimental to your case. Anything you say could end up coming back on you in court proceedings. You are better off not saying anything at all and waiting to speak with your OUI / DUI lawyer first.
3. Not Calling Your Attorney
DUI's are serious charges and need to be treated as such. Whenever dealing with any type of criminal matter, you need to have a licensed attorney on your side handling your case. The only call you need to make when picked up on a DUI is to your attorney.
