It's important to know what your options are in life. If you are ever pulled over and charged with an OUI or DUI, you need to know what to do. An OUI/DUI lawyer has solutions to share with you.
OUI vs DUI
There is a difference between OUI and DUI. One is operating under the influence and one is driving under the influence. Either involve charges because of being influenced by chemicals or alcohol. However, an OUI focuses more on operating heavy machinery while a DUI focuses on driving a vehicle.
Building a Case
A case needs to be built when you have been charged with being under the influence. By working with a lawyer, you learn more about the solutions that exist. This is a case-by-case situation and the only true way to learn what's available to you is to sit down and have a conversation with a lawyer. You then talk about what has happened and what needs to happen next.
The penalties in place for an OUI or DUI vary based upon the blood alcohol content as well as the number of offenses you have dealt with in the past. Your goal should be to reduce the penalties that you face. Otherwise, one mistake has the potential to severely alter your life. With the help of a lawyer, you have the opportunity to at least try and reduce the penalties.
