DUI and DWI Charges

Commercials, friends, billboard signs all state "Don't Drink and Drive." But life can throw some serious curve balls. Seeing flashing lights of law enforcement in the rearview mirror usually means that something is rong. You have been "caught" doing something, like driving under the influence (DUI), or driving while intoxicated (DWI).

In the moment, many questions may come to mind: What do I do? What should I say? What are my rights? What happens now?

A few things to remember, when dealing with law enforcement and possible DUI / DWI charges:

1). Stay calm and stay silent. If you are pulled over by law enforcement, say nothing. Remember, do not speak to law enforcement. Anything you say to law enforcement will be used against you. You have the right to remain silent. For your own good, stay calm and remain silent. Contact your attorney ASAP. Add Joe Laub's phone number to your contacts, so you can text him if you are pulled over.

2). Don't be deceived. A DUI or DWI is a serious criminal offense. It's not a simple matter of paying a ticket, like a moving violation. In a DUI or DWI case, the facts of the case will be assessed. Depending upon the circumstances, a conviction has the potential to result in serious penalties, such as

  • Jail time
  • Losing your driver's license
  • Heavy fines
  • A dramatic increase for insurance premiums
  • A criminal record

    These are serious and lasting consequences for DUI or DWI. Time is not on your side. Contact an attorney who can help you, who wants to help you, and who has the experience and legal acumen, plus a long list of wins for clients, Laub and Laub Law Firm. We have helped so many people in our local community get their lives back on track. We can help you too.

    3). Every case is unique. Even if you think that your individual case is hopeless, talk to an attorney who knows the law for DUI / DWI. When you talk to an experienced litigator, the defense they can build for your case will take in many factors - including constitutional rights and potential mistakes made during procedures. The defenses available to you will depend on your unique situation, the facts of your case, which is why it's best to immediately contact an attorney to discuss your case.

    Law enforcement has a lot of power when it comes to charging you with a misdemeanor or a felony. If detained, law enforcement will ask you questions. They will watch how you behave. They have a job to do. Law enforcement is not on your side, and they are not your friends.

    At the Law Firm of Laub and Laub, we are passionate about protecting you from overzealous law enforcement officers and harsh prosecutors. We know that the government's story is only half of the story - the other half is yours, and it deserves to be told.

    Retaining an Attorney: I'm Trusting You with My Life

    Fear must be addressed immediately when a client comes in regarding a criminal case. Facing the law is scary. An event occurred, creating a big problem in the life of the client. Help is now needed from an experienced criminal defense attorney to resolve the problem.

    At Laub & Laub, our attorneys will explain, "You're here, and you need to tell me everything you know about this matter. Whatever you say will stay within the four walls of this office, but you have to tell me everything, and you have to tell me the truth, and you have to tell me the stuff that you don't want to tell anyone else."

    Telling a false story or thinking that telling the best story is what the criminal defense attorney needs to hear is the worst idea. Sometimes a client thinks that telling a made-up story to the lawyer is how to handle the problem. The client may not want the attorney to have to worry about the bad stuff. For a criminal defense attorney to provide the strongest defense for a client, the defense lawyer must know the case better than the prosecution does. Be prepared to share everything with your defense lawyer.

    Remember, a criminal defense lawyer with years of experience has a way of finding out the truth about what happened. It is their job. An attorney has a lot of training through schooling and numerous years of experience trying cases in court. They are skilled litigators. It's what they do: find out the details because the facts drive the case. It is in the best of interest of the client to be brutally honest with the attorney.

    When you hire a private attorney because you need a criminal defense lawyer, you are paying for a best friend, someone to trust. That trust is the reason why the attorney / client privilege is the most important privilege that exists. Attorney / client privilege is sacred.
