DUI and DWI

Each state in the United States has set a legal limit of .08% BAC- Blood Alcohol Concentration for driving under the influence of alcohol. If a driver is pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving, and their BAC level is .08% or above, they will be found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol. For commercial drivers the Blood Alcohol Concentration level is set lower at .04% and for drivers under the age of 21 there is zero tolerance granted and any amount of alcohol found in their systems will be grounds for a DUI arrest. DUI arrests are a serious driving violation and must be handled with the utmost care, including retaining a DUI Attorney.
When you find yourself faced with a DUI arrest, it is emotional and traumatic, on top of the warrants given and points that will be added to your DMV point record. There is most often an overnight stay in jail. There are expensive fines. Your insurance rates go up. DUI and DWI attorneys can help. These are specialized attorneys who work in the defense of the DUI driver.
