What to do if You’re Wrongly Charged with a DUI

Last updated 7 years ago

Getting charged with a DUI is a criminal offense in most states, and will land you in jail or stick you with hefty fines and the need for a DUI lawyer. Even if you are not driving under the influence, police officers can occasionally make the mistake of thinking you have been.

If you are wrongfully accused of a DUI, get a quality DUI attorney and check out our list of tips for how to go about handling your case.

  1. Don’t let your emotions run away with you: Getting angry at the arresting officer will not do you or your case any good. If anything, it will only lead to more problems down the road. Keep your cool, and try to remain calm, even when you are wrongly accused.
  2. Document your case: As soon as you get the chance, take out a piece of paper and something to write with, and record everything you can remember about the encounter with the officer for your DUI lawyer. The more small details you can record, the better.
  3. Get a DUI attorney: Contesting the law is a very delicate and difficult process, and you need a professional on your side. The sooner you hire a DUI attorney, the sooner he can get started on your case, doing away with your legal worries.
  4. Read up on DUI law: It never hurts to know a little something about your situation. Even though your DUI lawyer will handle the legal consequences of your encounter, it is best to know a little about what you’re going through so you’re not left in the dark during the proceedings.
