Definition - What does DUI Lawyer mean?

Drivers arrested for operating a motorized vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) should contact a DUI lawyer as soon as possible. DUI lawyers specialize in prosecuting DUI cases and understand the laws of each state. Drunken driving can have severe legal and personal consequences for drivers including: high fines, license suspension and revocation, jail time, mandatory drug and alcohol education classes and probation.

If a driver has multiple DUI convictions or has caused injury or death to another driver while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs it is even more important to contact a DUI lawyer as soon as possible. DUI lawyers can help with a variety of DUI issues including:

  • Attempting to have the DUI charges dismissed
  • Reviewing whether the law enforcement officer has reasonable suspicion to make the DUI stop
  • Determining if the law enforcement officer had probable cause to make the DUI arrest
  • Reviewing all statements made while the driver was in custody and determine if any statements were made prior to the reading of the driver's Miranda Rights
  • Reviewing the procedures used to gather the blood, urine or breath sample
  • Reviewing all other DUI evidence and make sure it was legally obtained and can be used in court
  • Attending all DUI hearings
  • Filing all motions
  • Answering all DUI questions

DUI convictions are very serious. Talk to a DUI lawyer who can help you understand your rights and all applicable DUI laws. Finding the right DUI lawyer can help reduce fines, penalties and potentially jail time.
