With the Waukesha Metro Transit and availability of taxis and ride shares, people in our area have plenty of options for getting home safely after a night of drinking. There really isn't any reason why a person should have to drive drunk but things might happen that lead to this. If you are facing drunk driving charges, make sure that you start working on a defense plan right away.
There are immediate impacts to this charge that aren't present in other charges. For one, you are facing the loss of your driver's license. This can greatly impact your life since you will have to rely on others for rides. If you have to drive for your job, there is a chance that you will have to find other employment. This might be difficult with an open criminal case against you. It may be even harder if you have a conviction on your record.
We realize that most adults don't leave home with the intention of driving drunk. When one thing leads to another and you do face a drunk driving charge, you should go into damage control mode right away. When you are pulled over, remember that you do have constitutional rights. You can remain silent and have your attorney with you when you are questioned. This might be beneficial to you since anything you say to the officers can be used in court.
Drunk driving defenses vary greatly, depending on the circumstances. We can help you evaluate your options so you can determine which one you feel is best.
