You Have 10 Days to Act or Your License Will Be Suspended
Those who are arrested must request a hearing within 10 days or their driver’s license will be automatically suspended. This administrative hearing is separate from the actual DUI charges, and for both situations, you will need an attorney who can present your case intelligently and assertively. Our Birmingham DUI defense lawyers are well-versed in all types of impaired driving cases and charges and are known for their dedication to these matters.
Our criminal defense team will look at all aspects of your arrest, including:
- Was there probable cause to stop your vehicle?
- Was there reason to believe you were impaired?
- Did the police officer conduct themselves in an appropriate manner?
- Were you taking any prescription medications that cause visual symptoms of alcohol use without causing actual impairment?
- Were field sobriety tests administered correctly?
- Are there passengers or other witnesses who can attest you were sober?
Whether you are a first-time or repeat offender, we will work to form a successful defense on your behalf. We will also negotiate for you regarding sentencing and license suspensions.
Felony DUI & Vehicular Homicide
Certain circumstances can lead to felony DUI charges, including prior DUI convictions, being arrested in a school zone, and impaired driving with a suspended license or no insurance. If someone is killed in a drunk-driving accident, the driver can also face serious charges such as vehicular homicide, vehicular manslaughter, and criminal negligence.
In these circumstances, we will explore every possible option, including reduced charges, plea bargains, and alternatives to jail time. Attorney Richard S. Jaffe has contributed to a leading book about DUI and vehicular homicide and you count on his counsel, and representation from the rest of our team, for the help you need.
