Can You Keep Your Driver’s License After A DUI Charge?
Misconceptions surrounding driving under the influence (DUI) charges are nearly as common as they are for impaired driving charges. If you face charges related to drunk driving, there is much at stake. Although some people may believe you can represent yourself in court when facing a DUI, an experienced attorney can help you make a case for protecting your driving privileges.
If you got pulled over for drunk driving and your Breathalyzer results show your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over the legal limit, you only have 30 days to request an administrative hearing where you can protect your driving privileges.
The Law Offices of Zachary J Burkhalter, PC, will help you work quickly to explore every possible angle of defense.
