Defending Your Drunk Driving Claim

At M. Qader A. Baig & Associates, LLC, we conduct a meticulous investigation of the facts to ensure but the most strategic defense for your drunk driving claim. With the right evidence and the tenacious approach of an experienced DUI lawyer, your DUI charges may be reduced or dismissed entirely.

We have a clear understanding of the distinct ways in which a DUI conviction can be made. Either the state must prove the driver had an 0.08 grams or more blood alcohol concentration within 3 hours of driving ("per se" violation) or the state must prove a DUI by showing the driver was "less safe" to drive due to the effects of alcohol and/or other intoxicants ("less safe" violation). In either case, Attorney Baig will explore any and all violation of your rights and be prepared to meet the challenges of the prosecution at every turn.

While underage charges and multiple DUIs involve additional challenges, the penalties for a first offense DUI are still serious. They can include:

  • 10 days to 12 months in jail
  • Up to $1,000 fine
  • 12 months probation
  • 12 month long suspension of your driver's license
  • 40 hours of community service
  • DUI defensive driving school
  • Alcohol evaluation and treatment, if necessary
