Driving Under the Influence: A First Time Offense

If you’ve been arrested with a first time DUI, you may feel humiliated, not knowing where to turn or what to do next. Yet, if you want to ensure that you are represented well, it’s imperative to keep quiet, complying with the terms of the arrest, at least initially. Next, as soon as you can, write down every detail of your arrest. Once these details are noted, contact an experienced DUI attorney. Without a doubt—a skilled DUI attorney is your greatest line of defense against the technical and complex charges of driving under the influence.

Ask Yourself:

  • What was your weight on the day of the DUI charge?
  • If you were drinking at a specific location prior to driving, write down where you were. If you were at multiple locations, it’s best to list those according to where you were first, second, etc. Any receipts showing the time at which you were at each location should be gathered and noted. In addition, be sure to write down why you were at each location.
  • Did you take any medications the day of your DUI charge? Can you list the medications taken, along with the dosage and the time?
  • Can you recall the alcohol content of the beverages you consumed? Were you drinking wine by the glass, or beer by the bottle? If you drank from a specific mug at a restaurant, how many ounces does the mug hold? (this may require a phone call to the restaurant).

While these details may seem irrelevant, they are powerful for your defense—when in the right hands.
