Driving Under the Influence (DUI / DWI)
Too many individuals charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI), particularly first offenders, simply go to court and enter a guilty plea. They either underestimate the severity of the charge or believe that retaining an attorney will be too expensive and won’t change the result in court. Unfortunately, they often discover too late just how much trouble and expense is associated with a drunk driving conviction: The suspension of one’s driver’s license, mandatory jail time, community service hours, alcohol evaluation, counseling and expense of having to miss work for probation is significant and costly.
At the Law Office of Lyle K. Porter in Lawrenceville, we are experienced in defending against DUI arrests. With more than 20 years of experience representing individuals who have been arrested for DUI, we are able to advise you on the latest issues concerning the admissibility of your test results, and outline options you may have been unaware of or haven’t considered. We will provide candid and honest advice on what issues exist in your case and work hard to obtain a dismissal, reduction or acquittal at trial. Our primary goals are always to protect your liberty and your driving privileges, and to ensure all of your rights are protected.
Our experience ensures that we are always trial-ready and trial-prepared. Avoiding a conviction is very important and this is particularly true for clients and in cases involving allegations of repeat DUI offenses. In these cases, the penalties and consequences of a conviction are serious, with prosecutors and judges requiring longer periods of confinement. You need an advocate who is ready to fight for you.
