Top 3 things to do when arrested for DUI.

If you are arrested for DUI, here are several things that you can do right off the bat to help mitigate your case.  First, you will want to send in your DOL hearing request form within 7 days.  That's the only way to get a hearing to protect your license and reserve all your options, like driving during the suspension with an ignition interlock.  Second, you will want to set up an alcohol assessment with a state-certified alcohol counselor.  We use only one counselor, he is the best, and we will help walk you through that process.  Third, you will want to get a DUI victim panel done, this will show the judge that you are taking the case seriously, because you really should.  It's a serious charge and must be handled with care.  Finally, you should obviously contact an attorney as soon as you get arrested.  We can help you through the next steps, there can sometimes be a long wait for the first court date and we can protect you from missing that date and getting a warrant for your arrest.  Remember, these things can help you get your case reduced when you do finally go to court.
