It is never advised to face DUI/DUII criminal charges without guidance from a lawyer who specializes in DUI cases. Yes, you can legally represent yourself in court, but it’s never a good idea because of how heavy the burden of these consequences are.

For instance, there are several penalties that can include fines, jailtime, time away from family, residency limitations and loss of work. Because these consequences last far beyond the courtroom, we want you to contact us right way so we can strengthen your case and minimize the penalties you may be facing.
