The outcome of the situation when you face criminal charges depends on what you do from the beginning. DUI arrests are complicated. Every day and everything matters. A DUI lawyer who charges you a fair price can spend time on your case. Drunk driving can mean big trouble. Criminal charges are big trouble even if drunken driving is one of the petty offenses. A good outcome comes out of hard work. Good criminal defense lawyers gain every possible advantage for you. DUI lawyer W. Shane Jennings works hard to help you stay out of trouble, gain every advantage and stay out of jail.
You might think that you are in big trouble and there is not any way to save your license, keep a blemish of your personal record and avoid penalties. You may be in trouble but DUI lawyers such as myself know how to get you better results than what you might think.
Friends and family are great resources to lean on in a time like this, but each DUI arrest is different. Friends may tell you things that don’t mean anything to your situation. Talking to people to relieve stress in natural but that’s where it should end. Living with the consequences of a bad DUI case changes the rest of your life. You want to walk into the court with a DUI lawyer, who knows the process, who has worked in the court, and who has gotten good outcomes before.
Generally, I am taking DUI offenses in Las Cruces in the magistrate court and the district court. I will also do criminal defense work on DUI outside of Las Cruces in Alamogordo and Ruidoso. I have won lots of cases out of Sunland Park. I have also taken cases from Dona Ana, Anthony, Mesquite, and Chaparral.
A DWI 1st Offense is a petty misdemeanor. That means you could spend up to 90 days jail. If you refused chemical testing or was above a certain level then there is a mandatory jail term. Also, DWI school, alcohol evaluation, ignition interlock for 1 year, and community service is mandatory. Your license can also be revoked 6 months to 1 year license revocation (1 year if under 21). If your license is taken away you and you drive you can be charged with driving on a suspended license for DWI.
We will decide what is most important to you. Acquittal is always the goal, but it is not always possible. Most people who come to criminal defense lawyers with a first offense are worried in this order.
