Charged with DUI / DWAI in Douglas County - Find an Attorney

dui.jpgDriving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI), are both defined under C.R.S. 42-4-1301. This alcohol charges are common in Douglas, Arapahoe, and Denver County. You need a qualified criminal defense lawyer to help with your case. DUI / DWAI convictions can haunt you for years because of the vast array of consequences they impose on your freedom, livelihood, and lifestyle. When charged with a DUI, always remember these important points:

What Should I do When Detained for a DUI in Parker?

The first thing you need to know is that most of what the Parker police will tell you to do is voluntary. The officer may say that you "need" to step out of the car and perform roadside maneuvers (which could be saying the alphabet backwards, one-leg stand, walking heel-to-toe, etc.). However, all of the roadside tests are completely voluntary and should not be performed.. If you pass the DUI roadside maneuvers, the district attorneys in Jefferson, Adams, and Elbert County will most likely still pursue charges against you.

Should I Submit to a Breath Test in Highlands Ranch?

The answer depends on which breath test you are being asked to perform. The Douglas County Sheriff's Department can ask you to perform two different Blood Alcohol Content tests. The first is the roadside test; otherwise known as a Portable Breath Test (PBT). This test is completely voluntary and there are no negative consequences when you say "no" to the test. The second test, the Express Consent Test (EC Test), is required. If you refuse to take an EC Test, there will be a long term suspension of your driving privileges in the state of Colorado through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Have the Laws for DUI Changed in Castle Rock?

DUI laws in Colorado change frequently, and have recently done so. The consequences of a plea bargain for criminal / traffic charges in Broomfield, Gilpin, and El Paso County have become stricter. However, the DMV in Lakewood has lightened the punishment on your ability to drive in Colorado following DUI / DWAI charges. You need to speak with an experienced DUI criminal defense attorney because the laws for DWAI are constantly changing.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI or DWAI in Douglas County, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and contact one of the best defense lawyers at 303-731-0719 right now. Together, we can protect your future.
