Don't just accept a DUI conviction in Louisiana

Have you been accused of driving under the influence? If so, you could be facing the backlash from your friends and family, colleagues and the justice system. A DUI or DWI in Louisiana is a very serious crime that has a number of heavy penalties. Fortunately, you're not guilty until proven so, so you're able to fight any accusations against you to protect yourself and prevent unwarranted punishments.

When you're stopped under the assumption that you've been drinking and driving, you need to know that you will have rights in the days to come. You have 15 days to request to have an administrative hearing. During that hearing, you and your attorney can defend your actions, and that could help you keep your driving license. If you don't have the hearing, you will lose your driving privileges, and that can put stress on your family or job.

Even if your blood test has come back with a reading of 0.08 or higher, you still have the right to defend yourself. You don't have to plead guilty to drinking and driving. Despite being stopped while drunk, the right defense can make a major difference in the outcome of your case. You can pursue results like dismissed charges, reduced fines or community service in place of jail time.

Whatever you do, it's important to know your options before you speak with the authorities or choose to plead guilty to a crime. You have the right to a proper defense, and you don't have to go through this alone. We can help you learn more about defending against a Louisiana DUI; simply visit our DUI webpage.
