We all make mistakes. Sometimes, those errors in judgment lead to criminal charges. Drunk driving is an offense that can happen to anyone. Following an arrest, you may believe that speaking to law enforcement is your best option. However, it only compromises your criminal case and your rights.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, an attorney can serve as your best advocate. At the Law Office of Jerome N. Goldstein, Esq., we provide immediate representation in a time of crisis.

Minimizing The Impact Of Drunk Driving Charges

An arrest for DWI or any crime does not mean a conviction is automatic. From the initial stop to the administration of Breathalyzer and sobriety testing, errors can occur. Simple mistakes can negatively impact your future. Attorney Goldstein will conduct an in-depth investigation to identify possible violations of your rights.

Even if there are no errors in your arrest, you still have alternatives that could minimize the consequences you face. Attorney Goldstein's background in counseling helps him to identify the specific issues that led up to your arrest. Prior to any court appearance, he may encourage you to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He knows firsthand that prosecutors and judges look favorably on the accused taking those important steps.

The Possibility Of License Suspension

In addition to criminal penalties, you also face administrative license suspension following a drunk driving arrest. Refusing to consent to Breathalyzer tests or registering an elevated blood alcohol concentration (BAC) can lead to the loss of your driver's license.

Strict timelines exist that require legal intervention. Failing to schedule a hearing regarding your license suspension will result in the loss of your driving privileges.
