DUI/DWI Defense Lawyer
The home of bourbon whiskey is no less harsh about aggressively prosecuting DUIs than any other state. Make the mistake of driving with a blood-alcohol level higher than .08 percent and, its history notwithstanding, you will be prosecuted aggressively and single-mindedly.
The public, the judiciary and the law enforcement community are of common mind about drunk drivers on the roads. When you’ve been charged with DUI, you will need a strong and knowledgeable advocate with credibility in the courtroom, experience and a comprehensive knowledge of DUI law to escape harsh consequences.
Hands-On DUI Representation
Losing your driver’s license, at least temporarily, is the first way you will feel the impact of Kentucky DUI law. I can help with administrative suspensions as well as representation for:
First DUI offenses: A first-time offender will typically face stiff fines, fees, an alcohol education or substance abuse program and possible jail time and/or community service.
Repeat DUI offenses: Expect sanctions for subsequent offenses to be substantially more harsh – longer jail times, greater fines and fees. A fourth conviction is a felony with a five-year suspension of your license and up to five years in jail.
Breathalyzers and field sobriety tests: There are a number of ways that evidence collected in field sobriety tests and Breathalyzers can be challenged.
Aggravating factors increase minimum jail times for DUI convictions at all levels and include high blood-alcohol levels, speeding, causing an accident resulting in death or injury, refusal to submit to testing and having passengers under 12 years of age in the car when pulled over.
