Frequently Asked Questions
They took my license! What can I do about that?
They didn’t take your license…yet. They only took your card, BUT, your license WILL be suspended if you don’t do anything within 15 days of your arrest. Call me and I’ll explain all about it. Read more on my page for Drivers License.
Should I do the DWI field sobriety tests (Walk the line)?
When you are being questioned a video is being recorded of you from the police vehicle. If you are in control of your balance it is a good practice to do the field sobriety test. They will show you have NOT lost your physical ability. The video will be the best evidence to support your defense in court!
Should I give a breath or blood test?
NO. – That’s all. – Just, ‘NO’! – I don’t trust the breath machine or the person who operates it.
Isn’t a lawyer expensive?
Today, maybe. But, for your future a good lawyer is your best insurance to keep your record clean! You don’t want a DWI conviction. It will be on your record FOREVER!
The Prosecutor offered me probation. I can do that. (Can’t I?)
Sure, but you will have to jump through a lot of hoops for many expensive months. PLUS, you will have a DWI conviction on your record for the rest of your life. The prosecutor with one hand shakes your hand while holding handcuffs with his other. Probation is not a ‘quick fix’. It is still a conviction which will stay on your record for the rest of your life. Remember, the Prosecutor is allowing you to plead GUILTY!
When do I need to hire a lawyer?
You need to start looking and interviewing the day you are bonded out of jail. Don’t think this thing will go away. It won’t. Don’t wait!
