REASONS WHY SOMEONE MAY BE CHARGED WITH DUI

There are many, many reasons why people receive DUI charges. Sometimes people are charged with DUI because they do not understand the seriousness of a drunk driving offense or getting behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol. Sometimes these people drink and drive repeatedly and when they are charged they just happen to have been caught at that point in time.

Other people have personal alcohol and drug related issues that are more medical in nature and need to be handled from a different approach. These people may be addicted physically, emotionally, or mentally to alcohol or drugs. There are varying levels of alcohol use and abuse and it is important for counsel and their clients to look at and evaluate cases from all different angles. After all, we may be attorneys handling DUI and criminal charges but the first and foremost priority should be the people that we help our clients. Our law firm puts people first.

Still others charged with DUI may be wrongly accused and there is not much evidence against them such as a DUI where the defendant did not submit to any chemical test or possibly the person did not consume any alcohol or was not impaired.

CARING FOR OUR CLIENTS

We care about our clients as people and therefore, evaluate the categories above in every case. However, ultimately, we treat you with the same respect and dignity no matter what category you fall into. The analysis involves not only looking at the legal and practical side of the Birmingham, Alabama DUI offense but also looking at the person and what is going on in their life that may have caused this issue. There is no greater time period in life that someone can be loved than during the time that they have criminal charges pending. Criminal charges can cause emotional and mental issues, divorces, they can cause children to disown their parents, parents to disown their children, and they can have very serious personal, practical, and legal ramifications. That is why we take these charges very, very seriously and you should too.
