DUI/DWI cases are complex. Modern police departments employ sophisticated methods for spotting, stopping and detecting suspected impaired drivers. A DUI/ DWI arrest has far-reaching consequences including:
Potential Driver License Restrictions
Fines and Fee
Possible Mandatory Jail
Impacts on Professional License
Loss of Employment
There are two stages to a DUI/DWI arrest: (1) Action by the Utah Department of Motor Vehicles and possible driver’s license revocation; and (2) The filing of criminal charges in court. Each stage requires specialized knowledge and legal skill as oftentimes saving one’s driving privileges is as equally important as a successful result in the criminal case.
You must act quickly after arrest to protect your driving privileges; otherwise your license will be revoked. You must also usually appear before the judge shortly after arrest.
You should consult with an experienced lawyer like Mr. Mauro who has successfully handled hundreds of these cases and knows how to challenge the police and prosecutors at the driver license division and in the courts.
