D.U.I. / D.W.I.: How To Ruin A Christmas Party

A D.U.I. / D.W.I. charge can ruin an otherwise wonderful evening. Office Christmas parties, or "Holiday Parties" for more progressive companies, generate almost as many D.U.I. / D.W.I. arrests as embarrassing stories and gossip. Every year, employees look forward to the Christmas/Holiday Party and the accompanying year-end bonus. Of course, getting a D.U.I. / D.W.I. can cost more than your year-end bonus. Recent studies show that a D.U.I. / D.W.I. conviction can cost upwards of $20,000. There goes the year-end bonus in one fell swoop.

D.U.I. . / D.W.I. Field Sobriety Tests: NHTSA Manual Updated

D.U.I. Defense is an artform. It involves a combination of legal knowledge, scientific knowledge, case specific research, and experience. The law seems to change annually, and the science develops continually. Law enforcement screening tools were recently updated, although the science behind the changes remains questionable.

D.U.I. - Introduction

Driving Under the Influence (D.U.I.) causes tremendous losses every year in the United States. As a response, legislatures have steadily increased penalties for convictions. In 2011, Money Magazine estimated that a D.U.I. conviction costs the motorist approximately $10,000 on average. In 2014, increased the D.U.I. cost estimate to $20,000. Facing such penalties, some people try to minimize the damage by handling their case themselves, without the benefit of an attorney. To paraphrase Henry Kett, people who represent themselves have a fool for a client.

These recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
