What Should I Do After A DUI?

A DUI/DWI charge is something you must take seriously. While a first offense may be a misdemeanor, subsequent offenses will result in felony charges. In addition, you may lose your driver's license, be sentenced to jail time and face harsh fines and fees.

If you or a family member is charged with DUI, call a lawyer immediately. At Elton Jenkins, Attorney at Law, we have experience with hundreds of drunk driving cases. We know Oklahoma DUI law and how it will apply in your case. Speak with us at your free consultation to learn more. Call 405-928-8708.

Steps To Take To Protect Your Rights

Don't plead guilty. Too many people in this situation plead guilty in an effort to end it quickly. A guilty plea is equivalent to a conviction, however, and will remain on your criminal record.

Request a license hearing. After a DUI charge, your driver's license will be suspended. You have 15 days to request a hearing to fight the suspension. If you miss the deadline, you will likely miss your chance to get your license back or receive a hardship license. When you work with our firm, we will take care of the hearing request for you.

Don't assume the field sobriety or breath tests will convict you. Police must follow rules for administering field sobriety and breath tests. Even if you failed the tests, the results may not be admissible if police violated the rules and procedures. Our lawyer will review your case to determine whether police violated your rights.

Talk to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You will not know all of your options until you discuss your case with a lawyer. People unwittingly damage their case by trying to handle it on their own.
