Experienced DUI Attorney Lists 4 Steps to Take After Being Charged, Milford, Pennsylvania

DUI charges have repercussions that could impact almost every area of your life, from your driving privileges to employment prospects. Nearly all decisions you make can have a significant outcome on your case, but many defendants don't know what to do in the face of a complicated system. Should you hire a DUI attorney or simply plead guilty? Most importantly, what steps should you take to ensure the best possible results for your case?

3 Crucial Steps to Take After a DUI

1. Do Not Admit Guilt

dui attorneyPleading guilty may seem like your only option when, in fact, the law makes a wide range of defenses available to drivers facing DUI charges. Keep in mind that no matter how sympathetic or friendly the prosecutor may seem, they're looking out for the state's interests — not yours. Politely refuse to cooperate, and don't sign anything until a reputable DUI attorney can look at it.

2. Avoid Social Media

In recent years, prosecutors have taken to combing the social media profiles of defendants for evidence that can be used against them. Until your legal matters are resolved, it's best not to post anything about your arrest, and avoid making any pictures public.

3. Hire an Experienced DUI Attorney

Mounting an effective DUI defense is often complex, requiring the specialized experience of a dedicated lawyer with a proven track record of results. Your legal representative will thoroughly review the arrest report for any potential rights violations and ensure you're treated fairly throughout the process.
