Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses What to do if You Get a DUI, Anchorage, Alaska

Carse can assist. Susan H. Carse is a criminal defense attorney who represents individuals in family law and criminal cases.


When the situation occurs, it is important not to say anything to law enforcement. However, be respectful with them, as this can weigh heavily in your favor and give you an “edge” later. Do not admit fault. Contacting a lawyer should also be done as soon as the incident occurs to fill him or her in on what occurred and to begin representation.

Court for a DUI case is often several weeks from the date of the incident. During this time, it is important for an individual to take care of what needs to be done. If community service is discussed, it is pertinent that you begin this time before court starts. This can show that you are serious about the situation and are proactively doing what needs to be done to make it right. Judges respect individuals who understand the effects of their actions and do what should be done without being told.
