Remember to use a designated driver for the 4th of July

If you are going to head out to a fireworks display or barbecue for the 4th of July holiday and plan on drinking, make sure that you plan to have a designated driver or a similar way home after. This can help you to avoid having to end the festivities in a jail cell. Of course, you can't predict the future so there might not be a way that you will know that you are going to head out for drinks.

We realize that it is easy to get into trouble after having a few to drink with your buddies. If you are facing a drunk driving charge, you need to look into a few different things. One of these is that you will have to face the administrative penalties that come with this charge. If you plan on fighting against these, including the driver's license suspension, you need to get started right away. There are very short time limits for handling these matters.

You also need to look at the criminal case you are facing. How are you going to handle those? You might not feel like facing these head-on; however, you should start getting ready for the jury trial because you might have to go through the trial. Trying to piece together a defense strategy at the last minute can make your case seem sloppy.

We realize that you might not be prepared for having to work on all of this; however, these charges aren't going to go away. We can help you to learn the options that you have so that you can decide what you are going to do.
