Why Choose a DUI Lawyer?

Police cars pulling someone over for a DUI.
Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can be harmful to yourself, but it can also endanger the lives of those in the community. It is a serious crime in Colorado, and the punishments are strict. Just a .05% blood alcohol content can land you a DWAI. If you have been charged with a DWAI or DUI, the criminal court process is extensive, and you can run the risk of going to jail. However, with the help of a knowledgeable DUI lawyer, you can feel confident knowing someone is fighting to protect your rights to get you the best possible outcome.

Things To Know About Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

  • The legal limit for driving while ability impaired (DWAI) under the influence is .05%
  • The legal limit for driving under the influence (DUI) is .08%
  • Driving while smoking marijuana is illegal

DUI Sentencing and Punishments

Once charged with a DUI, two separate types of cases coincide. One with the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) and one with the criminal court. Your DUI’s overall outcome or punishment is subjective to your blood alcohol content (BAC) or breath tests, if you’re a first-time or repeat offender, and the underlying circumstances related to your DUI charge. Here are a few examples of how a judge may rule:

  • License suspension from the DMV
  • Potential incarceration
  • Mandatory probation period
  • Community service
  • Large fines
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (IID)
