Whether it’s your first, second, or third offense, you face very serious consequences from being convicted of a DUI. Even for your first offense, you will lose your driver’s license and can potentially face jail time. For a second or third offense, the consequences are even more severe. You face longer jail time, higher fines and penalties, a longer license suspension, and will likely receive an Ignition Interlock Device on your car.
Choosing to just accept the charges you face is not a wise decision. You’ll face exorbitant fines and penalties and jail time. Your license, your reputation, and your freedom are on the line when you are convicted of a DUI. You can’t leave anything to chance. Instead, you can hire a experienced Providence DUI Attorney, Kensley R. Barrett if you hope to stand a chance at minimizing your charges.
If you or someone you know is facing a DUI charge, you need to find legal representation that understands what you’re facing and who will defend your rights. The Law Offices of Kensley R. Barrett is an experienced criminal defense law firm that aggressively defends people accused of DUIs and other criminal allegations.
You Face Two Legal Challenges After an Arrest for Drunk Driving
After an arrest for drunk driving, you will face a criminal charge and the possible suspension of your driver’s license. Even for a first offense, you could lose your license for anywhere from two to 18 months. As your attorney, Kensley R. Barrett will fight for you and protect your rights in both areas. Our legal team will work to minimize the charges you’re facing so you can get back to life as normal.
Successful DUI Defense Strategies
Because each DUI case is unique, I promise to analyze each and every aspect of your case. I will look for mistakes made by police and weaknesses in the state’s case to strengthen our defense. Some of the things I look for include:
- Lack of probable cause for the initial stop
- Improperly conducted field sobriety tests
- Inadmissible breath test results
If there is reason to believe the evidence obtained in your case was gathered illegally or improperly, I will use my knowledge to attempt to suppress this evidence. If the motions to suppress the evidence are successful, it will usually result in a dismissal of the case or a reduction of the charges. If going to trial is the best option in your case, I will use my years of courtroom experience to seek an acquittal.
Mitigating Your Penalties
If a conviction cannot be avoided in your case, I will work to mitigate the effects it has on your life, including retaining your driving privileges and an eventual expungement of the charge from your record. No matter what, we will fight until the end so you achieve the best possible outcome.
We don’t want to the stigma of a DUI case to ruin your representation. Don’t leave your case to just anyone. Hire an attorney with years of experience.
