Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
If you have been arrested for DWI or DUI, it is crucial to hire an attorney quickly. The law imposes very quick deadlines which cannot be extended. Specifically, you have thirty (30) days from your date of arrest to request an administrative hearing on whether the Office of Motor Vehicle will suspend your driver’s license. If you fail to timely request a hearing, your license will automatically be suspended. In addition, once arraigned, there is a deadline to file discovery and other legal documents, therefore, it is important to retain an attorney prior to the arraignment. The Colvin Law Firm is experienced in handling DWIs and negotiating the most favorable outcome possible for you.
