Why Experienced Representation Matters
As DUI law is more complex than commonly thought, a number of individuals find themselves facing arrest and unsure about their options. In Tennessee, a DUI can be more than driving while under the influence of alcohol. It can involve taking prescription pills or being under the influence of illegal drugs such as marijuana. There is also such a thing as DUI by allowance where someone gives permission to another individual to drive who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Though the law is not always clear, the consequences of a DUI conviction can be extremely severe. Individuals convicted of DUI face:
- Jail time
- Driver’s license suspension
- Suspension of a commercial license
- Mandatory installation of ignition interlock systems on your vehicle
- Mandatory drug and alcohol treatment
The penalties become even harsher with subsequent convictions. Multiple violations can result in felony charges — as can causing an injury-related accident while under the influence.
As lawyers who have helped so many people in similar circumstances, we understand what you are going through. Our knowledge of the local court system helps us to provide you with the kind of representation that is difficult to locate. We routinely handle suppression issues to help keep evidence out of the court hearing. As we keep up to date regarding changes to the law, we know how to appropriately challenge Breathalyzer and blood tests. We know how to cross-examine law enforcement officers who made arrests and conducted field sobriety tests.
