A DUI/DWI charge is a very serious offense carrying long-lasting and life-altering penalties if you are convicted. In addition to loss of license from a minimum of 7 months to a maximum of 10 years,you will face substantial financial penalties, the installation of an ignition interlock device, substance abuse evaluations and a record containing a blemish which may bar you from certain employment, professional organizations and universities. Just because you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs does not mean you cannot beat the case. Your biggest mistake may be hiring the wrong lawyer. At The Darling Law Firm, we have extensive experience in the investigation and defense of DUI charges. Our attorneys have resolved hundreds of driving under the influence (DUI) and driving under the influence of drug (DUID) cases. In many instances we have been successful in our defense by finding errors or inconsistencies in police reports relating to field sobriety testing, revealing inappropriate police procedure, Alcotest machine failures, proof of illness affecting test results and other reasons.
In our initial meeting we will obtain the facts of the case from you and advise you of your options. From the moment you retain us we begin preparing an aggressive defense. We immediately order and review the evidence the state intends to use against you, including police reports, witness statements, any audio or video recordings including 911 call center recordings if the police claim to pull you over due to a “concerned citizen” call. Especially in the case of a drug DUI or a DUI in which blood is drawn as evidence, we make every effort to suppress illegally obtained or mishandled evidence in order to obtain a dismissal of the charges against you. Judges have sentencing discretion within certain ranges in DUI matters. If we cannot obtain a dismissal in your matter, we will fight to convince the judge to issue the lightest sentence possible.

- First, second, third and repeat offenses
