What To Do When Stopped By Police
If you are stopped by law enforcement, there are specific rules that should be followed:
- Give the officer your driver’s license and proof of insurance
- DO NOT admit to anything
- Politely refuse to answer any questions
- Politely refuse to participate in any field sobriety tests
- Contact a lawyer before you test at the police station
- Continue to politely refuse to make any statements
Talking to law enforcement officials can usually only make matters worse. The police already believe you to be guilty which is why they arrested you in the first place. By representing yourself you create a high risk of incriminating yourself and you may not know all the legalities involved in the criminal proceedings. Matthew Martin is intimately familiar with criminal law and has the extensive training and experience to negotiate and litigate any criminal offense no matter the severity.
Understand The Potential Consequences Of Conviction
Drunk driving and DUI charges can carry serious penalties including license suspension or revocation, significant fines, license reinstatement fees, surcharges, probation, jail time or vehicle forfeiture. Whether it is your second DWI or your third or fourth violation, repeat offenders face even greater penalties. In addition to costs from the state, you may also incur increased insurance premiums and other hidden costs as collateral damage.
The firm also provides superior legal defense for minors charged with underage DWI. If your child is facing a criminal conviction for underage drinking and driving then their entire future may be at stake.
If you happened to cause an accident while driving under the influence and someone was killed as a result, you may be facing charges of vehicular homicide which is almost interchangeable with a murder charge. If that is the case for you, then you must take these charges very seriously and combat them with an aggressive and proactive defense.
