We can help you with your DUI charge. Here's how.
If you're convicted of a drinking and driving offense such as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), you have a lot to lose. This website has the information you need to make the best decisions.
Being charged is stressful. You might have stopped thinking clearly, even if your trial is far away. While your situation is serious, there's help and there's hope®.
Our lawyer search helps find DUI/DWI lawyers who specialize in defending people like you who've been charged with DUI and other drinking and driving offences.
Know the facts before entering your plea.
On this site you'll learn that DUI and DWI charges are more difficult to prove than you might think, even if the police say you failed the breath test. You'll learn that:
- You may have a defense, even if you don't think so.
- Even without a defense, you may be able to negotiate a plea to a lesser offense.
That's why you should never plead guilty® until you've had your case reviewed by a DUI attorney or DWI lawyer.
Drinking and driving is NOT against the law.
There's a lot of bad information out there about drinking and driving. You might think that if you had even one drink, you may as well plead guilty and get it over with. That's not true.
In most places, it's not against the law to drink and drive. Here's what IS against the law:
- "Driving under the influence of alcohol"
- "Driving while impaired or intoxicated"
- "Driving "over .08"
In other words, it's against the law to drive while your "impaired or intoxicated", or with a blood alcohol level that's over the legal limit of 0.08 percent (or lower for commercial or new drivers). Simply drinking and driving is usually not enough to sustain a conviction for DUI or DWI.

Get help, and have hope.
