Human beings make mistakes – it’s in our nature. We get caught up in the moment and we simply do not think. This is certainly the case when it comes to our interactions with alcohol.
If you have been young and foolish – or even older and foolish you will know that alcohol can impair your ability to make rationale decisions – and this can often land you in some serious trouble. Unfortunately some of this trouble can involve the law and the criminal justice system, Being arrested for drink driving means that you will need the assistance of a drink drive solicitor immediately – otherwise you could be facing jail time or at the very least a black mark on your driving record or having your license revoked.
Fortunately there are legal firms that specialise in providing legal advise to those who have been caught drink driving and those are the solicitors that every single person who is accused of this offense should immediately turn to. This is not an offense where you will be able to defend yourself – that simply is not sensible.
Given that the penalties for drink driving can be especially harsh – including the confiscation of driving privileges for between a year and 36 months it is essential that the accused find competent and professional legal advice as soon as possible.
A drink drive solicitor will be able to advise the accused on a number of defenses that can be used to mitigate the effects of a guilty charge or indeed obtain a ‘not guilty’ verdict.
The solicitors that you retain will be bale to advise you on defenses that rely on procedural matters such as the ability to remember if the police had informed you that if you fail to provide them with a specimen that you will be prosecuted. If this did not happen then you will be found innocent. However – your attorneys will be the ones who will ascertain the facts.
There are a number of other defenses that can be used to make sure that you do not suffer from an incorrect decision by the courts as regards drink driving. The most obvious of these being that you were not the driver of the motor vehicle at the time when you were arrested.
There are also a number of other procedural issues that your attorneys will use in order to ensure that you suffer the minimal inconvenience of a guilty verdict – however – it is essential that you have a competent attorney at your side at all times.
