Fight Your DUI Charges With an Experienced Attorney Aggressive, Hard-Hitting Counsel on Your Side

What Should I Do If I'm About to Get Charged with DUI?

DUI Defense Lawyer in Arapahoe County

If you suspect you are about to get charged with DUI or another criminal offense, the first step you need to take is to talk with me, attorney Joseph Lazzara. You can always exercise your Fifth Amendment right and are never obligated to answer questions. In fact, you should not talk with family members or law enforcement at all without having a lawyer present.

One of the biggest mistakes that people make is hesitating in contacting legal counsel. Without a lawyer, you will be unsure of what you can and should say to law enforcement and you risk making statements that could be used against you in court.

Providing Top-Quality Legal Representation

At the Law Offices of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., I offer my clients more than just aggressive legal representation. I am extremely proactive and am known for taking a hands-on approach to working with my clients. As a veteran in the courtroom, I maintain a good rapport with judges, district attorneys, and others in the legal community.

If you suspect you are about to get charged with DUI, DUID, or a related offense, I advise the following:

  • Have your license and information ready and provide it without hesitation
  • You always have the right to refuse field sobriety tests
  • Talk to a Denver DUI attorney before saying anything to law enforcement

It is important to remember that the field sobriety tests will be used against you in building your case. With help from my firm, you will better understand your rights and possible defenses for DUI. You need to take measures to protect yourself and must remain silent until you have a DUI attorney present. When you are represented by my firm, you can count on me to explain what your rights are and what legal options you have.
