The aftermath of a DUI is a confusing and stressful time for anyone. You need to know what steps you can take to help your defense. There are many sensitive dos and don’ts involved in DUIs, and our lawyer in New Jersey knows the intricacies of these cases. Clark & Noonan, LLC can examine your situation and help you fight your DUI criminal charges.

Our background as prosecutors gives us a unique perspective into police protocol for DUI arrests and trials. We know how to recognize mistakes and errors made during your arrest. You most likely had a Breathalyzer or provided a blood or urine test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC) level. If you refused these tests, you could be more likely to have your charges dismissed or reduced.

There are three steps you should take immediately after being released from a DUI arrest including:

  1. Call Clark & Noonan, LLC. The first thing you need to do after getting a DUI is to call our New Jersey office. With our decades of experience and knowledge, we can ease your worries and fight for the best possible results.
  2. Report to Court. One of the most important aspects of a DUI is that you show up to your scheduled court date. The outcome of your case heavily depends on your punctuality and presence.
  3. Adhere to the Consequences. New Jersey has a mandatory license suspension for DUIs, especially if your BAC level was extremely high. If you’re caught driving with a suspended or revoked license, you could lose your license for longer.
