 Posted on June 30, 2021 in DUI/OWI

Milwaukee DUI Defense attorneyFrom fines and jail time to a criminal record, a DUI comes with many consequences. People with DUI convictions may have a more difficult time securing employment and strained relationships with their family members and friends. Taking the proper steps immediately after your arrest, however, can improve your chances of a more favorable outcome.

Steps to Take After a DUI Charge

Although you may feel nervous and scared right now, you must regain your composure and do what is necessary to protect your future. By taking the appropriate action at the appropriate time, you can help your own case as you move forward:

Here are a few steps to take after getting charged with a DUI in Wisconsin:

  • Arrange transportation. Once you get arrested for a DUI, your driver’s license will automatically get suspended. This poses a problem because you have to go to court, work and other important places. Ask a trusted family member or friend to drive you to these places until you get your license back.
  • Consult a lawyer. If you have been accused of drunk driving, you should discuss your case with an experienced DUI attorney promptly. An attorney can provide you with valuable legal advice and answer all of your questions. For example, you may want to ask a lawyer if you should take your case to trial or if you can get the DUI removed from your record eventually. A lawyer will represent you to the best of his or her ability and prevent you from making mistakes that could jeopardize your case.
  • Identify witnesses. If there are witnesses who can testify on your behalf, you should contact them immediately. For example, if you were with a couple of friends at a bar before you got arrested, they may be able to testify that you only had one or two drinks and were not intoxicated.
  • Listen to the judge’s orders. During your arraignment, a judge may inform you of all the orders you have to follow as your case is pending. For instance, a judge may order you to not consume alcohol. To avoid further trouble, follow each order that is given to you.
