You can be arrested on a drunk driving charge with no warning. Yes, just like that you are driving home after an evening out with your friends, and suddenly, you seeing flashing lights and you’re being asked to pull over to the side of the road. Before you know it, an officer wants to test your sobriety. You need a smart Saco Maine OUI lawyer to fight back against a very serious criminal charge that can haunt you for a long time.
The mere thought of it can be harrowing and this is why you need effective legal representation without delay if you have been arrested on an OUI/DWI/DUI charge. In Maine, these terms are interchangeable and you should not feel confused, because the implication remains the same: you have been caught driving under the influence, but you can also be arrested even if you NOT over the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit.
Don’t Have Second Thoughts About Seeking the Best Maine OUI Lawyer
Generally, DUI charges don’t entail stakeouts or investigations, or even a trial, which is why most people abstain from calling an OUI lawyer upon their arrest, which is a BIG MISTAKE. The first thing you should be doing is asking for your one phone call, and call us at Webb Law group. At Webb Law, we are a team of experienced OUI/DWI/DUI defense lawyers who specialize in this area of the law.
We provide aggressive representation for people:
- Arrested on a DUI charge
- Involved in a drunk driving accident
- Reprimanded for refusal to take the breathalyzer test (OUI refusal)
Maine DUI Penalties
Regardless of the charges, you have rights, and we at Webb Law can protect you. But you have to understand that the case isn’t over when you are charged. In fact, the charge will go on your permanent record and the next time you are pulled over for drunk-driving, you could be facing serious jail time, and your driving privileges may be suspended.
At Webb Law, we analyze and understand the circumstances of your case and fight aggressively to have your charges decreased or completely dropped. We negotiate with the prosecuting attorney, and if the case goes to trial, we are skilled at orating in the courtroom, putting forth your narrative in the court of law and giving you the best possible chance of acquittal.
The issues which have to be considered include:
- The testing method (breath, blood, urine)
- The justification for the officers who pulled you over (for example, at an OUI check)
- The influence of other medication or substances (prescriptions, inhalers)
- The validity of the tests you were put through (field sobriety tests, walk and turn, one leg stand)
- The actual level of alcohol recorded (your blood alcohol content measured as grams percent, for example .08 %)
