Seeking A Resolution That Is In Your Best Interests
The way in which prosecutors pursue convictions in criminal cases varies depending on the details of the situation. For example, a first time drunk driving offender may be eligible for a non-adjudication program which allows them to avoid jail and keep their driver's license but are required to install an ignition interlock device.
It is important to also have knowledge before anything happens with police and in case you are faced with a situation that you did not expect to be in. We offer a wide range of advice for our clients, including information on what you should do if you are pulled over by police.
