Defense for Drunk Driving Charges

Have you been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol in Utah? Although many people consider DUI checkpoints to be unconstitutional, these sobriety checks unfortunately remain a reality in the state. We understand the various DUI defenses available to protect you from the serious consequences of a conviction and can explain them to you.

It is important to realize that you only have 10 days to request a driver's license hearing after being arrested for DUI. Our lawyers schedule DMV hearings free of charge on behalf of people who have been charged with DUI. If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, contact us right away. We will file your request for a hearing without charge, even if you ultimately decide not to retain us for your case.
