Regardless of what type of vehicle a person is operating, a DUI, OUI (operating under the influence), or BUI (bicycling under the influence) still warrants the representation of a DUI attorney.
Too many people have been hurt or killed by drunk drivers so the law takes this charge seriously and imposes stiff penalties for offenders. While some people, especially repeat offenders, deserve to penalized, others are guilty of using unsound judgment and deserve some leniency. A DUI lawyer can appeal to judges and prosecutors to give their clients a break if they made a mistake and have been otherwise responsible citizens.
A DUI can be challenged, but the best hope a person has for reducing or dodging the charges requires a sound DUI defense. Since DUI attorneys focus their practice defending intoxicated drivers they extremely knowledgeable and capable of helping you beat the charges.
