Question: How Bad Is a DUI?
Answer: Pretty bad. You stand to lose money, driving privileges, even your freedom. When you are given a DUI, you are in serious need of a good lawyer.
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is important that you contact our office immediately. DUI/DWI cases move quickly, and the more lead time we have, the better we can defend you.
Constitution-Based Lafayette, Louisiana, DUI Attorney
Much of DUI defense is about evidence: Breathalyzer results, police video and your own comments. If you were given a breath test and it measured above .08 alcohol content, the state of Louisiana will presume you to be guilty of DUI, under the per se laws. This is true even if you passed field sobriety tests — walking in a straight line, etc.
It may surprise you to think of your DUI as a matter of constitutional law, but it is. The truth is, no other area of law involves your constitutional rights the way an arrest does. Your freedom is important to you, but it is just as important to us.
A DUI Arrest Will Change Your Life
At the Law Office of Joshua S. Guillory, we treat DUIs with great urgency. We spring into action, gathering evidence and preparing a strategy. If you have no criminal history, we work to get you into programs like pretrial diversion, in which you plead guilty but the judge does not rule on the plea, while you perform community service and take classes. Eventually, the charges are dismissed.
