  • First Time DUI

  • The first time you are arrested for a DUI can be terrifying. You don’t know what to expect, you fear for your future, and you are upset because you do not want to have a criminal record. You made a mistake that you would most likely not make again and you are afraid you will have to pay for it for the long-term.

    DUI laws in the State of Kentucky involve a range of complicated stipulations that require the knowledge of an attorney. There are also cases in which an individual may not be intoxicated at all. If that has happened to you or you were, in fact, drinking prior to driving your vehicle, you need a competent Kentucky criminal lawyer by your side every step of the way.
