Koufman Frederick Attorney

OUI-DWI

If Charged, You Need Counsel

Many people would be amazed at the number of persons who have been charged with operating a car while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (“OUI”). Too often people are stopped and charged with an OUI when they are actually innocent of this offense. It is also true that too often people consume alcohol and assume they are not under the influence, and it is only after they are stopped and charged when they realize they consumed too much alcohol. Sometimes, people drink and drive when they know they should not be driving even before the police stop them.

In either case, a person charged with an OUI (called DWI or DUI in other states) should immediately retain an attorney who can promptly and accurately evaluate his or her case, offer advice on how to best dispose of it, and if a trial is elected, have the skills to effectively defend the case at trial. The consequences of an OUI conviction or underage drinking conviction, such as the loss of license and possible jail time, are too important not to retain competent counsel to defend you and guide you through the court system.

As past prosecutors and then as criminal defense attorneys, our partners at K&F, have extensive trial experience with respect to persons charged with operating motor vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Consequently, our lawyers can effectively analyze your unique case, develop a sound strategy to favorably dispose of it, and if the strategy calls for a trial, effectively defend you at trial.

K&F Would Best Serve You

If convicted of OUI, you can face jail time, heavy fines and driver’s license suspension. As the number of offenses increases, so do the potential penalties.

Whether this is your first offense or your third offense, our law firm will provide your case with the attention it deserves. As former prosecutors, our partners are knowledgeable about the ways in which law enforcement and the prosecution will present your case and use the evidence against you. It is our job to analyze the evidence, identify inconsistencies in police reports and illegalities in the traffic stop and administration of field sobriety or breath tests. Our firm strives to have illegally obtained evidence suppressed, the case dismissed or the charges reduced. And, as trial attorneys, we proceed to trial when all other options have been exhausted and optimize your chances of a favorable verdict by thoroughly preparing for trial and utilizing our partners’ experience and trial skills.
