What To Do In Case Of A DWI
Clients often call us and say that they were out to dinner, had a glass of wine and now have been stopped on a traffic violation. They have never been arrested before or charged with a DWI. They have no idea what will happen or what they should do.
Be Polite, But Ask To Speak With An Attorney
If you are stopped and accused of driving while intoxicated, be cooperative with the arresting officer. Tell them your attorney told you to be polite, and refuse all tests, including field sobriety tests such as walking a straight line.
Do not offer information, but be polite in refusing to do so. The officer may be recording you with video or audio equipment, and you could cause yourself further harm. The DWI laws have various consequences for the decisions you make upon arrest.
