When you are facing drunk driving charges, one of the biggest things that you have to think about is how you are going to continue doing daily life tasks without a driver’s license. This is a major change from what you might be accustomed to, so you do need to spend some time planning.
There are sometimes options available that may help you regain your driving privileges after a certain period of time. These are usually handled during the administrative proceedings that come with these cases. We can help you find out what options might be available in your case so that you can make your plans based on those.
As we discussed in a previous blog post, these cases are expensive. You can’t really afford to miss too much work while you are going through this. Not having transportation or a plan to get there can make it difficult. Unfortunately, you can’t afford to miss out on any payments that are due to the court.
We know that this is a challenging time for you. While you are handling the life aspects of this case, you also need to think about your defense strategy. The more information you have about the charge, the penalties you face and the strategy options you have, the better you might feel.
One thing that you should never do is ignore the fact that you have charges pending. Trying to ignore the charge and hoping it will go away is never a good idea because it enables the prosecution to work on their side of the matter while you aren’t doing anything.
