Q: What should I do first?
A: Contact the DMV
Most states require you to contact the DMV immediately after being charged with a DUI or DWI. In some states, you have as little as 10 days to do so.
Contrary to what many people believe, there are defenses to DWI charges. It's important to protect your rights, even if it's your first offense.
Decide If You Need a Drunk Driving Attorney or Not
In most cases, the answer is yes, but it is expensive so you need to know what questions you should ask a lawyer before you make that decision.
