Being charged with multiple or consecutive DUI offenses is perhaps one of the easiest ways to lose your legal ability to drive. Prosecutors love to jump on a DUI case and enthusiastically pursue a conviction as a way to give their reputations a boost. That means there’s so much at stake if you are facing DUI charges.
The good thing is that the right legal representation can help you prevent a conviction and potentially harsh DUI penalties. Contact the DUI defense at the Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani to learn how we can protect your driving privileges and rights.

When facing DUI charges, one important thing you need to do is to act fast.
You have only seven days to challenge the revocation of a driver’s license, lest you may lose your driving privilege in both the state and country for nine or more months. So, you need to request your DMV hearing fast. To do that, you need to have the right documents and be able to answer questions properly. An experienced defense attorney is your best bet if you want to handle these matters correctly and urgently.
You may be required to go to court before the court’s first scheduled hearing. This is essential if you have any pending issues, such as having traveled outside Colorado. A qualified attorney can immediately guide you on how to deal with these issues at the court amidst pending charges.
The other reasons for acting fast include devising a mitigation plan, preserving evidence, and strategizing for a favorable result. While the DUI case may take between 3 and 6 months to completely resolve in court, and possibly longer if there’s a trial, the action you take within the first week of arrest may directly influence the final outcome.
The decision you make after getting arrested could be critical for your future freedom and finances. It is important to move with speed even though it might feel challenging, especially if you value your driver’s license.

He is ready to assess your likelihood of success fighting the charge thoroughly or to pursue the results comfortable to you if the case against you is particularly strong.
Underage UDI is when a motorist below 21 years drives a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. State laws in Colorado do not tolerate underage DUI, and offenders are often punished severely. Even an insignificant amount of alcohol can get you a criminal record. Pisani Law can help minimize the damage to your future.
First-time DUIs are equally serious, and the law cares little whether it is your first time. However, since you are not a repeat offender, Pisani Law can fight to get you a beneficial arrangement to get the charges dismissed or reduced.
Multiple DUI charges are pretty serious in Colorado as they almost always require mandatory probation and community public service, not to mention jail sentences and extensive fines. Regardless of how many DUIs you have faced previously, Denver DUI Lawyer Steven J. Pisani can still secure you a beneficial arrangement. It can be tempting to imagine there is nothing you could do, but we can negotiate and push for an alternative penalty.
Motorists who face a fourth or subsequent offense are legally facing felony charges, which can attract prison time. Call Pisani Law.
