Have you been forced to pull over and charged with drunk driving? Then you are not alone. You will agonize for a couple of hours after getting arrested as you ponder over the possible punishment associated with driving under the influence of alcohol. But a call to the Denver DUI attorney Steven J. Pisani could make things easier for you.
And how about getting your driver’s license suspended? Motorists charged with DUI offenses in Colorado usually have many questions, especially when it is the first time to face DUI charges.
If you have been arrested for drunk driving, do not panic. Steven J. Pisani is here to fight for your rights and get you off the hook. Call us for help as soon as possible.
When facing DUI charges, you are likely dealing with two different legal issues: the criminal charge and losing a driver’s license. A DUI jeopardizes your driver’s license immediately. All you have is seven days to go to the Colorado DMV and request a hearing.
Denver DUI attorney Steven J. Pisani will start working on your case without delay. He will attend the hearing with an administrative law officer and argue on your behalf. The DMV hearing is usually a great chance to start preparing for a robust defense, and it can lead to the dismissal of the case, especially if the prosecutor and police do not have strong evidence.
Fighting to keep your driver’s license at a DMV hearing is one of Pisani Law firm’s greatest strengths, and our job is to mount all available legal arsenal at our disposal to get you a fair DUI hearing.
After being charged with a DUI, you should give priority to a couple of things.
You have only seven days to challenge the revocation of a driver’s license. Otherwise, you may lose your driving privilege both at the state and national levels for nine or more months. So, you need to request your DMV hearing, and to do that, you need the right documents and be able to answer questions correctly. You need an attorney by your side to handle these matters accurately.
You may be required to go to court before the court’s first scheduled hearing. This step may be necessary if you have any pending issues, such as having traveled outside Colorado. A qualified attorney can guide you on how to deal with these issues at the court.
You also need to act quickly in a bid to devise a mitigation plan, preserve evidence, and strategize for a favorable result. While the DUI case may take between 3 and 6 months to resolve in court completely, and possibly longer if there’s a trial, the action you decide within the first week of arrest may directly influence the outcome.
The decision you make after getting arrested could be critical for your future freedom and finances. It is vital to move with speed even though it might feel challenging, especially if you value your driver’s license.
A DUI charge is a serious one and should be taken with the seriousness it deserves. Colorado DUI defense attorney, Steven J. Pisani, will act quickly in your defense, by handling the cumbersome DMV procedures and fighting to let you off the hook.
He is ready to assess your likelihood of success fighting the charge or 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 when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Colorado law does not tolerate underage DUI and considers the charges severe, especially if you combine drinking and driving. Even a tiny amount of alcohol can get you a criminal record. At Pisani Law, we 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, we can fight to get you a beneficial arrangement to get the charges dismissed or reduced.
Repeat DUIs can attract severe penalties. Regardless of how many DUIs you have faced previously, Pisani Law 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 severe penalties, including at least 90 days in jail.
Commercial driver DUIs
Whether you were arrested for DUI while driving your car or working on the job, your career could be at stake if your license is suspended or revoked. Attorney Steven J. Pisani can help you mitigate the charges.
Other Charges with DUI

We examine each charge individually. We conduct a thorough review of the arresting officer’s background and incident report.
We examine if law enforcement met the standard operating procedures. We can check if the breathalyzer is working optimally, and where applicable, we visit the arrest location and conduct an independent analysis of the blood sample taken.
Sometimes we find evidence of errors by the chemical testing equipment or police. And this is sufficient to get your DUI case thrown out, so you keep your license and record clean.
