Driving Under the Influence/Driving While Intoxicated Lawyers

A DUI offense occurs when someone drives with prohibited amounts of alcohol in their bloodstream. While the federal legal Blood-Alcohol Content (“BAC”) limit is 0.08%, some states may pursue DUI charges at BAC levels of 0.01%, depending on the driver's age. In some states, a DUI can be charged based on erratic driving behavior, the suspicion of the influence of alcohol, a field sobriety test, or by the officer checking your BAC level via breathalyzer, in the field or at a police station.

Some states define a DWI as Driving While Intoxicated. In these states, there typically are no significant differences between DUI and DWI charges. Consequences include fines, the loss of your license, or even jail time. A Court Buddy DUI/DWI attorney will help defend you and protect your interests.
