DUI laws in Colorado are rated as the 11th strictest in the country in terms of penalties for those convicted. There are mandatory minimum jail sentences for DUI convictions and automatic revocation of your driver’s license. The loss of a driver’s license is a significant inconvenience, as it makes simple everyday activities like getting groceries and taking kids to school very complicated. If you are charged with drunk driving in Broomfield, it is therefore critical that you hire an experienced attorney who specializes in handling DUI cases.
It is important that you are knowledgeable about the DUI laws in Colorado, to help you to avoid potentially serious consequences. For example, even if your BAC is below 0.08%, you can still be charged with and convicted of driving while ability impaired. There simply needs to be evidence of impairment for you to face criminal charges. Lacking knowledge of the law may also lead you to speak with the police when you are pulled over, and tell them that you have been drinking. If you are asked questions by an officer in a situation like this, it is best to remain silent. Always contact an experienced attorney right away if you face any DUI or DWAI charges in Colorado.
Serving in the Broomfield, CO Area
Although each case is unique, the goal of your attorney is consistent:
We want to help get you the best possible result in your DUI case, minimizing the impact of a DUI arrest on your life – whether that be reduced penalties from a conviction, a reduction in the charges against you, or outright dismissal of your case.
A DUI conviction can result in significant jail sentences and lengthy driver’s license revocations. Even for a first DUI, there is a 9-month driver’s license revocation, and mandatory jail time if blood alcohol content (BAC) is high. Our the first goal is to help you avoid a conviction, but if that’s not possible based on the evidence in the case, we work to avoid harsh penalties from the Broomfield courts and the Colorado DMV.
