Can I get my drinking ticket dropped?

Posted by Allison Blackwelder | Jan 11, 2017 | 0 Comments

Citations and arrests related to alcohol are unique.  While you may be able to have your case dismissed, this circumstance is rare.  It is important to discuss your case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after you have been charged with an alcohol-related offense to help you understand the options available to resolve your case most favorably.

Alcohol-related charges are serious and range from misdemeanors (i.e. Alcohol in Possession, Public Disorderly Conduct, etc.) to felonies (i.e. DUI Resulting in Death).  Alcohol consumption can lead to unanticipated consequences.  With such a wide array of alcohol-related charges, it is no surprise that there is a wide range of punishment, ranging from simple fines to up to 25 years in jail.  

You need an experienced attorney on your side at the start of your case to help avoid jail time, high fines, loss of your license, and a criminal record, if at all possible.

Blackwelder Law looks forward to helping you learn about the options available to you in your alcohol-related case.  Give us a call today for your free consultation.
