With the holiday season upon us, most of us will be spending time with family and friends. Drinking during this time of year is as much a part of the holidays as gift giving. Make sure you are safe, and don’t have an incident ruin the holidays for you and your loved ones. What should you do if something does happen? Most of us have no idea, because we’ve never been in the situation. Here is a rundown from Ticket Busters of what to do.
1- Contact someone who can help you. Whether a lawyer you have used or been referred to, or a friend who can help you get through the first few days of a tough situation, having support is important.
2- Do not make any statements or admissions to the police.
3- Document everything you can remember about the situation, and the steps leading to your arrest. This includes how many drinks you had, what you had eaten, etc.
4- Were there any witnesses during the arrest? They may have some information, or be willing to leave a statement to help your side of the case.
5- Get any receipts for alcohol and food purchases to back up your story and give an accurate depiction of your night.
6- Contact and meet with your attorney. Ticket Busters has experienced attorneys to help with your Las Vegas DUI. Bring in everything to support your story, and they can help you with understanding the laws, and start working on your case.
7- Make sure your DUI attorney contacts the DMV within 7 days. You have 7 days from the arrest to request a hearing to contest the license suspension. If you don’t contact the Nevada DMV, you may forfeit your right to challenge the suspension.
Make sure you understand your rights, and get a Las Vegas DUI lawyer who can effectively help you through this process. We understand good people make bad decisions. Ticket Busters can also help with any warrants, criminal charges, and of course, Las Vegas traffic tickets.
We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
