A DUI conviction lasts a lifetime; that’s why it’s so important to begin working with an experienced DUI defense attorney as soon as you’ve been charged with this serious offense.Lawyer Joey Turner of The Turner Firm has built his practice on successfully defending clients against DUI charges in Pooler and the surrounding areas. He knows what’s at stake and is ready to go to work for you.
Challenging the Evidence Against You
Say you took—and failed—the battery of field sobriety tests at the time of your arrest. Or, perhaps you submitted to the roadside breath test or the official State breath test showed that your blood alcohol content was above the legal limit of 0.08%. Maybe the arresting officer claims that your eyes were red and bloodshot or that your speech was slurred when he pulled you over. You may feel as though you have already lost your case.
If you are convicted of or plead guilty to a DUI, you stand to lose your license. You could be sentenced to time behind bars. You may have to pay expensive fines and even go on probation. You risk having an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. What’s more, even after your sentence is over, a DUI conviction will remain on your record forever and could keep you from getting a job or keeping the one you have.
Pleading Guilty is Not an Option
The fact is that DUI defense is a complex and highly technical field. Regardless of the evidence that the State has against you, Joey Turner is ready to review your case. He has the experience to know that police error or other extenuating circumstances at the time of your arrest may have occurred. Joey will examine every aspect of the events leading up to your arrest to ensure that law enforcement protocol was followed every step of the way.
Pleading guilty to a DUI should not be an option. Mounting a solid defense and being proactive about your case could save you the embarrassment and stigma of having a DUI conviction on your record. You need an attorney who will fight to prove your innocence or reduce the charges against you.
