What to Do If You Are Arrested for a DUI

When arrested for a DUI, we encourage full cooperation with the arresting officers. You will likely be subjected to a BAC test, either in the field in the form of a Breathalyzer, or in the station through a blood test. Be polite, but exercise your right to remain silent, speaking only to ask for a DUI attorney. Remember, you are likely being videotaped through the officer's vehicle or uniform, which can work in your favor when it comes to court.

Filing for a Hearing in Utah

You face the automatic suspension of your license if you don't file right away for a hearing. The state only provides a certain amount of days in which to file for this hearing, which is why we encourage quick contact with our firm to ensure you've filed correctly and before the deadline.

During your hearing:

  • Your charges will be read
  • The arresting officer will give testimony
  • Your attorney can cross-examine the arresting officer
  • A Hearing Officer will come to a formal decision about your suspension

We know that these are tying times, but we're here to help

  • We can provide full consultations over the phone and/or by video chat with attorneys.
  • We can handle all internal paperwork and payments electronically.
  • We are experts at resolving cases remotely and electronically. Where appropriate and authorized by the court, we can waive client appearances in court for routine hearings, conduct matters by phone with the prosecutor and judge, facilitate Pleas by Affidavit, and reduce requirements to attend in-person court events.
  • We conduct telephonic administrative hearings and conference in clients.
  • In unfortunate cases where incarceration is ordered, we are adept at working with the court and state attorneys to structure sentencing requirements around the health and welfare concerns of our clients.
Having an attorney present to help facilitate your defense can make all the difference when it comes to the protection of your driving freedom. Ask our firm for help with your case. Call 385-777-2753.
