What Happens After You Get a DUI

Contact a Lawyer 1 of 7

If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) -- driving while intoxicated in some states -- there are several steps to take and things to prepare for after you have been bailed out.

The first step is to contact a lawyer. Be sure to contact a credible DUI lawyer with experience if you plan on fighting the charge. An attorney who does not specialize in DUI cases may not know the complexities involved, which may affect your outcome.
