3 Things That You Should Not Do When You Have a Pending DUI

Dec 09, 2015

Do you have a pending DUI? If so, your drinking and driving charge is probably always on your mind. You might not think that there is anything that you can do about it until your court date, but this actually isn't true. For example, you can avoid making these three common mistakes while your DUI is pending. Then, you can help ensure that things go well when you go to court.

1. Wait to Hire a Lawyer
Do not wait to hire a lawyer. If you wait until the last minute, your attorney will not have as much time to advise you about your case. If you need a drunk driving attorney, contact us at Mitchell Law Group. We can provide you with the legal counsel that you need.

2. Continue Drinking
Even if you do not feel as if you have a drinking problem, it's a good idea to stop drinking while you are handling your case. The last thing that you need is to get in trouble for drinking or drinking and driving while your case is pending. Plus, your lawyer might suggest that you seek treatment to help your case.

3. Drive Without a License
Your license should have been automatically suspended when you were charged with your DUI. This is probably a big inconvenience for you, but it is imperative not to drive without a license. Your lawyer can talk to you about getting your license reinstated.

If you have a pending DUI, make sure that you don't make these three common mistakes, and contact us at Mitchell Law Group today to get the legal counsel that you need.
