Every year there are more DUI charges on the Wednesday before and the Friday following Thanksgiving than any other day of the year. Hiring a good DUI attorney is the most important thing you can do following an arrest. Many people believe that New Years Eve would be the busiest day, however that day is reserved for professionals and most people have a plan prior to the beginning of the evening.
Wednesday before Thanksgiving, however, is generally last minute plans and over-imbibing. Many students come home for the first time since leaving for college. They see their old friends and have a newfound love for beer. Bars, pubs and restaurants run specials all night because most of them are closed on Thursday.
Having practiced law for 25 years, I have run a similar post many times. It almost always generates a few leads and at least one or two new clients. Of course, DUI and OVI charges occur throughout the year. If you were charged with DUI this week(end), get an experienced attorney to help you through the process. An attorney will discuss your chances of an acquittal as well as guide you through the process. This may include hardship license, Ignition Interlock or avoidance of incarceration.
