Helping Individuals Accused Of Committing DUI Offenses

At the Law Offices of Mark Mesler, we represent individuals accused of driving under the influence. We understand the repercussions of these accusations and work aggressively to help lessen the extent of these consequences. We want to help you make the best possible decisions for your future and help you move forward.

Seeking Lesser Penalties With Experience And Skill

We understand that many clients facing DUI charges have never been in trouble before, and the process can be frightening and intimidating. First-time DUI convictions could hold the following penalties:

  • A minimum of 48 hours in jail
  • Suspended driver's license for one year
  • Payment of fines
  • Probation
  • Drug and alcohol treatment program
  • DUI conviction on permanent record

Clients with prior DUI convictions face harsher penalties. Whether this is your first offense or you have had prior convictions, we will evaluate the evidence against you and build a case in your defense. While it may not be possible to make your case go away, we will do our best to fight for lesser penalties.

Fighting Against Accusations

Officers must adhere to a particular set of rules when pulling you over. We will look at events leading up to the stop, as well as all of the proceedings during and after, including:

  • Dashboard and officer footage
  • Parameters of the search warrant
  • Reasonable suspicion and probable cause for the stop
  • Testing procedures and equipment used

There are standards for conducting and submitting field sobriety, Breathalyzer and chemical tests. As your DUI attorney, we will examine every aspect of your case. Often, the officer makes errors or violates your constitutional rights, and we are ready to use those mistakes to our advantage in your defense. We can explore a number of strategies to build the right defense for you.

If you have been charged with a DUI-related offense such as reckless driving, reckless endangerment, DUI vehicular assault or homicide, contact our office to see how we can assist you.
