DUI DEFENSE:

The effect of alcohol on an individual is determined primarily by two factors: the amount of alcohol consumed and the rate at which it is absorbed by the body. Other contributing factors include gender, body weight, alcohol tolerance, mood, environment and the amount of food consumed.

From the first drink, alcohol affects coordination and judgment. Even with a BAC well below .08 percent, a person's reaction time slows. The risk of being in a crash begins to increase between a BAC of .04 and .05 percent

and increases rapidly thereafter. By the time a driver reaches a BAC of .06 percent, he/she is twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash as a non-drinking driver. By the time a driver reaches a BAC of .08 percent, he/she is 11 times more likely to be killed in a single-vehicle crash than a non-drinking driver.

The only way to rid the body of alcohol is time. Fresh air, coffee, showers and food cannot help a person sober up. It takes about one hour for the body to metabolize one drink. Each of the following has a comparable amount of alcohol and counts as one drink: one 12-ounce mug of beer, one 5-ounce glass of wine or a one 1.5-ounce shot of hard liquor.

 

If you have been charged or arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs), you have to consider two very important issues - Your Driver's License and Your Freedom.  Without an experienced DUI attorney, you could lose both.  That is why it is imperative that you contact The Law Office of David S. Lee, LLC right now for your free consultation.

 

 

DRIVER'S LICENSE: (10 Day Letter)

 

When you are charged with DUI, you have ten (10) days to send a certified letter to the Department of Driver Services in order to preserve your privilege to drive.  If you fail to send this 10-day letter, you driver's license is automatically suspended after 30 days from the date of your DUI arrest.  At the Law Office of David S. Lee, LLC, we will not charge you any attorney fee for sending this letter.  However, recent changes in the law have added a state fee of $150.00 for every letter sent to the Department of Driver Services (DDS).
