Bensalem DUI Attorney

Basic DUI Advice for First-Timers

Bensalem DUI Attorney has been defending local residents charged with DUI for over 20 years and knows that the first time you are arrested and charged with DUI can be the most stressful and harrowing experience of your life. Fear of the unknown will naturally make you feel uncomfortable and the police know this. When you are arrested, interrogators will tell you that confessing will make you feel better and they will encourage you to talk about the events that led up to your arrest, i.e., "how many drinks did you have", or "where were you drinking?". Their questions are loaded and merely answering them imply an admission of guilt on your part. You should know your rights in advance as well as what you must do if you are pulled over and how to avoid making self-incriminating statements. Here are the basics of what you should know pertaining to your first DUI arrest.

Probable Cause

The police need to have a probable cause to suspect that you have violated a traffic law to pull you over in the first place.

Reasonable Suspicion

The police need to have had a reasonable suspicion that you are driving while intoxicated before arresting you.

Miranda Warnings

The police must read you your Miranda Warnings such as having the right to remain silent before arresting you.

The Right to Remain Silent

I thought I could handle my divorce by completing all my forms on my own. Well, I was wrong and the courts couldn't tell me what I did wrong. After 2 years of going back and forth trying to figure out what I did wrong, I decided to hand it over to a professional/lawyer. I found John on a Google search. I was able to get an appointment right away with him. He was able to work around my schedule. John took control of everything and and within 3 weeks my divorce was completed. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family Joanna Kane
