Were you recently accused of driving under the influence? It can be a scary situation and you probably have lots of questions running through your mind. Here are the first 3 things The Law Office of Steven R. Adams suggests you do if you are accused of a DUI:
1. Document what happened
Be sure to write down everything that happened when you were accused of a DUI. This is the first and most important step because if you do not do this right away, you will forget important details that could help win your case. Write down where you were when you were pulled over, and when it happened (time of day). What did the officer say when he pulled you over? Did you take the breath test? Did you tell the officer you were drinking? Write down every single detail that happened.
2. Protect your online reputation
Where do many people start looking when they are trying to find out information about someone? They scour social media sites. Take down any unsuitable photos of you (drinking at a party, etc.) that may be online.
3. Find an aggressive DUI attorney in Ohio to defend you
Start searching immediately for the best DUI attorney to represent you. Search avvo.com, ask your friends and family if they recommend anyone.
