Practical Help

Mr. 'Pete' Burkhalter

Basic understanding and actions required when facing a DUI.

I know this is something you never expected to happen to you, and you certainly did not plan for it, but you have been ARRESTED. What do you do once arrested? You should hire a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. You need someone on your side who can help you work through this difficult situation. For the last 20 years I have represented individuals in a variety of cases from misdemeanor traffic offenses to serious felony offenses.
