Getting a DUI can be one of the most frightening things you may ever face in your life. You may have a lot of unanswered questions and, without the appropriate answers, you could potentially face a much harsher sentence and penalties. A first time DUI carry penalties of jail time with a mandatory 48 hours in custody and a maximum 6 months in jail. Also, you can face a maximum of $1000 in fines, mandatory suspension of your driver's license and probation. If you are facing charges of a possible DUI conviction, you want to hire a defense team that will analyze all of the evidence relevant to your situation and aggressively fight for all of your rights in the case to attain the best possible outcome.
When charged with a DUI, the most important step you can take to ensure that you receive the best defense in your case is to consult an experienced Pasadena DUI/DWI attorney. Many people encountering DUI charges do not know their basic rights and will, subsequently, relinquish them without even knowing they are doing so. A well educated and knowledgeable defense team knows exactly how to defend your rights and fight for either a lesser sentence or acquittal. Your defense team should know how to educate you about all of your rights, the possible outcomes and how exactly they will carry your defense out to the fullest extent of the law.

Hutton and Wilson takes extra steps to not only protect your confidentiality, but to help you navigate this complex system, so that you completely understand all of the actions and consequences.
