 DUI Information

When you are arrested for DUI in Alabama, there are two different levels of enforcement.  The first is the criminal charge of DUI, which occurs in court on the judicial level.  The second is the suspension of your license by the Alabama Department of Public Safety, which occurs on an administrative level outside of the court system.  The firm's Birmingham DUI attorneys can assist you with your DUI charge on both levels.

Your driver license can be suspended, revoked or canceled in Alabama after a criminal conviction for DUI.  Alternatively, the Alabama Department of Public Safety can suspend your license 45 days from the date of your arrest, despite whether a conviction has been entered.  The length of this suspension depends upon the number of “alcohol or drug-related enforcement contacts” during the preceding 5 year period.

Depending upon the type of officer that made the arrest, the jurisdiction in which you were arrested, and the number of DUIs you've had during the preceding 5 years, your criminal charge may be brought in an Alabama municipal, district, or circuit court.  Many Alabama courts offer a referral program for first-time offenders.  The Birmingham DUI attorneys at Meadows & Howell can negotiate with prosecutors to have you entered into a referral program so that your DUI charge is removed from your record.  Contact the firm today to receive a free consultation with a Birmingham DUI attorney regarding your specific options.
