DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE

When driving privileges, a potential criminal record and even jail time are on the line, you deserve a lawyer who is ready and willing to fight on your behalf to challenge the government’s accusation that you were driving under the influence (DUI).

As an experienced Montana criminal defense attorney — I have been representing clients in court for more than 35 years— I know that these cases come down to which side can present the best evidence and make the most persuasive arguments. I am a former police officer, meaning that I understand how the government approaches DUI charges. Because I have spent years challenging prosecutors when they present evidence against my clients, I have learned how to most effectively rebut charges and position my clients for a favorable outcome.

DUI Defense You Deserve

My firm represents individuals charged with all forms of drunk driving-related offenses. I represent people charged with a DUI for the first time as well as repeat offenders. I help commercial truck drivers whose CDL (and their jobs) may be at stake in a DUI case. I also represent minors who are charged with minor in possession (MIP), whether on the road or in public.

The consequences for a DUI conviction in Montana can be steep, and may include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Fines
  • A suspension of your driver’s license
  • 10 points on your driving record (and a permanent mark on your record)
  • Increased car insurance premiums
  • Vehicle forfeiture
  • Installation of a ignition Interlock device
  • Chemical dependency treatment
  • Probation/parole supervision

Depending on the facts in your case, it may be best to pursue a plea bargain with the government, or take the case to court and make the prosecutor prove the charges against you. My clients value the fact that I always give them my upfront, well-informed advice, and the peace of mind knowing that I always do what is in their best interests.
