Hartford DUI Lawyers
Protect Your Driving Privileges & Clean Record After a DUI Arrest
Accusations of drunk driving are much more serious than ordinary traffic violation citations such as speeding tickets. If you are convicted for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI), you will have a criminal record.
Even being accused of DUI can cause you to lose your driving privileges. If you refused or failed a breath, blood, or urine test after being stopped on suspicion of DUI, you have just seven days to request an administrative hearing before the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles or your license may be suspended.
To prevent having your driver's license suspended for 45 days or longer, contact our Hartford DUI attorneys as soon as possible after your DUI arrest.

Misdemeanor & Felony DUI Charges in Connecticut
In Connecticut, many DUI offenses are charged as misdemeanors. This includes first time offenders who are over the age of 21 found to be driving with blood alcohol content (BAC) greater than .08%; commercial license holders driving with a BAC greater than .04%; or those under 21 years of age driving with a BAC of .02% or more.
Felony changes may result from persistent DUI offenders, as defined in CGS § 53A-40F, those who have been charged with vehicular assault or manslaughter in addition to DUI, and those who have previous DUI or vehicular crime convictions in other states. Our Hartford DUI attorneys will take your previous criminal history into account when building your defense.
