Episode #010 – What happens after a DUI Arrest?

Do you know what happens after a DUI arrest? Who would you contact if you were only allowed one phone call? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, then your lack of knowledge at the time of arrest could hurt your situation at a later time.

DUI arrests happen every day, especially in a thriving, trendy city like Sacramento. Those who practice safe habits like using a designated driver or calling a cab are less likely to be arrested for a DUI. Do you practice these good habits when influenced by alcohol?

If you’re interested in avoiding complications due to a lack of knowledge, then invest 20 minutes to listen to this edition of The Law Show Sacramento where your host Angel Birch interviews Travis Black from Travis G. Black & Associates, Inc. about what happens after a DUI arrest.

There is never a good reason to drink and drive. KCRA Sacramento* reports that innocent bystanders are often the real victims, like a woman and her toddler who were struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver. This interview explains protecting your rights after such incidents.

Benefits of a Lawyer Who Is Familiar with DUI Law

The episode kicks off with an overview about Travis’ background and how it helps him not only understand the process of a DUI arrest, but also give his clients the best possible assistance.

Having a lawyer with a background in law enforcement can work to your advantage. It means having someone on your side who can predict what tricks the police will try to aggravate the situation.

If you make the mistake of drinking and driving, then getting pulled over and not knowing what comes next could help make the case against you that much stronger.

Knowing What to Do If You’re Arrested for a DUI

Next Travis explains the chances of your being taken to jail if you are pulled over by law enforcement and fail a field sobriety test. He also tackles these DUI-related questions:

  • What is the process I must go through before I can leave jail if arrested?
  • What happens to my personal items, like jewellery or a wallet, if I’m arrested?
  • What if I have a health issue? How would that affect my arrest?

Now ask yourself two questions: Am I at risk for a DUI? Do I know who I would call if arrested? If you answered “No” to either or both, then after listening to this podcast call Travis Black’s office to set up a consultation.

How a DUI Arrest Now Can Affect Future Driving Privileges

Travis then segues into the domino affect of being arrested for a DUI, and how it influences your future driving privileges. There is more to do than just hiring an attorney to represent you.

Driving is such a large part of the lives of Sacramento residents. A DUI can take that advantage away quicker than a 21-year-old enjoying their first legal shot of hard liquor.

Lawyers are there to make sure all processes are followed correctly. You could wind up with all charges dropped due to the negligence of an overworked police officer. Why not make an appointment with Travis Black to discuss how he’s helped others facing a DUI arrest.

The episode wraps up with Travis sharing some of the things he looks for when representing a client who was arrested for the charge of a DUI.
