Do not underestimate the serious nature of a DUI charge. A DUI arrest is not to be taken lightly.
A DUI conviction may seriously affect your livelihood and even your ability to visit foreign countries.
If you have recently been charged with a DUI and/or refusal to submit to a breath test, you should immediately contact an attorney to discuss your particular situation. There are several DUI defense attorneys practicing on the Kenai Peninsula.
Keep this in mind: Not all attorneys are created equal.
For your sake, make sure you speak to a DUI attorney with extensive experience and familiarity with Alaska’s DUI laws. You get one chance to maximize your chances at obtaining a suitable outcome and minimizing economic loss; don’t waste it on a clever Yellow Page ad.
