The Best OVI Defense Is A Good Offense
If your case is very serious we might recommend an alcohol assessment. This can help to begin the mitigation process. It assures the prosecutor and judge that you are taking the allegation seriously. It also goes a long way to helping get your driving privileges if you have a case with aggravating circumstances. Examples of aggravating circumstances include a prior DUI conviction, accident that involves an occupied car or injury, or a very high test. Our lawyers will be able to evaluate your case and situation to give you advice about whether this is appropriate in your case.
Alcohol and Drug Assessment Overview
Your assessment will be conducted by a licensed counselor or physician, who will perform tests to determine whether you have a drug or alcohol problem. Through testing and exams, the person administering the assessment will also propose a treatment plan based on your situation. They can then follow up on your progress as you work through treatment and make adjustments as necessary.
The court will review the recommendations of your counselor and track your progress in treatment. Successful completion of the program can help convince prosecutors to reduce charges and increase the likelihood that judges will be lenient in sentencing.
