At the Law Offices of Andrew C. Janecki, I have a thorough understanding of the processes and issues involved in DUI cases. Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be possible to have the charges or sentence against you reduced or dismissed.

Don't Lose Your License After A DUI Arrest

After you are arrested for DUI, you have only 10 days to request a DMV hearing before your license is automatically suspended. For this reason, it is essential you schedule a DMV hearing and contact an attorney to begin preparing your defense.

DUI Arrests And Your Pretrial Motion

Hiring an attorney to begin the process of your defense at the pretrial phase is often an effective means for avoiding going to trial later. At your arraignment or after you've hired an attorney, you can submit a pretrial motion to exclude certain kinds of evidence or dismiss the charges against you.

If there are good reasons to believe the arresting officer did not have reasonable suspicion to pull you over, failed to properly conduct the field sobriety test or improperly administered a DUI chemical test, a pretrial motion provides an excellent opportunity to challenge the charges against you. Additionally, during a pretrial hearing, a prosecutor may offer you a reduced sentence or charge in exchange for pleading guilty.
