In Colorado, a DUI charge is taken seriously and forces a driver to go through two separate legal processes — the criminal process and a DMV license suspension hearing. This two-part procedure can lead to serious consequences, and it is wise to have an experienced attorney by your side. If accused, you must act within seven days of arrest to preserve your driving privileges by filing a license appeal with the DMV.

Breckenridge DUI Lawyer Handling Felony And Misdemeanor DUI Charges
When you are charged with a DUI, you have to take steps to protect your rights on two fronts. One is with the Colorado Department of Transportation and DMV. The other is with law enforcement and prosecution.
If you do not act immediately when you have been pulled over or charged with a DUI, you could face an automatic license suspension. This may occur even if you have not been found guilty of a DUI under criminal law. In criminal justice proceedings, if you do not create a strong argument for your defense, you could face steep fines, incarceration and a permanent criminal record.
What Is The Connection Between DUIs And Child Abuse Charges?
