Colorado DUI & DWAI Defense Attorney

Every Colorado resident is probably familiar with driving under the influence (DUI) statutes. If a driver takes a Breathalyzer test and blows .08 or higher, that is considered driving under the influence. A series of penalties are triggered depending on the offender's previous record. Furthermore, there is a second, less-well-known impaired driving offense — driving while ability impaired (DWAI). The threshold is lower, a blood alcohol level of .05 to .08.

Let our skilled team take on your legal burden after being pulled over on a Colorado roadway. Being charged with DUI is one of the most stressful events that can happen in a person's life. Our DUI lawyers in Colorado try to absorb this burden as much as possible. We always want our clients to know that they are not alone, and they will have an advocate fighting for them, no matter what they are facing.

DUI & DWAI Penalties in Colorado

Among the sanctions for a first offense are a nine-month license suspension, the prospect of jail time, fines up to $1,000 and community service. For example, a driver convicted of a first DWAI offense won’t face a license suspension, but eight points are tacked on the driver's record, assuming you have agreed to either a Breathalyzer or other blood alcohol test. If you haven’t, automatic license suspensions, revocations, fines, jail time, and community service may follow.

If you have consented to the test, there is a complex web of other offense thresholds and penalty possibilities, all depending on your record and your age. In short, either a DUI or a DWAI is far and above a run-of-the-mill traffic ticket. It’s not a situation to trust to inexperienced people unfamiliar with the law. Charles Fife and Associates concentrates a substantial percentage of time to DUI and DWAI cases, having handled more than 2,500 to date.

What is Colorado's Expressed Consent DUI Law?

Colorado's expressed consent law states that by driving a motor vehicle, you are automatically giving what's known as "expressed consent," meaning you are giving permission to undergo a chemical test should you be pulled over for suspicion of a DUI. If you are pulled over and refuse to take the test, you'll be required to have an Ignition Interlock for two years.
