If you are faced with charges relating to any form of driving offence, obtaining timely legal advice is in your best interest. This area of law is complex and requires a knowledgeable, experienced counsel. When you contact Donnell Law Group, you can rest assured that you’re contacting experienced DUI lawyers you can trust.

Being found guilty of a driving-related offence can have serious repercussions, even for a first offence. The penalties become more severe for subsequent offenders.

DUI Charges and Defence: DUI, Care and Control and Breathalyzer Tests

A DUI charge is one of the more serious driving offences possible. From our office in Keswick, we are conveniently placed to send a DUI lawyer to Richmond Hill and neighboring areas to assist you. In the meantime, here’s what you should keep in mind if you’re under arrest:

Blood Alcohol Concentration

In Canada it is a criminal offence to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08, or 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. If you’re arrested after going above this threshold, contact us as soon as possible. A DUI offence means suspension of your license for a minimum of five days, and possibly worse consequences that can seriously disrupt your life. At Donnell Law Group we have the experience with these scenarios to help you.

Control of the Vehicle

If you have care and control of a vehicle, meaning you are responsible for the vehicle at any given time, you can also be charged with a DUI even if you weren’t driving the vehicle. Lawyers from our office are also experienced at fighting such charges. If a dangerous situation arises when you were not behind the wheel, then our lawyers are often able to find the potential for reduced or dismissed charges.

Breathalyzer

Failure to cooperate with law enforcement on the scene can result in further charges. While you have the right to remain silent, you do not have the right to refuse breath testing. It is in your best interest to cooperate.

However, if you find yourself with additional charges because of refusing to cooperate with the police or provide breath samples, our DUI lawyers assisting Richmond Hill and the surrounding areas can still help. Allow us to attempt to reduce your charges by contacting one of our experienced DUI lawyers.
