Traffic Violation And DUI Defense To Protect Your License

Traffic stops and drunk driving arrests may be a common occurrence for law enforcement officers, but from the driver’s perspective, being pulled over is much more serious. One infraction can have an instant effect on your license status – something that most people rely on to help them get by day to day.

Since 1997, I have worked with individuals throughout St. Clair County, helping them protect their best interests in traffic violation defense and DUI cases. As an attorney and lifelong resident of Pell City, Alabama, I understand the nature of traffic stops and speeding tickets along local byways like Interstate 20 and I-59. I can bring a great deal of clarity to the criminal charge you face and determine what legal strategy is most likely to be effective in protecting your rights.

Contact the law firm of Stephanie Bain P.C. to schedule an initial consultation with an experienced traffic violation and DUI attorney.

Don’t Take Traffic Violations Lightly

It may not seem like a big deal at first, but paying a traffic ticket is the same as pleading guilty. If you have multiple violations, you could lose your driving privileges.

I can help you challenge traffic violations such as:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without a license
  • Passing a stopped school bus
  • Failure to yield the right of way

If too many points accumulate on your license, you could lose your license. It only takes 12-14 points in a two-year period ­to lose your license for 60 days.

DUI Defense

Every traffic violation can be serious, but drunk driving (DUI/DWI) is not just a traffic ticket. It can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony and carry heavy consequences. If you were pulled over, make sure to cooperate with law enforcement, but be careful in the statements you make, as they could further incriminate you.

I can help you seek defense against issues of:

  • First-offense DUIs/DWIs
  • Multiple DUIs/DWIs
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Chemical tests
  • Field sobriety tests
  • Law enforcement procedure
  • Automatic license suspension or revocation

Remember that being charged with a DUI/DWI, even if you are not proven guilty of drunk driving, may result in an automatic driver’s license suspension on the part of the Alabama Department of Public Safety. I can handle the administrative aspects of protecting your license as well as defense against the consequences in the criminal justice system. Make sure to work with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible if you have been charged with drunk driving.
