Rochester DUI Attorneys
At Dilaveri Law Firm we understand that for a good number of people, a DUI arrest is their first encounter with the criminal justice system. We appreciate just how frightening this experience can be, and how you can feel all alone and not completely understand what is happening. After the initial shock of the arrest has subsided, all you want to do is plead guilty and put this behind you. However a DUI is not like a traffic ticket that you just pay and move on. There are significant consequences to a DUI guilty plea. There are civil issues related to driver’s licenses, license plates, car forfeiture (the government’s taking of your property) that will not even be discussed in your criminal case, but that you will have to deal with afterwards. In fact, you must raise these civil issues dealing with licenses and forfeiture, and you must do so within the strict timelines set by law, otherwise any defense that you might have had will be waived. We can help you assert your rights. That is why it is crucial that you contact us so that we can provide you with all the information necessary for you to make an informed decision. Our goal is to help you understand the DUI process, to aggressively assert your rights throughout your case, and to make sure that you are not alone.

As noted, DUI law encompasses both criminal and civil legal proceedings and there are numerous issues that can come up. The laws are complex and changing very rapidly. The legislature is constantly increasing DUI penalties. Court decisions change the DUI landscape almost monthly.
You likely have many questions, such as:
- What kind of penalties might I face?
- What consequences might I face besides jail and fines?
- How long will this take?
- When can I get my license back?
