Got a DUI? What Should You Do Next? By Becky Kate, Legal Brand Marketing

Things couldn't get worse, it seems. You got arrested for a DUI and it feels
as if your life is over. Are you going to be able to drive again? Are you
ever going to get over the shame and embarrassment of this offense? Are you
now known as a criminal by your state? Is your life completely over?

It does seem like a DUI can ruin your life. In each state, DUI laws are
getting harsher year by year. You can lose your license, pay a heavy fine,
spend time in jail and even have your car equipped with an ignition
interlock device for a really long time.

However, with the right mindset and a responsible attitude, there is hope.
This is going to be a stressful and complicated point in your life, but if
you act quickly and take an active role, you will get through this and
eventually be able to move on with your life.

Act Quickly

The worst thing you can do is nothing. Don't wallow in your misery and
hopelessness - take control of the situation and get responsible.

1. Contact an experienced DUI attorney right away. You don't have to
plead guilty. You don't know all your rights or laws and regulations like an
experienced DUI attorney does. If you're unsure about where to start, I
recommend calling 1800 DUI LAWS (800 384 5297) or going to
http://www.1800DUILaws.com. This is a service that connects you with DUI lawyers near you. The consultations are FREE, and you deserve to speak with someone who knows DUI laws, in and out.

I know that money may be an issue. It seems to be the case for many of us
these days. Speak to your lawyer about how you can work out the payments.
Your freedom is worth the expense. Not to mention that a DUI will end up costing more in the long run. By many estimates, you'll end up paying $10,000 - $12,000
with a DUI conviction. (This cost comes from increased car insurance, lost
work days, taxi charges if you don't have a license, DUI classes, fines and

Take an Active Role

Remember this is your DUI; you need to be responsible and do what is best for you.
