DUI - Driving Under the Influence

DUI - Driving Under the Influence If you have been charged with Driving under the Influence (DUI), of either alcohol or drugs (legal or not) it is extremely important that you immediately contact a drunk driving lawyer. In Connecticut, after you have been charged with DUI you have a right to an administrative hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles before your driving privileges are suspended. You must request a hearing from the DMV, usually within 10 days of the charges or else your license will be automatically suspended. You will also be subject to court fines and mandatory jail time.

Under Connecticut law, operating a motor vehicle is illegal if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is over 0.08 or if you are under the influence of any drugs (legal or not), which could impair you ability to operate a vehicle. If you are a repeat DUI offender, the subsequent charge does not allow a BAC over 0.07. The state allows individuals that successfully participate in the Connecticut Alcohol Education Program to wipe their permanent record clean of a DUI offense. This is allowed 1 time every 10 years so long as there are no intervening DUI convictions.

At Ormond Romano, we vigorously defend individuals charged with drunk driving. Our attorneys are all retired police officers and have over 60 years of police experience prior to beginning their law practice. We have years of experience handling other traffic offenses, including assault with a motor vehicle, vehicular manslaughter and driving under suspension. We personally work with clients throughout Fairfield County and the entire state of Connecticut.

If you or someone you know is in need of an experienced DUI attorney, please do not hesitate to contact us to set up an appointment. We will provide you with a detailed evaluation at no cost to you. For your convenience, our office can be open evenings and weekends by appointment and we accept all major credit cards - MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.
