Let Paul F. Sherman Help You Resolve Your DUII

Driving while under the influence of intoxicants, commonly known as DUII (also known as DUI or DWI) or drunk driving is generally a Class A Misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $6250 fine and a driver's license suspension. You can be arrested for DUII for merely having alcohol on your breath or for driving while under the influence of prescription medication or marijuana if you are deemed "impaired" by the arresting officer. There is a zero tolerance (0.0 BAC) for minors driving under the influence.

  • Your tickets; the court process, license suspension appeals, and hardship permits;

  • Appearing with you at ALL court appearances (in some counties a retained attorney can waive your first appearance altogether);
  • Completing the diversion petition; affidavit of eligibility, and your petition to enter a plea of guilty or no contest;
