V. Erik Petersen

Charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence)?  I can make sure you get the best possible result.  A first time offender program known as ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) avoids all jail time, significantly reduces any applicable license suspension and gives you the ability to maintain a clean record.

House Arrest is often an option as way to avoid the mandatory jailtime associated with second and subseguent DUI charges. 

Going to trial and fighting for your innocence is always an option.  I have handled many cases through trial with great success. 

EXCITING NEWS!!!! Starting on August 25, 2017 many DUI offenders will become eligible for an Ignition Interlock License.  This new law will allow many DUI offenders to drive as long as they qualify and comply with the ignition interlock protocol.  




Experience counts when it comes to getting the best possible result.  Whether it's a first offense or not I can help you avoid jailtime and reduce any applicable license suspensions.
