After you fill out the form above, you will be put in touch with up to 3 experienced Sumter County, AL DUI attorneys.  You will speak with these attorneys and determine which one is right for you.

Once you meet with your attorney, you will likely be asked, "What happened during your arrest?" As you try to recall the incident, sometimes you were so overwhelmed that it can be hard to keep track of exactly what happened. That is why the staff at 1 800 DUI Laws usually recommends that people write down every detail about their arrest as soon as they can. Having a written record of what happened can help you remember and can assist you for when you meet with your attorney and the judge.

Here are some details to remember (if you can) when writing down and remembering you DUI arrest:

  • What the police officer said to you.
  • What you said to the police officer.
  • Where were you coming from?
  • Where you drinking? How many drinks did you have?
  • Did you take a breathalyzer test?
  • Did you perform a field sobriety test? What tests did you perform? How did they do?
  • Were you aggressive with the officer?
  • Did the police officer seem aggressive with you?
  • Were you read your Miranda rights?
  • What happened when you were taken to the police station?
  • Did you have any passengers in the car?
  • Did you make any traffic mistakes?
  • Was anybody hurt? Was there any property damage?

These are just some things to keep in mind. If there are other details you find important, don't hesitate to include them in your notes. It's always better to err on the side of too much information when you meet with your attorney than too little information.
