Defending Clients Who Are Facing DUI Charges in Hinds, Madison, & Rankin Counties
When arrested for drunk driving charges, there is the possibility of jail time and monetary fines; however, if convicted, many other areas of your life can be affected. Along with the possible suspension and revocation of your driver's license, your driving record will be tainted for several years.
Mississippi DUI Laws
Mississippi law states that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.8% or more. When under the age of 21, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of .02% BAC or higher.
For individuals who are operating commercial vehicles, BAC must be .04% or lower. If you have been pulled over and arrested for allegedly failing to comply with the maximum BAC level requirements, our Jackson DUI attorney is prepared to navigate with you through the complexities of your case.
Your first trial date will take place in a municipal or justice court. If convicted, we can assist you in the appeals process in a county or circuit court. Based on the merits of your case, we can fight for a new trial on your behalf. This appeal must be filed within 30 days of your conviction date.
