Common questions after a drunk driving charge

After an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) in Tennessee, you probably have many questions. Our lawyers can answer questions such as:

Fighting DUI/DWI charges in Tennessee

Even for a first offense, conviction for DUI in Tennessee means between two days and nearly a year jail, a minimum $350.00 fine plus court costs, and the loss of your driver's license for a year. The court may also order you to pick up litter on the side of the road, to attend a DUI education course or attend AA meetings, and to get an ignition interlock device on your car. Subsequent DUI convictions carry harsher penalties - including possible forfeiture of your vehicle.

At Mueller Law Office, we provide vigorous and effective defense against drunk-driving charges. We will investigate the qualifications and training of the police officer who administered the Breathalyzer test or field sobriety tests. If there were irregularities, we will file motions to exclude the evidence. If the court dismisses your DUI charge, defense attorney Mueller can help get the charge expunged from the public record.

Boating Under the Influence (BUI)

Just like drinking and driving, operating a boat or any watercraft such as a Jet Ski or Ski-Doo while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a crime. Individuals convicted of operating a boat with a blood alcohol level of .08 or more face serious penalties, including hefty fines, the loss of their boating license, and jail time. Depending on the location of the arrest, federal penalties may also apply for boating under the influence (BUI).
