Make plans in advance for getting home after the party

This weekend and the couple of days that follow are going to be a time for parties and barbecues. While you certainly should go and have fun with your friends, you need to make sure that you are responsible as you do so.

One thing that you should do is make sure that you have a designated driver or another safe way to get home if you plan on drinking a few beers or other alcohol while you are out. We know that this isn't always easy, but you could save yourself a lot of grief if you handle these plans ahead of time.

We know that things happen and plans might not work out how you intended. If you are out drinking and find that you need to drive home, please make sure that you have exhausted all other options. Ask if you can crash at someone's house for the night, try to get a ride sharing program to pick you up or walk home if that is feasible.

If you had no other option than to drive home after drinking, you might end up seeing the backseat of a police car and the inside of a jail cell. We can help you learn about the steps you need to take to start fighting the drunk driving charge.

We understand that you have some concerns and questions about your case. We can answer these and help you make a plan to address the charges. Make sure that you don't wait too long because some aspects of your case might be time sensitive.
