If you or someone you love has been arrested for DUI in Douglas County, then it would be in your best interests to contact Douglas County DUI lawyer Chris Cessna for help. Unlike other attorneys, he will not simply take your money and then tell you there is nothing that can be done about your situation. Instead, he will fight tooth and nail to search for errors or flaws in the prosecution's case that may get your charges and penalties reduced, if not dropped.

Below, the firm's areas of practice are hi-lighted; if you need more information please contact Mr. Cessna directly, as he is here to help you in every way possible.

Blood Alcohol Science
Due to the fact that DUI cases rely so heavily on blood and breath tests, it's important that your attorney has a thorough foundation of knowledge about blood alcohol science as it relates to blood and breath tests. Attorney Chris Cessna has the legal training necessary to properly defend those arrested for DUI because of his deep understanding of blood alcohol science. Read more about blood alcohol science

Blood/Breath Tests
When a person is suspected of DUI, the police officer will ask him or her to submit to a chemical test in the form of either a breath test or a blood test. Both of these tests are designed to measure the driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Read more about blood/breath tests

Boating Under the Influence
A boating under the influence (BUI) charge is very similar to a DUI. Whether an automobile or a boat is involved, operating either piece of machinery while intoxicated can lead to devastating consequences. Whether you were caught operating a speed boat, a sail boat, a Jet Ski, or any other type of vessel while intoxicated by alcohol, you could be facing serious penalties. Read more about boating under the influence

Drugs & DUI
To many peoples' surprise, they can be arrested and convicted of DUI for driving under the influence of an illegal drug such as marijuana or methamphetamines, or even an over the counter drug such as Benadryl or a lawfully prescribed medication. In recent years law enforcement has expanded their assessments of impaired drivers to include those who are under the influence of a legal or an illicit drug. Read more about drugs & DUI

DUI Penalties
For a first time DUI, the penalties may include up to 1 year in jail, up to $1,000 in monetary fines, from 48 to 96 hours community service and driver's license suspension. For a second DUI offense, the person faces up to 1 year in jail, up to $1,500 in fines, from 60 to 120 hours of community service and driver's license suspension. Read more about DUI penalties

DUI Process
The DUI process begins when you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving. The police officer will ask you to perform a series of field sobriety tests in order to give them probable cause to arrest you. Next, they will ask you to submit to a breath or blood test. Read more about the DUI process

DMV Hearings
When a person is arrested for DUI in Douglas County, their driver's license will be automatically suspended until they address the situation at a hearing with the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles. After an arrest, you have just 7 days to schedule your DMV hearing and if you fail to do this on time, you waive your right to challenge your license suspension at a future date. Read more about DMV hearings

Field Sobriety Tests
There are three main types of standardized field sobriety tests that are commonly administered during the initial DUI traffic stop. They are: the walk and turn test, the one-leg stand and the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. These tests were established in order to help police officers determine a driver's intoxication level. Read more about field sobriety tests

Why a DUI Lawyer?
If you are facing DUI charges in Douglas County, you are probably wondering about the benefits of hiring a private attorney. A DUI conviction may result in imprisonment, probation, fines and driver's license suspension, not to mention community service, alcohol rehabilitation and sky high insurance premiums. Read more about why a DUI lawyer

Out of State Drivers
Contrary to popular belief, most states these days do share DMV information. So, if you were arrested for DUI in Colorado but you live in another state, the chances are your arrest here will result in a suspended license in your home state. Since you can run but you can't hide, hiring an attorney can offer many benefits. Read more about out of state drivers

Vehicular Assault
When people drive under the influence, it's not uncommon for accidents to occur. However, when a drunk driver causes an accident that leaves another person injured, they can be charged with vehicular assault. Vehicular assault is a much more serious offense than DUI. Read more about vehicular assault

Vehicular Homicide
It's a well known fact that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs increases your chances of a fatal accident. When you drink and drive and another person, be it a passenger, another driver, a pedestrian, or bicyclist is killed as a result, then you face serious vehicular homicide charges. Vehicular homicide is a felony offense in the state of Colorado, which could change the course of your life forever. Read more about vehicular homicide
