Provo, Utah (July 9, 2012) – Gale & Kawai Law Group is offering legal representation as well as consulting and advisory services for Utah residents facing DUI citations. Richard Gale and Dusty Kawai, each a trusted Utah DUI lawyer, are experienced in advising accused parties of their rights and counseling individuals on what can be done to help mitigate any future effects of a DUI charge.
Like other states, Utah has set the blood alcohol content (BAC) limit at 0.08%, or 0.08 g of alcohol per 100 mL of blood. The term DUI (driving under the influence) is used when an individual's driving has been impaired by the use of drugs or alcohol. It is often used interchangeably with the term DWI (driving while intoxicated/impaired), although a DUI is a typically the lesser offense in jurisdictions where both terms are used.
BAC test results are critical pieces of evidence a Utah criminal lawyer can use to defend the accused in a DUI case. This is because a police officer who believes that a driver is too impaired to continue driving may still arrest the driver regardless of whether he or she passes the field sobriety test.
If an individual is arrested for a DUI violation, it is important that he or she immediately contact the kind of DUI lawyer Utah residents trust, since drivers are only given 10 days to complete and file the needed paperwork for the Driver License Division hearing. A DUI lawyer in Utah can assist the driver with this paperwork and advise him or her on the best way to proceed.
