Helping Fight for Your Rights
Being convicted of a DUI can change your life forever. If you are convicted of driving under the influence, you could be subjected to long jail sentences or steep fines.

With all of this on the line, it is critical that you call the Law Office of Ben Evan to begin preparation for your defense.
The Law Office of Ben Evan provides the representation you need to defend your rights. Your attorney can explain the legal process to you, stand up to prosecutors, and raise every defense possible to preserve your rights.
What to Expect When Charged with a DUI
Driving under the influence is a criminal charge like any other. For you to be convicted, the prosecution has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you were driving in an impaired state. If the prosecution meets their burden of proof, then the judge determines what sentence is appropriate. First-time offenders may be eligible for more lenient sentences if they are willing to participate in rehabilitation or restitution for their actions. An attorney can best help you through this process.
After You Have Been Arrested
At the early stages of the criminal process, it is important to collect as much information as possible. Expect your attorney to conduct a thorough investigation and ask you specific questions about your arrest and the alleged DUI.
As with any criminal arrest, police officers must have probable cause to arrest you for a DUI and must protect your constitutional rights for the entire time that you are in custody.
Your lawyer will aggressively attempt to determine:
- Whether the officer had probable cause to arrest you
- Whether field sobriety tests were conducted correctly
- Whether you were given your Miranda rights
- Whether the surrounding circumstances of the arrest complied with your rights
During Criminal Proceedings
After criminal proceedings have begun on your charge, your attorney will do everything possible to protect your interests and defend your rights, including:
- Prepare the best defense possible for your case
- Handle pre-trial motions and negotiations with the prosecution
- Represent you at trial
- Handle any post-conviction procedures, if necessary
