Lawrence DUI and Traffic Offense Lawyer

When you have been pulled over and cited for DUI or for another traffic offense, including speeding or reckless driving, the natural inclination may be to go court by yourself and accept what the court gives you. You may mistakenly believe that there is little you can do or that there is little to gain by challenging the prosecution. You would be wrong – a DUI conviction or a traffic citation can have long-lasting effects on automobile insurance rates, job opportunities, and your emotional well-being.

We handle all matters related to an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI).When we represent you in a DUI criminal proceeding, we will thoroughly review all evidence put forth by the prosecution. Was the stop legal? Was there sufficient probable cause? Did the arresting officer properly advise you of your rights? Were field sobriety tests correctly administered? Was the breathalyzer test properly done?

At the Whitman Law Offices, we will zealously represent your interests at an administrative hearing regarding the suspension of your drivers’ license. You have 10 days to file an application for a hearing before you lose your license. Kansas has an implied consent law; if you refuse to take a breathalyzer or blood test, you will automatically lose your license for one year.

We also defend Douglas County residents on a broad range of traffic charges, from operating a vehicle while your license is under suspension or revocation to reckless driving and speeding. We understand the sense of urgency in criminal matters, but we urge you to contact an experienced attorney in all criminal matters. The rules of criminal procedure are complex and often unforgiving. If you try to navigate the criminal justice system on your own, you risk losing your rights and costing yourself a lot of money.
