DUI FIRST APPEARANCE:

Paul A. Lewis, Attorney at Law, www.lewisatlawesq.com. After you are arrested for a DUI, you will make your first appearance, commonly known as an arraignment. The arraignment is a court procedure during which you enter a plea and arrange other details, including bond and the scheduling your next appearance/proceeding in your case. It is vital that you evaluate your case before deciding what to do next – especially if you want to fight your case. When you first appear and you don’t have an attorney with you, the judge will ask if you are represented and if not whether you plan to hire a lawyer. If you are represented, an attorney will handle all of these details and advise you on a direct course of action.

Be Safe and Enjoy the Rally. . .
