After a client was arrested for a DUI, they faced jail time, fines, increased insurance rates, and several other potential consequences. This led them to reach out to Erika Valcarcel for assistance.

We immediately contacted the state regarding their DETER program, which could reduce a DUI charge to reckless driving if the program is completed. We argued that since it was the client’s first offense, no aggravating factors existed, and the client cooperated with law enforcement, they should be eligible for the program.

Upon completing the program, the client’s charges were reduced to reckless driving. On top of that, we helped the client keep their driver’s license throughout the process.
