This month’s Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up covers the stories of multiple celebrities who were recently arrested on suspicion of intoxicated driving.
But the Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up is about more than just recounting the stories of celebrities who have been arrested for drunk driving.
The DUI Round Up is also meant to highlight the legal options available to drivers (celebrity or not) after being arrested for driving under the influence.
Too often, accused drivers plead guilty to DWI or DUI without understanding the many legal options available to them. There are many challenges that can be made to a driving under the influence charge.
At Levow DWI Law, we are passionate about defending the rights of drivers and are dedicated to helping each of our clients understand their legal options after a DUI arrest. These cases can be won and we win them routinely for our clients. Furthermore, we are committed to protecting the privacy of each and every one of our clients. As a result, you will not find our clients on a list like this.
