If you have been accused of a DUI, it is in your best interest to contact Tobin Law Office. An experienced DUI lawyer will help you stand a much better chance in achieving optimal outcomes.
    While DUI situations vary, the general rule of thumb is that if an officer suspects you are driving under the influence, they can offer you either a saliva test, blood test, or urine test, although a breath test is the first option. However, if a breath test is refused or cannot be obtained, the officer can require a blood test instead.
    If you are facing charges of drug possession, distribution, or manufacturing, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer immediately. Conviction of drug involvement is considered a felony and receives severe, lasting consequences, including jail time, hefty fines, and permanent marks on your record. A lawyer can build a strong defense for your rights.

    The long-term consequences of assault are no small matter, although punishment varies depending on the situation. Assaults typically fall into the categories of acting recklessly, self-defense, or provocation, and penalties can fall within a variety of misdemeanor punishments. It is best to seek the guidance of a lawyer to ensure your rights are protected throughout the case.

    Shoplifting cases are typically resolved within 60-90 days, although the actual time can vary based on how busy the courts are, or how complicated the case may be.
