For a DUI Arrest

For a DUI Arrest

Denver DUI/DWAI Defense Attorney

In Colorado, if you’ve been arrested and charged with drunk driving (with a blood alcohol level above .08), you have 7 days to request a Department of Motor Vehicle hearing or you will temporarily lose your driver’s license.

If you miss the deadline to request a hearing, you will not have another opportunity to defend yourself or to retain your driver’s license until your criminal case comes to court, often months later.

After a drunk driving arrest, you cannot afford to wait. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your driver’s license. Call me, defense attorney Beth Krulewitch at 888-386-7578 or contact me online. I will defend you at the motor vehicle hearing and in criminal court.

Experienced Defense When it Matters Most

For more than 20 years I have defended clients in Colorado courts facing a wide range of criminal charges. I began my career in the Public Defender’s office, where for 11 years I provided my clients the high-quality defense they deserved. I handled thousands of criminal cases in that time. I now have a private practice defending people against criminal charges, as well as handling criminal appeals.

From my offices in Denver and Aspen, I defend clients (including drivers with CDLs) across the state of Colorado against any and all drunk driving charges, including:

  • DUI (driving under the influence)
  • DWAI (driving while ability impaired – a lesser offense)
  • DUID (driving under the influence of drugs)
  • Repeat offender DUI
  • Traffic Violations

In addition to the more serious offense of drunk driving, I also represent people who face license suspension, license revocation, or jail time for serious traffic violations, or who are at risk of being designated a “habitual traffic offender” under Colorado motor vehicle law.

There are several ways to be deemed a habitual offender, including:

    • Accumulating three convictions in a 7-year period for major traffic violations such as:
    • DUI, DWAI or driving while a habitual user of a controlled substance
      Reckless driving
