Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Rhode Island
Obtaining the services of an experienced DUI attorney in Rhode Island is crucial immediately after your DUI arrest.

You need a seasoned DUI attorney to guide you through and out of the process of beating your DUI charge.
A RI DUI stop and arrest has numerous elements which are regularly appealed throughout the RI judicial system. Our courts are constantly interpreting the DUI statutes and the law evolves accordingly. A strong defense depends on your attorney understanding all the intricacies of RI’s DUI law. Put yourself in a position to succeed in your DUI case and meet with our experienced Rhode Island DUI defense attorneys, a legal team who has mastered this area of the law and litigates DUI cases daily.
Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test (DUI) in Rhode Island
Unlike a DUI, a Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test is actually a civil violation. Refusals do not result in criminal consequences; however, the penalty for a refusal can be greater than that for a DUI. However, experienced Refusal attorneys know how to limit or eliminate the penalties associated with DUIs and Refusals. With the creation of “hardship licenses” in Rhode Island, our attorneys can ensure that you do not lose the ability to drive!
