If I'm charged with a DWI, what is the first thing I should do?

 

Q: If I am charged with a DWI, what is the first thing I should do?

A: When you are charged with a DWI, the first thing you should do is ask to call your lawyer. The police officer has to allow you time to call your lawyer so your lawyer can then advise you as to whether you should continue to speak to the police officer and exactly what you should do from that stage forward. But immediately call your lawyer, and let your lawyer take over the situation.
