Kansas DUI Laws

DUI Defense Attorney in Overland Park

No matter where you go or how good you think you feel driving while intoxicated is always dangerous. If arrested for drinking and driving, you face serious consequences. The penalties for this offense, however, vary from state to state, which is why it is important to know what consequences you are facing if charged with DUI in Overland Park, Olathe, or anywhere else in Kansas.

You will have to deal with two different legal matters:

  1. An administrative driver's license suspension case
  2. A criminal case

Administrative Driver's License Hearing

After being charged with drunk driving, a Kansas resident has 14 days to request an administrative hearing before their license is suspended. For cases in which the driver was informed of the suspension by mail, they may have three additional days to respond to the notice. Regardless of how much time you have, our firm recommends that you call us immediately to make an appointment so that we can file a request on your behalf to avoid any mistakes.
