French Quarter Personal Injury Attorneys
The French Quarter and the City of New Orleans are known for their good times and fun atmosphere. Some of the festivals that occur in the area are the French Quarter Festival, Mardi Gras, Sugar Bowl, and the Essence Festival. Many residents and tourists of the city enjoy these festivities that are offered in a reasonable and safe manner. However, some people may enjoy the atmosphere so much that it will lead them into a jail cell. Driving under the influence has become a serious criminal offense over the years and can lead to harsh consequences. If a person is arrested for a DUI/DWI, then your case can either follow two distinct tracks. In the first track you can be charged in Traffic Court with the criminal offense of DUI/DWI. The second track isn Quasi-Criminal, involving an Administrative Hearing to determine if your driver’s license should be suspended. The Administrative Hearing is not automatic and must be requested in writing. Due to the harsh consequences that can arise, if you are arrested for a DUI/DWI the best advice one can give is to hire a local attorney that has the experience to handle these types of cases.
