Located in the hills southeast of Birmingham, Alabama, Mountain Brook is one of the most beautiful communities in the entire state. As one of the most affluent suburbs of the state's largest city, the three villages that make up the city are home to approximately 20,000 residents. This idyllic community is surrounded by nature preserves and is widely considered to be one of the best places to raise a family in the entire southeastern United States. Mountain Brook has also had its fair share of famous residents, including actress Courtney Cox - who is best known for her role as Monica on the hit NBC show Friends.
Being charged with a DUI is a serious matter that is accompanied with many potentially severe consequences. After being arrested, it is important to contact a knowledgeable Mountain Brook DUI attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are preserved. In Alabama it is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle if they cannot do so safely. Additionally, it is illegal to drive a car while your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is .08 percent or higher. Generally, a person's BAC is affected by: the number of alcoholic drinks consumed, the alcoholic concentration of those drinks, the person's weight, and the time interval between the first drink and the last drink. The important point to understand is that even if your BAC is lower than the legal limit, you can still be prosecuted under Alabama law.
A skilled DUI attorney can often get a DUI charge dismissed. There are well-founded legal and scientific defenses to a DUI charge that allow a good defense attorney to win cases both before trial and in court. This does not mean that all cases result in a dismissal. Every case is unique, and sometimes a "win" means minimizing or eliminating jail time, or getting a reduced charge.
