DUI, DUI per se, DWAI, UDD

“Driving Under the Influence” means driving a motor vehicle or vehicle when a person has consumed alcohol or one or more drugs, or a combination of alcohol and one or more drugs, that effects the person to a degree that the person is substantially incapable, either mentally or physically, or both mentally and physically , to exercise clear judgment, sufficient physical control, or due care in the safe operation of a vehicle. C.R.S. §42-4-1301(1)(f)

According to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI), there were 29,449 arrests for DUI in Colorado in 2007. There were 1.43 million nationwide for the same year, according to the FBI. Thus, if you have been arrested for DUI, DUI per se, or DWAI, you are not alone.

Even if this is your first offense, the penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI) can be severe. These include: jail time, loss of driver’s license, probation, fines and court costs, community service, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) Victim Impact Panel, monitored sobriety, restitution, and attendance at alcohol education classes and therapy. Collateral consequences may include, but are not limited to: loss of employment, occupational license issues, a criminal record, problems traveling to some foreign countries, and higher auto insurance premiums.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
