Our Overland Park DUI Lawyers Are Skilled Trial Attorneys

Our Overland Park DUI defense attorneys are aggressive trial advocates who work hard for our clients.

The Fourth Amendment gives you the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. Evidence collected in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights can be suppressed. JHC’s Overland Park DUI defense attorneys scrutinize the facts of every case we undertake to determine whether we can exclude incriminating material from trial.

We Are Ready for Anything

When you’ve been cited or arrested for a DUI, we are ready and able to hit the ground running in your defense. We are adept at uncovering problems associated with the initial car stop, field sobriety tests, the arrest process, and the results of any test measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC). We are experienced with test refusals and will advise you regarding how it affects your case. Our Overland Park DUI lawyers also frequently defend related charges—from open container, minor in possession, and minor in consumption to leaving the scene of an accident, vehicular homicide, and involuntary manslaughter.

Is alcohol consumption the only basis for a DUI charge?

Many people think driving under the influence (DUI) is synonymous with drunk driving, but alcohol is only one substance that justifies a DUI charge. In Kansas, DUI is defined as operating or attempting to operate any vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs to a degree that renders the person incapable of safely driving a vehicle. You can be charged with and convicted for DUI based on drug use—even when the drug you used is legal and prescribed by a doctor.

Can a Kansas DUI be expunged?

Yes. If your DUI was committed before July 1, 2006, expungement is available after 5 years. For DUIs committed on or after July 1, 2006, a 5-year waiting period applies to first offenses and a 10-year waiting period applies to second or subsequent offenses—except for DUIs committed between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015, which have a 7-year waiting period. JHC’s Overland Park DUI lawyers are happy to help you clear your record with a DUI expungement.

Can I plea bargain out of a DUI?

Kansas law prohibits prosecutors from dropping DUI charges based on a plea agreement. However, your attorney can negotiate the terms of your sentence in the event you plead guilty to a DUI charge.
