Mississippi DUI lawyer Vic Carmody, Jr. has successfully fought for the freedom of thousands of former clients over a 40-year criminal defense career, and he will do the same for you. A large majority of drivers arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs have never had an encounter with law enforcement until now, and the whole incident is bewildering. All you know is you left jail with a stack of paperwork that tells you what you were charged with and when you are expected in court for what is called your arraignment.

You can go to your first court date alone and represent yourself, but we do not recommend it. At the very least give Mr. Carmody a quick call and get some of your questions answered. Vic knows Mississippi DUI law through and through and is a warrior in the courtroom. Act quickly because your driver’s license can be suspended even before your first court appearance if you do nothing.
