Skilled DUI Defense and Criminal Defense Representation

A drunk driving conviction is a very serious matter that can have a lasting impact on your life. If you are facing DUI/DWI charges, it is extremely important to trust your defense to a skilled and aggressive criminal defense lawyer.

Whether you are a first time DUI offender or are facing charges for a subsequent DUI, turn to the law office of James E. Bruce, Jr., Attorney at Law in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. We provide thorough and zealous representation for clients who have been charged with driving under the influence. In general, drunk driving charges should be addressed as soon as possible in order to minimize the potential penalties.

Under Kentucky law, it is illegal for any motorist to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. A motorist may also be charged with a DUI if their driving is obviously impaired despite having a BAC of less than .08. In addition, the motorist need not have consumed only alcohol in order to be charged with a DUI; they could also have consumed drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol.

Driver's License Suspension

We provide clients with vigorous and dedicated advocacy at all DMV hearings. These administrative hearings determine if an individual's driving privileges will be suspended.

Violation of Your Civil Rights

As part of our thorough investigation, we will examine the traffic stop and the circumstances leading up to the arrest. Law enforcement reports, reasons for the traffic stop, blood tests, and breathalyzer results must all be carefully scrutinized when structuring a strong drunk driving defense.

Attorney James E. Bruce, Jr. has been representing clients in DUI defense matters for over 30 years and is able to determine whether your rights were violated at any stage of your case from the initial traffic stop and arrest to the interrogation and trial.
