If you are arrested or questioned by police for DUI or any other charge, be respectful but politely decline to engage in conversation with anyone about the alleged incident. You must clearly say the words “I want to speak with a lawyer.”

Police are excellent interrogators and will ask for your help to “clear this all up.” If you keep talking, they will continue your interrogation, hoping to catch you in a lie or force you into a confession.

Avoid this trap by saying the words “I want to speak with a lawyer” and then remain completely silent until given your constitutional right to call a criminal defense law firm.

Remember, you are not required to assist the police with their investigation.  Be respectful but politely decline to engage in conversation with the police (or anyone else) about the incident. Only discuss the facts surrounding your arrest with an experienced criminal defense attorney.


Hiring a Colorado Springs DUI attorney to defend your case will give you an immediate advantage. Why? Because most county-level prosecutors are fresh out of law school.

Yes, you read that right – the prosecutor that’s plotting to ruin your life with a drunk driving charge is likely a deputy district attorney who is only in their mid to late twenties. These young attorneys join the prosecuting attorney’s office for the chance to get courtroom experience they can apply a few years later when they transition to defense private practice.

Along the way, they do not want to risk losing cases at trial. Their resumes will take a hit if they don’t maintain a very high percentage of convictions. So they look to steamroll timid and unprepared public defenders and take advantage of attorneys who are weak, inexperienced, and avoid jury trials.

So when you hire the widely renowned, thoroughly prepared, and highly effective DUI attorney Mike Moran – it’s now a different ballgame for the prosecution. They instantly know there is zero chance for an easy win in your case, so they pick their battles.

When you are pulled over, you will be required to provide proof of insurance, and show your driver’s license to the officer.

If they suspect you have been drinking, the officer may ask you to take a field sobriety test. This is a series of simple balance and coordination tests. If you perform poorly on these, the officer will most likely arrest you for DUI.

The Express Consent law means that if you are pulled over, you must submit to a breath or blood test for alcohol levels. If you refuse to take the test, your license will automatically be suspended for one year, and this suspension cannot be challenged.

As a condition of obtaining a driver’s license in Colorado, you automatically consent to provide the state with a blood, saliva, or urine sample if you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI). In addition, it implies that you agree to enable the state to revoke your driver’s license unless you formally object within the first seven days following your arrest.


Drivers stopped in Colorado are given the choice of whether they would like to take a breath test or a blood test.
