What To Expect If You’re Pulled Over For A DWI

If you’re pulled over in New Orleans for a DWI it can often be a traumatic experience so you may want to consult an attorney right afterwards.

Immediately you’re going to be arrested, you’re going to be sent to Orleans Parish prison or Jefferson Parish prison or whatever parish you had been pulled over. It could be a random traffic stop or it could be a, it could be random traffic stop or it could be a check point, either of which are legal.

You want to be friendly, you want to be courteous to the officer. Probably if you’ve been handcuffed you’re going to jail. Hopefully they’ll let you make a phone call on your cell phone or a payphone at the jail and then someone can set a bond for you.

One thing that’s important to remember is if your loved ones or you can call an attorney often the attorney can help you get released from jail without using a bondsmen. That will ultimately be a little bit more effective.

    "I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
