DUI charges can be given in Kentucky for either driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence of drugs or both. Alcohol and drug DUI charges carry the same penalties. Our strategy for defense is a bit different for the two charges. Having an attorney that understands the magnitude of your charges understands how to defend you is very important. Perhaps even more important is having an attorney who has been very successful in defending these charges. Don’t sign up for an expensive attorney who will plead you guilty. You have a right to defense!
Kentucky’s new DUI law raises the stakes even higher for those facing DUI charges in Kentucky. Under this new law, the “look-back period” was increased from five (5) years to ten (10) years. This means that if you are convicted of Driving Under the Influence, any other DUI within a ten year period will result in dramatically increased penalties. With your liberty on the line, we hold the Commonwealth to their burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt – and nothing less.

Prosecutors throughout the Commonwealth know when you walk in with an attorney from Cooley Iuliano Robey – they are in for a fight.
Driving Under the Influence cases have many legal intricacies. There are many statutory, regulatory and medical requirements which must be met before the prosecution can introduce your evidence against you. For instance, if the police officer does not inform you on two (2) separate occasions of your right to an independent blood test, then the evidence against you is inadmissible under KRS 189A.105(4). It is important details like these that win DUI cases. Hire a team of attorneys that understand these important details and are prepared to fully develop your defense.
Our firm handles are very large amount of Driving Under the Influence cases every year. For this reason, we have made the decision to forego our hourly rate and instead charge a “flat fee” for representation. Our clients enjoy the benefit of be able to pay one fee for total representation. We don’t believe anyone should ever have to choose whether or not to file a particular motion or challenge based on the amount of money it will cost. Our flat fee covers everything we do on your case up to a jury trial.
