David Ridings is a Nashville DUI Lawyer
24/7 Nashville DUI Attorney.
Have you been arrested for a DUI in Nashville?
Do you wish there was an attorney you could call on his cell phone over the weekend?
Tired of calling attorneys’ offices and waiting several days for a return phone call? Simply cannot wait until Monday?
Ridings says, “If you call my office, my staff has been instructed to freely give out my cell phone number and/or email address to anyone who asks. Therefore, you will be able to get the answers you need, when you need them.
Now, let’s just be honest… The police officer is not likely let you call me during the traffic stop. While that has happened in the past, it is usually because the officer knew me personally and allowed the arrestee an unusual privilege. But that is not the normal practice. Most often you will find yourself released from jail and wanting to ask questions about the recent arrest. It is imperative that you know certain things that should be done in the hours following your arrest. For example, if you forgot to ask for an independent blood test… It is imperative that you go get your own blood test as soon as you are released from jail. While that won’t help most of the time for “blood-alcohol content” issues, it will help for “drug-related” issues.
Speaking to an attorney soon after the arrest is also ‘settling’ in some ways. While the attorney can give you critical advice that you need to know in the hours following your arrest… Most often it is simply a good way to get “peace of mind” about decisions that you may have made during the traffic stop. It also helps to ‘convey the story’ to someone soon after the arrest so that you remember critical details. No matter whom you choose to represent you, it is important that you make notes soon after the arrest so that you are able to remember critical details about the stop, the subsequent search and/or field sobriety tests, as well as any potential search issues.
Call 615-851-1888 for a 24 hour/day answering service. And, again, the staff has been instructed to freely give out my cell phone number to anyone who asks. So don’t hesitate to use it. That is exactly why I give it out.”
