Exploring All Angles in Defense of Your Record & Future

gavel sits by law book that discusses actual physical control DUIYou can be arrested for a DUI even when not driving. The charge of actual physical control (APC) of a motor vehicle while intoxicated is essentially the same as driving under the influence (DUI) in Oklahoma, and the evidence does not even need to show that you were driving. For example, APC arrests have been made when the defendant was waiting in the car for someone else to drive or parked and sleeping.

Your success in earning an acquittal or negotiating manageable consequences will likely depend on your lawyer's commitment to exploring all angles and building the most compelling case for you.

As a former Cleveland County assistant district attorney, Drew Nichols has extensive experience on both sides of complex DUI cases. You can count on the Nichols Dixon team to engage with you, listen, and address all aspects of your APC or DUI case. This includes representation at the DPS hearing on revocation of your driver's license as well as in your criminal case.
