Ken did an excellent job handling my case. He goes above and beyond and handles all the details. Even when your case ends he continues to assist and answer questions.

I found myself in need of an attorney for representation against a DWI charge. This was a very frightening and traumatic time in my life and Ken helped me through it. From the first time I talked to him, he was very comforting and reassuring. He told me not to worry about the charge, to go live my life and leave the worrying to him. When I had questions, he would answer them personally and promptly. He has the expertise in this field of law that I needed. He has a take charge attitude that is positive but realistic. He and Park have an excellent working relationship with prosecutors and judges. The prosecutors know that the Gibson Law Firm is not afraid to go to court to get the outcome they want for their client. This in turn makes negotiations more successful. They are professionals who are at the top of their game. I never would have thought it possible, but they were able to negotiate a DISMISSAL of charges. I learned of Ken by reading online reviews. I want to recommend him to you if you are in need of this service. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family members should they ever discover themselves in this position. This was the best money I have ever spent. I am very thankful I found Ken.

Ken Gibson was absolutely amazing to work with. He has an incredibly professional team that will keep you informed of what to expect next and is truly there for your day or night! Definitely not your typical team as they are very responsive, personable, organized and incredibly knowledgable. They do not just feel like a lawyer you hired but truly someone there to help you and give solid legal advice. He was a wealth of knowledge about my legal situation and was able to swiftly and confidently determine a strategy that got my case dismissed in a matter of weeks. When you are looking for someone to represent you for DWI or DUI you want someone with experience who can creatively strategize the best defense for your situation. Ken was able to expunge a potentially life changing situation and I will recommend him to ANYONE who needs DWI or DUI legal services. It was pure luck that I ran across him when I needed his services so I am letting everyone know what a great lawyer he is if you have the chance to choose.
Tips & Advices
A DMV hearing is a person's chance to give his or her testimony regarding the arrest and provide any evidence. It's an administrative procedure, not a criminal hearing, so a person won't be declared innocent or guilty at this time. People can bring an attorney with them, but this hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the arrest.
Breathalyzers are commonly used and widely accepted, but have some faults. Alcohol-containing substances in the mouth, like mouthwash or stomach acid, could result in a falsely high reading. Some devices can malfunction, or may be incorrectly calibrated. Blood tests are the most accurate tests.
For a misdemeanor, a speedy trial should take 90 days, but most cases are resolved in three to six months. For a felony, a speedy trial should take 175 days, and most cases are resolved in five to seven months. In bigger cities or larger population areas, felonies might take several years to resolve.
A DUI will stay on someone's record for at least five years, and could be longer depending on which state the person lives in.
Different states define felonies differently. Some common ways a DUI can be elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony include:
  • If someone was injured.
  • If your BAC is elevated to a certain limit set by law. This limit is usually around .16.
  • If there are children in the vehicle.
  • If the driver has prior DUIs​.
  • If the driver's license is suspended, revoked or restricted.
