Petersen Law Office

Omaha DUI Defense Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been arrested for an Omaha DUI or Sarpy County drunk driving offense, you need experienced help to get through the process and make sure all your rights are protected.

Getting the right information is the first step. This website will answer those questions. Then, you have to make a decision about how to handle your Nebraska DUI matter.

You can handle your case in one of three ways:

  1. Pro Se - This is when you handle the matter your self. You go to court alone and handle the entire matter yourself.
  2. Public Defender - This is where the State appoints a lawyer to handle your case. First, you go to Court alone and ask the Judge to appoint a lawyer for you because you cannot afford to pay for one yourself. If you qualify, the Court will appoint you a lawyer. They will work with you to handle the drunk driving case.
  3. Private Attorney - This is where you find an Omaha DUI attorney on your own, pay him or her to handle your case from the beginning to end.

Many people have heard recounts of other people's experiences, been told laws or rights and searched for information, all turning out to be incorrect. There's no reason to be misinformed.

I don't believe everyone charged with driving under the influence needs a private attorney. I'm happy to handle many DUI cases. However, after we meet and I asses your case, I will tell you if I can help you or not. If I can't improve your license or DUI situation, I won't take the case. In some cases, one can handle the matter alone and experience a good resolution to the matter. Other times, one needs an lawyer who will fight (and fight hard) for them.

I've created this website to inform, clear up any misinformation and give you answers. As a result, I obviously get requests from visitors to handle their Nebraska DUI case.

If you do decide to hire a private attorney, it's important that you obtain several opinions about your case. Just as you'd get a second opinion about a serious medical problem, you should get a second opinion about a serious legal problem.

As you explore my website, you'll get a strong sense for how I handle a case, why I choose to fight for people and what I can do for you. You'll notice a sense of caring missing from most professional relationships today. If you decide to use my office, your case will receive personal attention.

Right now, my goal is to give you information about Omaha and Sarpy County DUI cases and that your questions are answered. So, read through my website, make notes about new questions that arise and then make a decision about the best way for your case to be handled.

If you wish, I'm happy to speak with you and put your mind to rest.
