  • Can I Resolve a DUI Charge Outside of The Court?

However, if you live out of town or out of state, our firm will seek to waive your appearance at all court dates until your physical presence at a court appearance is required. If you have been charged with misdemeanor DUI, you could settle the matter without personally appearing.
