The laws of the State of Hawaii establish that it is a crime to operate a motor vehicle while impaired. This includes both a traditional DUI prohibition which is based on mere observations of the law enforcement officer. It also includes a per se DUI prohibition which prohibits driving with a certain amount of alcohol in your system. The legal threshold is 0.08% blood alcohol content. The offense of drunk driving in Hawaii is called operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant or OVUII.

Note that BAC is just one factor during an investigation into OVUII/DUI in Hawaii. If a law enforcement officer perceives a motorist cannot safely operate a vehicle due to impairment from alcohol, prescription medication or illegal drugs, an arrest for OVUII/DUI can be initiated. It is also possible to be arrested for Boating While Intoxicated, also known as BWI, which has similar penalties to DWI.
The Honolulu Hawaii DUI Lawyer Richard L. Holcomb at Holcomb Law has significant experience defending those accused of driving under the influence in Hawaii. The goal of Holcomb Law is to eliminate the penalties associated with an arrest for impaired or drunk driving and to have your case dismissed. The law firm will use its knowledge of Hawaii DUI laws, special training and expertise in the courtroom to challenge the state’s case.
How much will it cost me to hire a DUI Attorney?
Be wary of lawyers that charge unusually low fees. The old adage “you get what you pay for” is not always true, but we believe that it applies to DUI representation. Currently, many attorneys are taking cases for a fraction of what experienced leading DUI lawyers charge. Many of these attorneys routinely advise their clients to plead guilty despite a multitude of issues that could lead to a better result. You should always investigate your potential lawyer’s experience, trial history, and reputation. Important considerations are: how many DUI cases is the lawyer taking per month? What motions will the attorney be filing on your behalf? What will the attorney do to prepare your case?
What legal issues do they intend to preserve in the event that you do get convicted? Will they be questioning officers at the ADLRO to discover information that may help you at trial? The quality of your attorney will likely directly impact the results of your case how prosecutors and judges respond to your case.
Cost is always a consideration in hiring an attorney. Red Adair is famously quoted as saying “If you think it is expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.” One of the most difficult questions you will have at the beginning of fighting your DUI case is determining what you should pay for a quality DUI lawyer to represent you. The following ranges are general examples of the costs through trial of different lawyers in Hawaii for a first offense DUI without complicating factors:

How we will defend you in your Honolulu DUI Case
Holcomb Law will challenge each facet of the allegations against you. Incorporating a strong motions practice, Mr. Holcomb will challenge the basis for having stopped you in the first place, whether there was probable cause for a traffic stop and the arrest, aggressively seek information from the government designed to check to see if the breath or blood testing equipment was in proper working order, aggressively challenge the admissibility of the breath or blood test result, review the arrest report for errors in police policy, study any video evidence for problems with the administration of field sobriety tests, and determine if a chemical test for BAC was given in compliance with state regulations. Raising these issues not only help you in the trial court, but also in the event that you are convicted, the issues are preserved for a meaningful chance at appeal.

The penalties associated with an arrest for DUI in Honolulu can include a fine, a jail sentence, revocation of driver’s license, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock, and a mandatory alcohol class. There is also a mandatory drug/alcohol addiction assessment that you must complete if convicted or if your license is revoked at the ADLRO.
Further, you will have to complete any treatment recommendations that the person who administers the assessment may require. One of the biggest consequences is that, absent extraordinary circumstances, the criminal conviction will remain on your record forever. This could have catastrophic consequences for your current job, future employment, security clearances, professional or special licensing such as CDL or airport ramp licensing, or background checks. Also, your entry into some countries, such as Canada, may be restricted or prohibited. A drunk driving arrest could impact the rest of your life.
