Disputing a 90-day DUI

A lot of clients call me to say “I got a DUI last night.” They want to know about disputing a 90-day DUI in British Columbia. The first and most important thing that I tell them is that there is only a limited time to dispute a 90-day DUI and that is why it is important to act quickly.
