Fighting To Protect The Rights Of The Accused
The consequences of a DUI conviction are serious. Even if this is your first offense, you could have your driver’s license or professional license suspended, be forced to pay expensive fines, or even spend time in jail. In addition, a conviction will go on your permanent record and could impact your ability to obtain certain jobs or housing in the future.
When you are charged with a DUI, your choice of lawyer can make a dramatic difference. At Derryberry & Naifeh, LLP, we will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case, challenge the prosecution’s evidence, explore alternatives to traditional penalties, and fight to protect your rights and your future.

Helping Clients Protect Their Driver’s Licenses
In Oklahoma, it only takes a DUI charge — not a conviction — for the state to immediately suspend your driver’s license. If you wish to contest the suspension of your license, you must schedule a court hearing with the Department of Public Safety within 15 days of your arrest.
A driver’s license suspension hearing is an administrative matter that is separate from a criminal DUI charge. It is crucial that you have an experienced attorney on your side. The lawyers of Derryberry & Naifeh, LLP, can represent you in both your criminal DUI case and the associated administrative driver’s license suspension case. We have considerable experience and a record of achievement in this area.
Helping Individuals Maintain Their Professional Licenses

Our attorneys help doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, nurses, architects, pharmacists and other professionals fight to protect their professional licenses when facing suspension, revocation or other forms of discipline from professional boards and other state agencies. Our goal is to obtain the best possible outcome in your case and to get you back to your normal life as quickly and painlessly as possible.
