The age group representing the highest percentage of DUI arrests is the 25-34 age group. The 18-24 age group and the 35-44 age group were

close in numbers, but are far behind the 25-34 group.

The best DUI lawyers in Denver must not only maintain on point legal knowledge and cutting edge trial skills, but the best lawyers also must remain informed about Criminal Justice statistics. Judges and sometimes even jurors can be influenced by statistical trends and news stories containing macro data about DUI cases.
