Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
Drinking and driving exposes you to criminal and administrative penalties. Ten days after the DUI arrest, your license will be suspended automatically. We can help you contest that suspension. Even if your license is suspended, your lawyer can help you take the proper steps to qualify for a hardship license. We will work with you to manage the administrative proceedings affecting your right to drive.
Conviction for a first offense DUI carries potential penalties of $500 in fines, up to nine months in prison and revocation of your license for one year. Most people do not receive the maximum penalty, but the importance of knowledgeable, aggressive defense cannot be underestimated. Those facing charges as repeat offenders face much harsher punishment, if convicted.
Facing charges is a stressful experience, but you do have options in defense. We will analyze all the evidence against you to ensure that your rights are protected. If you have questions, we will be there to give you the answers you deserve.
