Have you, a family member or a loved one been charged with a DUI?
A DUI is a unique crime. It is unique in that it can happen to anyone at any time regardless of criminal history or personal characteristics.
A DUI is something that happens in many cases to people that are not likely criminals nor do they have criminal intentions or criminal propensity. Yet a DUI is a crime and the end result is that it will reflect on one’s criminal record.
Therefore, a DUI charge is no laughing matter, regardless of who you are. A DUI conviction can have a lasting impact on your life. It will negatively affect your criminal record, potentially limiting and affecting your employment or eligibility for future employment.
A DUI can affect your freedom, some drunk driving offenses can have severe penalties including jail time depending on the circumstances of the arrest and where the arrest occurred. A DUI will also have a heavy impact on your finances.
You will have fines to pay and most likely higher insurance rates if you are able to find someone to cover you after a DUI.
This is not counting your legal fees. Also, you risk the loss of your driving license. Many DUI convictions can result in the DMV suspending your license or in some cases revoking it.
Regardless of where you are at in life, a DUI conviction does not improve anyone’s situation. In 100% of the case, it is worth fighting your DUI charge in an effort to prevent a conviction or at the least to minimize the charge to something that will have a smaller effect on your life.
