Criminal Defense and DUI
Criminal charges can carry very serious consequences. Along with maximum prison or jail sentences, a criminal conviction can also harm one's family, employment and overall quality of life.
However, potential jail time isn't all that is at risk. In criminal cases, the defendant also risks tarnishing their reputation as well as fines, probation, and even auto insurance repercussions. These long-term effects can be very harmful to your life and the lives of those around you.
If you are being investigated or charged with a crime, it is essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected. By consulting with an attorney early, clients better understand their options leading to a more prepared and effective defense.
It is not against the law to consume alcohol then operate a motor vehicle. It is only against the law to operate a car after you have lost the normal use of your mental or physical capabilities, or if you have a blood alcohol level at or above .08 at the time you were driving. A DUI conviction is a very serious matter that can lead to punishments such as jail or losing your driver's license, both of which are consequences that can haunt you your entire life. You’ll need an attorney who will fight for your rights to protect your future.
