DUI Penalties Can Be Serious and Long-Lasting
The DUI attorneys have helped people of all economic backgrounds and walks of life who were facing DUI charges – doctors, construction workers, athletes, school teachers, college students, homemakers. No matter who gets pulled over, a DUI conviction can still result in life-altering consequences, including your ability to retain employment, receive student loans or keep your driver’s license. While DUIs are common, do not assume you can handle a charge on your own. You need an experienced DUI lawyer to address the charges and put you in the best position going forward.
There is no such thing as a simple or minor DUI charge. A DUI arrest automatically results in a suspended license, and you have fifteen days to request an administrative hearing to protect your driver’s license. A DUI conviction can cost you thousands of dollars in insurance coverage, prevent you from job opportunities, result in losing a driver’s license, even prevent you from traveling abroad. Do not assume a DUI attorney can effectively serve you without the extensive experience in the field.
Many people get behind the wheel completely unaware of the severe punishment for even a first offense of driving while intoxicated, driving while impaired or driving under the influence.
While DUI is most commonly associated with alcohol, it also encompasses being under the influence of any intoxicant, including marijuana, MDMA or prescription medication. If convicted, you can face anywhere from 10 days to a year in prison for a misdemeanor DUI offense. A felony DUI can result in five years in jail, and if you are changed with a 2nd or 3rd offense, you can face up to 10 years in jail. A death resulting from an accident in which you were charged with a DUI is Manslaughter One, which carries a punishment from 4 years to life in jail.
