Driving under the influence (DUI)
An arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) can have serious consequences. A DUI is not simply a traffic offense; it may be punishable as a felony. Even a first offense can result in a substantial fine, imprisonment, and forfeiture of your license to operate a vehicle. A subsequent offense can produce an even stiffer sentence.
In addition to fines, imprisonment, and license suspension, you can also expect to pay significant court costs and administrative fees-- and risk being required to install a costly ignition interlock device at your own expense.
A DUI conviction will have additional consequences. You may lose your job or work opportunities.
It is virtually certain that you will see a substantial increase in your automobile insurance rates, assuming that your insurer is even willing to maintain your current policy. The immediate premium increase is likely to impact your insurance costs for the rest of your life.
When you are arrested for a DUI, it is crucial that you act immediately to protect your rights. I have been practicing law for more than twenty years, and have successfully handled countless DUI cases. You will find me to be compassionate, non-judgmental and, most importantly, available to you.
