First DUI Conviction
When you are charged with a DUI for the first time, it can be a frightening experience. We’re all familiar with ravaging effects of a DUI, but many people think it won’t happen to them or may make a mistake without thinking at all. However, when you have an attorney on your side, you will find getting through the process is easier and less stressful. With the right representation, we may be able to help you get your charges reduced or even dropped altogether. This depends greatly on the details of your case, but a consultation with one of our DUI lawyers can help you determine the best course of action for your defense.
The Potential Consequences
A first DUI comes with specific consequences. While you may not receive all of them, most people who are charged with a DUI will end up facing at least some of them. You could end up receiving up to five years on probation, an ignition locking device, up to six months of alcohol classes, up to six months in jail, fines up to $1,500 and/or a license suspension between six months and three years. These penalties are up to your judge and may be reduced or eliminated with the help of an experienced lawyer. Read more
