Most individuals who are charged with driving under the influence of alcohol are really honest, hardworking citizens who accidentally make a one time mistake, or have an isolated lapse of judgement and decide to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming only a couple of drinks. Other people who are arrested for DUI are actually not driving under the influence at all, and are victims of police error or faulty equipment. If you are charged with a DUI, you need the experience of a professional, aggressive DUI lawyer who will advocate for your rights in a court of law.
Being convicted of a DUI can have serious penalties, including:
- Significant fines
- Loss or suspension of your driver’s license
- Installation of an ignition interlock device in your car
- Permanent criminal record
- Higher automobile insurance rates
- Being dropped by your auto insurance company
- Strike against driver’s license
If you are arrested for a DUI, you have certain rights. You don’t have to answer any questions, and you have the right to request counsel with your lawyer immediately. There are also ways to fight a DUI if you are charged with one.
