Our firm has represented a vast number of clients in a variety of misdemeanor charges and bankruptcy filings.
If you have been charged with a DUI, you have a lot to be concerned about, including license suspension, loss of license, and large fines and fees. Additional criminal penalties you may face include:
- Jail/prison time
- Community service
- Criminal record
- Expensive and time consuming substance abuse treatment
- Restrictive probationary license programs, including ignition interlock devices
In addition to the above, the social stigma and effect on your career can have lifelong negative consequences. Some might advise you that your only option is to plead guilty, but this is not true. Your best chance at limiting the negative consequences is to have an experienced attorney on your side.
Many respond to citations for traffic violations with the attitude that there is nothing to be done about it. Whether the violation is for speeding, running a red light or stop sign, driving with an expired, or other moving violations, it might seem that the easy thing to do is pay the fine and get on with your life.
However, these seemingly minor fees can have accumulating consequences. They can often result in higher insurance premiums, revoked license, arrest, imprisonment and other penalties. With the help of an attorney, you can lessen or eliminate the immediate consequences, and prevent further penalties and hardships down the road.
Whatever the charges against you, you need a qualified and dedicated legal team in your corner.
