How could a DUI offense negatively affect your life?

  • If convicted, you may need to purchase SR-22 (high-risk) insurance, and if you don't, your license could be suspended.
  • It can harm your employment if driving is required.
  • You may not be able to rent a car.
  • A DUI conviction will stay on your criminal record for life.
  • A DUI conviction will stay on your driving record for five years.
  • Any additional DUI convictions will increase the severity of the penalties you receive.

Protection Against a DUI Conviction

Whether this is your first, second or third offense, or even a felony DUI offense, our office has the experience, knowledge, and resources to help protect your rights and work towards a favorable outcome for your situation. The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level for a driver over the age of 21 is 0.08%. There are also implied consent laws, which state that every licensed driver automatically consents to chemical testing to determine BAC levels. Refusing a test can lead to a driver's license suspension.

We encourage people to write down everything they can remember about their arrest because details are critical to a good defense. Did the officer pull you over for good reason? Did he conduct a field sobriety test? How long had it been since your last drink? These are some questions that can help build your case to defend your freedom against the prosecution in court.
