How serious are DUI charges?
Every charge should be considered serious, but certain offenses can result in more severe penalties. Even a first DUI charge in which the driver was barely over the 0.08% BAC limit, the driver can face severe penalties. These increase based on various circumstances and number of convictions.

What penalties might I face?
Penalties for a DUI conviction vary greatly depending on numerous factors involved in the arrest. For first time DUI offenses with no other factors, you may face a fine and driver’s license suspension, and maybe so many hours in jail. If your DUI is charged as a felony, you can face years in prison, driver’s license revocation, and costly fines. We can discuss your exact details and help you determine what you could be facing.

Are there any defenses that could be used in my case?
We will look at your specific case to determine a defense that suits you best. Whether we look at the procedure of the arresting officer, the calibration of a breathalyzer, or a lack of probable cause, we will work tenaciously to find the defense that challenges the evidence against you.
