DUI


A DUI can happen to anyone. However, even though DUI is a misdemeanor, a conviction can have lasting consequences for your life and driving privileges. You could be facing hefty fines, or even imprisonment if convicted of DUI. In addition, your auto insurance rates may dramatically increase, and you may have your license suspended or revoked. Lastly, having a conviction for DUI on your record may prevent you from obtaining certain types of employment, because it is viewed a substance abuse conviction.

You need an experienced attorney on your side to defend your DUI charge. You potentially could have your case reduced to a lesser charge or dismissed, after an attorney reviewes your case and the evidence against you. You also may elect to fight the case, and dispute the charges against you at trial. You also may be able to plead and have your record expunged so that future employers will not be able to see the conviction on your record.

If you have been charged with DUI, give us a call for a consultation at (404) 343-2441.
