There are many penalties that can happen as a result of a DUI conviction. Some are small but others can be very serious. One of the most common penalties is license suspension. Depending on your number of prior offenses, you may not be able to get it back. You may also be required to pay expensive fines or even serve jail time.
The DUI will go on your criminal record and when background checks are done for employment, it could hinder your chances of getting a new occupation. The court may require you to obtain high-risk SR-22 insurance which can be costly. In addition, the court may rule that need to have an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle for a year. An ignition interlock device is essentially a breathalyzer installed into your car.
In order to build a successful DUI defense, we examine all the evidence been put against you and evaluate it thoroughly. Sometimes the field sobriety tests are administered improperly or the officer wasn’t trained correctly. We need to find out if that was the case during your arrest so we can defend you accordingly.
Sometimes, there are certain medications that could have affected the test. They can cause the results to be wrong or affect the blood alcohol content. If we know what medications you were on during the time of your DUI, we can better understand if the test would have been impaired.
We will also advise you on how to respond to police interrogation as to not further incriminate yourself.
Being arrested for a DUI is stressful. Our DUI attorneys make sure that defending yourself against a DUI charge does not add to your anxiety. We need to investigate the steps listed above so that we can find out if there was any faulty evidence or a violation of your rights.
