DUI – Driving Under the Influence
For people convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) charges the penalties can be severe and life-changing. Criminal and civil charges can often be weighed against a client and if convicted they may face large financial penalties, license revocation and even jail time. There can also be hefty court fees, increased insurance premiums, probation costs, alcohol treatment costs and even lost job opportunities as a result of a conviction. The fee for quality legal services can be small in comparison to the costs of a wrongful conviction.
It takes a very experienced attorney to properly defend someone charged with a DUI. The attorney must be well versed in criminal law, evidentiary law and constitutional law. They must also understand the science behind the blood alcohol testing procedures and knowledge about how law enforcement officials make DUI arrests.
