On a first conviction, you are facing jail time, fines of up to $2700, 3 year probation, a mandatory drivers safety course, mandatory AA meetings and hospital and morgue tours. These penalties increase with second or third convictions and don’t include loss of work, quality of life, financial or DMV issues.
Yes, you should always take the first step of at least speaking to an attorney. There are many ways to fight your case and reduce your penalties, but only if you have the right attorney fighting for you. Don’t fall prey to “dui mills”, large firms who will process you or cut rate lawyers who can’t afford to concentrate on your case.
We charge a flat, reasonable fee based on details of your case. This will cover representation by your own personal DUI Attorney for your Criminal case and the DMV hearing, up to but not including trial. Should you go to trial, our trial rates are reasonable. We will spend the time to prepare and review all evidence, discovery and motions. We only win if you win.
There will be several court appearances and we will make them without your presence. We can make sure you only have to appear once, or even not at all, saving you time and anxiety and allowing you to return to your life.
Yes, but the defenses are highly technical and you need someone skilled in DMV procedures. IID devices are not mandatory for a DUI arrest only a conviction, and then only if you are convicted of Driving under the Influence, not for a “wet reckless”. Also you should know, getting an Ignition Interlock Device before you are convicted does not help your case, despite what the companies selling them may tell you.
