Driving under the influence (DUI) is one of the most serious criminal charges that average people can find themselves facing. Making the mistake of driving after drinking too much can have very serious consequences. DUI charges are not taken lightly by prosecutors or the court.
Possible consequences of a DUI conviction include:
- Fines and fees totaling several thousand dollars
- Jail time
- Driver’s license suspension
- Enhanced DUI charges, including reckless homicide
- The consequences of a DUI are particularly harsh for health care professionals. Doctors, nurses, dentists and chiropractors facing a criminal conviction could lose their ability to prescribe medication, their license and their livelihood.
In order to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are able to obtain the best possible resolution to your case, you need to secure the representation of a skilled and experienced attorney who understands how to build a strong DUI defense.
