It's critical for you to hire an experienced and qualified DUI attorney immediately, because there’s a tremendous amount at stake if your license is suspended or you are convicted of a DUI. There are consequences you may not have even considered, including, but not limited to:

  • A permanent criminal record (a DUI conviction can never be expunged off of a person’s criminal record)
  • Mandatory installation and monitoring of an ignition interlock device
  • License suspension
  • Loss of ability to operate a company vehicle (which oftentimes means loss of a job)
  • Inability to enter secure facilities such a airports or federal buildings
  • Losing your right to enter some foreign countries (including Canada)
  • Mandatory completion of extensive alcohol counseling
  • In some cases – actual jail time and/or home incarceration
