What to Expect when Charged with a DUI

Anyone who refuses to take a blood alcohol content (BAC) test or has a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher will have his or her driver’s license automatically suspended unless a hearing is requested within 20 days of the arrest. To request a hearing, you must submit a fee along with your request as well as convince the hearing officer that your license should not be suspended. We recognize that you most likely do not have experience in these types of hearings—we do. In fact, we have years of experience representing clients at DUI administrative hearings, and we will work aggressively to obtain the best possible outcome for your unique situation.

Other penalties you may face if you are convicted of a DUI include:

  • Mandatory time in jail, ranging from one day up to one year in jail—even if this is your first offense
  • A hefty fine
  • Probation
  • Alcohol and drug counseling
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device on your automobile
  • Increased cost of automobile insurance

Additionally, depending on the specific facts of your case, your job could be in jeopardy, and custody or visitation with your children could be placed at risk if you are separated or divorced. Plus, if you have any prior DUI convictions, the consequences of a conviction are even greater.
