Drunk driving charges are one type of charge that usually doesn't have a lot of wiggle room when it comes to the penalties that you face. This means that your defense needs to be on point. We can help you to explore the legal options that you have for a defense. While you might think that these are the same for all DUI cases, the strategies that you can employ for your defense will vary depending on the specific points in your case.
It is crucial that your defense strategy addresses the points that are being used against you. This means that we have to go through the prosecution's case that is going to be presented against you. This process shouldn't be rushed, so you should make sure that we get started on your case as soon as you know you are facing criminal charges for drinking and driving.
Even though you might be tempted to just put off working on your defense, you shouldn't. The risks are too great. Think about what a drunk driving conviction might mean for your employability. Your conviction could mean that you lose your driver's license, which means you can't get a job that requires a person to drive. It also means that the conviction would show up on a background check, which could impact your ability to get certain jobs.
Whether you are facing a first DUI charge or a subsequent charge, you should learn all you can about the charge against you. Knowing the penalties that you are facing might be enough to spur you to take action.
