Drunk Driving Is A Crime, Not A Violation
DUI/OVI is a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the details of the offense. It is not a traffic violation. If you plead guilty or are convicted, you will have a criminal record.
The penalties for a DUI conviction will vary based on the specifics of the charge, but may include:
- Driver’s license suspension
- Alcohol/drug abuse evaluation and education
- Fines and fees
- Jail time
- Ignition interlock device installation on your vehicles
We will examine the evidence in your case and determine whether police followed proper procedure. If they didn’t have probable cause to stop you, if they didn’t administer the breathalyzer test correctly or they otherwise violated your rights, we will work to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
