Just One Mistake Can Carry Multiple Consequences

After you have been charged with DUI for the first time, you will be up against very strict laws.

Penalties associated with first-time DUI offenses include:

  • Three years of probation
  • Fines and court fees – totaling $2000
  • Between 2 and 180 days in custody or jail
  • 3 or 9 months of correctional driving classes
  • 2- hour DUI Victim Impact Panel from MADD

In addition to the criminal penalties for your first DUI offense, administrative penalties will also be assigned. For six months, your license will be suspended if you failed a chemical test (with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08% or higher) or refused to submit to the test. With a strong defense presented by our team of attorneys, the potential for a restricted license may be available after 30 days. This would allow you to drive to necessary locations, such as your work, the hospital, or grocery stores.

In some cases, you may be eligible for a work release program as a replacement to jail time. Not only will you get a sense of freedom that a regular sentence does not allow, but you will also be able to maintain your financial stability by continuing to work.
