The impact of a DUI on your life

Driving under the influence of alcohol is every bit as dangerous as it sounds. Along the same lines, you must understand the impact an arrest and conviction can have on your life.

There is no guaranteed way to avoid a DUI conviction, but there are definitely strategies you can use to tilt the scales of justice in your favor.

Remember this: There are may factors that can lead a law enforcement official to believe he or she has a reason to stop you for suspected DUI.

For example, inclement weather and dangerous roads may give the appearance that you are driving under the influence of alcohol. However, if you weren't, you shouldn't be charged with a crime, much less convicted.

At our law firm, we understand that a DUI arrest is not always cut and dry. It's easy to become scared after you are pulled over, assuming that the officer knows what he or she is doing. However, if you sit back and neglect to protect your legal rights, you could end up with a conviction on your record.

A DUI conviction is serious, as this can lead to a hefty fine and license suspension. Depending on the circumstances, there's always a chance it could land you in jail as well.

If you find yourself moving through the court system after a DUI arrest, it's important to understand your legal rights and the many steps you need to take to protect yourself. This isn't the simplest thing to do, but there are steps you can take to ease your tension and allow you to put this in the past once and for all.
