family law

DUI/OVI

A DUI conviction can have a devastating impact on your life. In addition to heavy fines and having your driver’s license suspended, you may also pay high-risk insurance rates for years into the future. If you have a commercial driver’s license or need to operate a motor vehicle as a part of your work, you may lose your job. Being arrested for driving under the influence can be a terrifying experience. Many people who have been arrested for these offenses are confused about their rights and scared about what the upcoming weeks may hold.
