In our last blog post, we covered the initial steps of a DUI arrest and what you can expect in those beginning moments. After a while, you will receive your sentencing and from there will have certain requirements that you have to cover before you’ve fully paid for your DUI. These are the components of a DUI that become stressful, costly and a little bit intimidating, which is where our team of DUI defense lawyers come in. Check out the next few steps and you’ll see why you should trust us with your DUI case.
Your License Is Suspended
This is something that happens for each and every DUI case, regardless of circumstances. The amount of time that your license is suspended for will however depend on the circumstances of your arrest and what your alcohol level was at when you were pulled over. Time frames of suspended licenses can vary anywhere from six months to multiple years.
Paying The Price
The time that’s spent driving while intoxicated winds up costing you more than a cab ever would have. You can expect to spend a couple of thousand dollars on court fees, DUI tickets, any additional classes that you may be required to take as well as any further costs that arise based on injury or damage.
Depending on the severity of your DUI arrest, you may be subject to serving time in jail, losing your license entirely or having a breathalyzer installed in your car. These types of punishments lead to more fines that need to be paid and longer periods of time where you’re unable to operate a vehicle.
These are the components that we work to minimize. As DUI defense lawyers, we do anything in our power to provide you with the security and support that you need to minimize the punishments that you get handed.
