What hiring a Los Angeles DUI Defense Attorney can help you avoid

The penalties for a DUI are designed to deter drivers from even a first offense and can wreak havoc on many aspects of your life. Some of the penalties a good DUI lawyer can help you avoid include:

  •  Criminal charges. These can range from a misdemeanor for your first offense to felony charges for a second or third infraction. A good DUI lawyer can help you avoid this black mark on your criminal record.
  • Jail time. A DUI conviction can come with jail time lasting anywhere up to a year for a first offense to seven years or more for a third conviction. A strong legal defense can help you minimize or avoid spending time behind bars.
  • Monetary fines. There are multiple costs associated with a DUI, including court fines between $380 - $10,000 or more, dependent on injuries and additional circumstances, plus increased insurance premiums and mandatory penalties from the DMV as part of California driver responsibility assessment.
  • Loss of license. A DUI conviction may include mandatory revocation of your driver’s license from three months to a year or more. The inability to drive can affect everything from your employment to daily tasks like running errands.

Navigating a DUI charge can be a difficult endeavor, but hiring a lawyer who is experienced and on your side will ensure that your best interests are represented throughout the process.
