DUI Charges Can Greatly Impact Your Life And Future
The impact of a drunk driving conviction could be catastrophic for your life. Even if you are facing charges for a first offense, driving under the influence (DUI) can have a lasting impact. In addition to fines and possible jail time, you could lose your driving privileges and have a serious negative mark on your record that could hinder your career and housing opportunities for the rest of your life.
It is critical to work with a lawyer who will fight these charges aggressively and minimize the damage. At The Law Office of Kia M. Wrice LLC, we are an experienced criminal defense team fighting against DUI charges for clients in Columbus and throughout central Ohio.
Fighting For You
After being pulled over for intoxicated driving, there are two aspects to your case: The criminal charges and your driver’s license revocation.
The criminal charges involve the traditional penalties that you might think of: jail time, fines, ignition interlock requirements and other penalties. In many DUI cases, the police make some type of critical error that can render the evidence inadmissible and result in having the case thrown out. If there is any possibility of this, we will find it.
Even when there are no police procedure errors, we have experience working within the system to find ways to mitigate the damage. For first offenses, there is usually more leeway for alternative sentencing and leniency from the court. But even in multiple offense cases, we can often find ways to lessen the sentence.
Driver’s License Revocation
It is critical to contact an attorney right away if you have been pulled over for drunk driving. Even if you are not convicted, you will need to fight for your driving privileges, which includes filing to avoid getting your license revoked in a very short time from your arrest. Talk with us. We can help you through this process to protect your driving privileges.
