DUI, Reckless Driving and License Suspension Defense
Your first DUI is a first-degree misdemeanor. If you plead guilty or are convicted, you may face penalties such as:
- $250 to $2,500 in fines
- Driver’s license suspension for one year
- A jail sentence
- Alcohol treatment
- Community service
We will investigate the charges against you and examine the results of Breathalyzer and/or blood tests. In addition, we will review the police procedure to determine whether your constitutional rights were violated.
Reckless driving is a class one misdemeanor. A conviction can mean penalties that include a fine of up to $2,500, up to one year in jail and the loss of your driver’s license. You may be charged with reckless driving for driving 20 miles per hour (mph) or more over the speed limit, or for driving more than 80 mph.
If you accumulate 12 demerit points in 12 months or 18 points in 24 months, your driver’s license can be suspended. We can represent you at the license suspension hearing to argue for the restoration of your driving privileges.
