Being arrested and charged with DUI has a significant impact on your life. Aside from the inconvenience of having to appear in Court and fight for your freedom, you may have to answer to your family or even employer. The results are often times less severe than originally thought, and a DUI charge does not necessarily mean drastic consequences.
An effective defense to a DUI case will include challenging the finding that you were actually driving while intoxicated, might require you to question the arrest process, and may even end in a term of probation with its own set of rules and requirements. The fight is worth it though, especially when you consider these top two reasons to fight a DUI:
- Maintaining your right to drive: a DUI is a two part case, the criminal case for DUI and the administrative proceeding regarding your driving rights. In most instances you can seek and be awarded a modified license, which means you still have some limited driving privileges.
- Keeping your record clean: a conviction on your record adds points to your driving record and is also a mark on your criminal history. Through artful negotiation you can achieve notation of a lesser charge on your record and avoid the harmful consequences of a DUI conviction.
