DUI is an enhancement crime, meaning penalties get more severe for subsequent DUI convictions. A person can be charged with a DUI for being under the influence of alcohol or drugs (illegal or prescription).

There are two aspects to an arrest for DUI. There is the criminal charge that takes place in the courts. Secondly, there is the revocation action taken by DMV to revoke your driver's license. This revocation can be challenged in an attempt to keep you from losing your driver's license. This office will represent you in the criminal action, as well as the DMV revocation action.

The goal in the criminal case is to keep a conviction off your record by pleading the case down to a reckless driving, or even less in some instances. Defendant a DUI is highly technical in nature and there are many different bases for pleading a DUI down other than a person's blood alcohol level. Therefore, a DUI can be kept off a person's record despite their blood alcohol being over the legal limit. That is why you need an experienced attorney to aggressively defend you if you have been charged with a DUI.

A person also must be concerned with the fact that DMV will likely attempt to revoke your license -- 90 days for a first offense and one year for a second offense. This action take by DMV is independent of the criminal action taking place in the courts. This office can get your driver's license reinstated after you receive notice of revocation by requesting an administrative hearing. We will represent you at the administrative hearing and attempt to keep you from having your license revoked.
