Strong Defense Against DUI Charges
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious charge. On the one hand, DUI is the most common criminal charge. More than any other criminal charge, DUI seems to catch people from all walks of life and income levels. On the other hand, the charge is no less serious for being so common. Even for a first offense, you could lose your license, pay significant fines and even spend time incarcerated. If you are facing DUI charges, you need strong criminal defense from an experienced lawyer.
Fortunately, we know how to defend you against these charges. Our legal team, consisting of attorney Dominick W. Welch and our staff, has a wealth of experience handling all types of DUI charges in the Northern California DUI court system.
The Penalties For DUI
The potential for specific penalties you could face depends on a number of factors, but DUI charges put a number of things in your life in jeopardy. A conviction will threaten:
- Your freedom: There are few greater threats to freedom than spending time in jail. Depending on the circumstances, even a first conviction could result in your incarceration.
- Your future: A DUI conviction will greatly hinder your ability to obtain quality housing and employment. With a tarnished reputation in the community, your future quality of life is in jeopardy.
- Your driving privileges: Even a single charge of DUI can lead to a suspended or revoked license, regardless of whether you are convicted of the charges. You have only 10 days after your DUI arrest to secure your driving privileges, so it is critical to act fast to make sure you don’t lose your license.
Obviously, you do not want these things to happen to you. Our legal team knows how to fight against DUI charges.
