Getting pulled over for drinking and driving can lead to a messy, complex legal situation and serious consequences. At Pucci Pirtle, we understand the implications of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge, and we have the knowledge needed to defend your rights aggressively. When you put your trust in our attorneys, we make you our top priority. We take immediate action to mitigate your charges and will always work toward the most favorable outcome possible. In some situations, we may even be able to have your charges dropped.
Consequences of a DUI Conviction
While most drivers know that drinking and driving is a criminal offense, few recognize just how serious the consequences can be. Even for your first offense, you could lose driving privileges for up to a year. You could also be imprisoned for up to a year and may be forced to pay significant fines. Subsequent offenses carry even heavier penalties. For example, conviction of a second DUI can cause you to lose your license for up to five years, and a third offense could cause you to lose your license for a minimum of ten years.
Regardless of how many DUI convictions you have on your record, immediate and aggressive action is needed to protect your right to drive. Our criminal defense attorneys meet that need by putting our knowledge and experience to work for you. We carefully and diligently examine the details of your case, look for any discrepancies, and then leverage them in your defense. Do not settle for a conviction.
DUI Defense Lawyers Protecting Your Rights
Oftentimes, those facing DUI charges simply accept the conviction. This is a massive mistake. You have the legal right to an attorney, and the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, beyond a reasonable doubt. It is this doubt that we look for in your case. We search for signs of faulty breathalyzer test results, human error, improper procedure, and any other possible flaws. We then use them to work to your benefit. In some cases, this could be enough to have your charges dismissed altogether. In all others, we work aggressively to lessen the impact that a DUI charge will have on your life.
