There are several things that you have to consider when you are evaluating your options. Each of these points can impact your life, so be sure to think carefully. We can help you to find out what consequences and penalties you might face.

Court-imposed penalties

You might automatically start thinking about the court-imposed penalties, and rightfully so. These penalties are very serious and can take you away from your family. They can also ruin your finances. This is why you need to get started on your defense quickly because you don’t want to have to try to throw something together to present at your trial as you are walking into the courtroom. We can help you to learn about the options that you have to fight back against these charges.

Collateral consequences

The consequences of a drunk driving conviction don’t stop with the court-imposed penalties. Instead, you have to think about the collateral consequences. These include consequences like difficulty finding a job, social impacts and similar factors. These can last long after the court-imposed penalties have been completed. Thinking about these might help you to find the energy to work on your defense strategy in an effort to minimize the penalties and consequences you face.
