A DUI conviction on a person’s record can negatively affect their opportunities for years to come. Too often, those arrested for driving under the influence assume that their case is not defend-able. These misconceptions have led countless people to plead guilty to a DUI offense for which there was very little evidence. Breathalyzers are historically testy devices that can provide false readings due to a variety of different reasons.
A skilled DUI defense attorney can help to alleviate the burdens of your criminal proceedings and present compelling arguments to help win your case. A DUI is no minor offense. It can have a tremendous impact in your life outside of court relating to unemployment, higher insurance premiums, loss of driving privileges and the excess expense of fines and fees.
