Has your child been charged with a DUI?

Without proper legal representation, a young person can acquire a lifelong criminal record as a result of a terrible mistake in judgment. As you consider the next step to take, it’s important to think about the following:

  • If your child was arrested for DUI, it’s likely they have already spent time in jail, had their car impounded, been handcuffed and fingerprinted, and experienced a tremendous amount of embarrassment.
  • A DUI conviction can negatively impact a person for many years, especially financially.  Not only can insurance premiums cost more, but a criminal conviction can stop someone from getting a job, prevent admission to certain schools, and affect criteria associated with earning a professional license.
  • If your child fails to request an administrative license suspension hearing after their arrest, he or she may be unable to legally drive for a significant period of time.
