DUI Defense Attorneys Looking Out For You
A valid driver’s license is essential in Jackson and the surrounding community. Without it, getting to work or school and navigating other life necessities can prove nearly impossible. If you are convicted of DUI, in addition to hefty fines and jail time, you face a driver’s license suspension for up to 90 days if you are over the legal blood alcohol limit of .08, even if it is your first DUI. Further the court can require you to install a ignition interlock device on your vehicle.
If you have been charged with DUI, you should retain an attorney as soon as possible. Timing can have a big impact on the outcome of your case. If you refused a Breathalyzer test, you have even less time to contest the charge. Our attorneys will prepare your case to challenge the charges against you and help prevent the suspension or loss of your license.
