A DUI/DWAI Conviction Can Damage Your Future
In addition to the fines and fees associated with a DUI/DWAI, your driver’s license may be suspended. Losing your driver’s license can mean losing your job and home. Auto insurance companies typically increase premiums or terminate coverage when they are notified of DUI convictions.
Because a DUI can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, it will show up on background checks. When future employers, schools, volunteer organizations or lenders run a background check, the DUI/DWAI conviction will appear on your record. If you have a professional license, your career could be in jeopardy as well.
We can also help you with traffic violations such as driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, and hit-and-run accidents. You can have a lawyer represent you at the driver’s license suspension hearing and fight to get your license back.
