In California, driving under the influence, or DUI, is a crime. A DUI is a severe offense that can have a significant impact on your life, but it doesn't have to be the end. There are options for building a legal defense and defending your right to fair treatment in the legal process.
There is no doubt that you have concerns about your case if you are facing a DUI accusation. You can also be concerned about the legal process and its outcomes. A DUI is, after all, a serious criminal offense. That does not, however, negate your right to have your legal rights safeguarded.
If you were convicted of a DUI without a defense attorney on your side, you could be facing:
● Driver's license suspension
● Driver's license revocation for up to three years
● Penalties of up to $20,000
● A misdemeanor or felony on your record
● Possible jail time
These outcomes could be dangerous to you and your family. For example, having a criminal record can make it difficult to find work, return to school, or obtain affordable insurance.
We understand how severe even a first infraction may be at the Law Office of Paul C. Supple. It is something that, regardless of the outcome, affects your life. Fortunately, we have the expertise and resources necessary to successfully resolve your matter.
If you are stopped by the police, they will examine the circumstances and determine whether you are impaired by alcohol or drugs. If they have reasonable suspicion that you are driving under the influence, they will analyze your behavior, look, smell, and may administer field sobriety tests. You have the right to decline these tests, but if you do, you will most likely be arrested and booked for DUI right away. If this happens, the best thing you can do is contact a DUI defense lawyer right away.
Our DUI defense lawyer at The Law Office of Paul C. Supple knows how to safeguard your rights and obtain the best possible outcome. We've successfully lowered charges, negotiated a lesser sentence, and blocked evidence for hundreds of clients. You can have a positive verdict and even beat the charges if you have the right defense.
We love our clients, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
