Being charged with a DUI can wreak havoc on your personal, professional as well as your financial life.
An arrest for a DUI has both criminal and civil penalties. Under the criminal penalties, it is a Class A Misdemeanor and you could face up to 1 year in jail and up to $2500.00 fine. Under the Civil penalties, you could lose your driving privileges and could be suspended from 6 months to a 1 year.
If you are charged with a 2nd 3rd 4th, DUI, the criminal and civil penalties become harsher. Prison, jail probation and work release are sentencing options if you are charged with or upgraded to a felony DUI.

Paying your tickets could lead to a conviction on your driving record and result in suspended driving privileges, as well as higher insurance premiums. Not all traffic offenses are the same, but they all have consequences on your driving privileges. A conviction in some traffic offenses will result in immediate suspension of your license. Although many traffic tickets are petty offenses, there are misdemeanor and felony driving offenses as well, where an attorney will be necessary to represent you.
