We advocate for those accused of drunk driving

Previously, this blog discussed the consequences that could result when a minor is found guilty of drinking and driving. The penalties can be significant, including license suspension for a year or more for a first offense. Additionally, a minor may be required to pay a fine, engage in community service and face the consequences of having a criminal conviction on his or her record.

While juveniles can certainly be affected by allegations of drunk driving, adults face the potential for even harsher penalties. These individuals, if convicted, can face jail time, license suspension, license revocation, hefty fines, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device and damage to their personal and professional lives. In fact, a DUI conviction could cause an individual to lose his or her job and have difficulty securing future employment and housing, particularly if the offense was classified as a felony.

In short, there is a lot at stake when you are accused of drunk driving. Aggressive prosecutors will do everything they can to impose penalties on you, too. Although they may seek to negotiate a plea bargain, you should be hesitant to accept it until you know your legal rights, the strength of your case and the risks of proceeding to trial. At Rob McGuire Law, we ensure our clients recognize what they are up against and what the best possible outcome is given the circumstances. We advise our clients as to their legal options and, once they decide how to proceed, we vigorously defend them.

That's not to say that we don't enter into negotiations with prosecutors in hopes of obtaining lesser charges or less severe penalties, but we first analyze the prosecution's case to see if there are any weaknesses. After all, police officers make mistakes, and eyewitnesses can be unsure of what they saw. Thus, it is often wise to discuss your case with a qualified attorney before taking any action, as he or she will do everything in his or her power to ensure your best interests are protected.
