Traffic Offenses / DUI

DUI and traffic-related offenses can have a long-standing impact on a person. Our firm has extensive experience representing people arrested or charged with drunk driving (DUI/DWI) and other traffic violations. We can provide you with the experienced representation you need in these cases.

Serious traffic offenses, such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Reckless Driving, Attempting to Elude, etc., have consequences that are felt long after you have been to court. In addition to the fines and costs one has to pay in these matters, a conviction for a serious traffic offense can impact you in other ways as well.

It is important to remember that the State of Alabama does not give a driver a “work permit” to allow you to drive to and from your job.

Even minor traffic offenses such as speeding can have a big impact on you. While many people believe that a speeding ticket is resolved with a fine and court costs, that is not the case. A speeding conviction can result in points being levied against your license. After you accumulate a number of points, your license can be suspended or revoked.

Here are just a few of the consequences you may face in the event of a traffic offense or DUI:

  • A conviction for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Reckless Driving, Attempting to Elude, etc. will likely result in your driver’s license being suspended or even revoked.
  • Many employers require a valid driver’s license as prerequisite for employment, so suspension or revocation of your license could cause you to lose your job or prevent your being hired for a new job.
  • Employment-related background checks will alert your potential or current employer to your driving history, which may carry consequences.
  • Insurance companies base your insurance premiums on your driving history. Any traffic-related conviction can result in a costly increase to your insurance premiums.

    It is important that you consult with an experienced attorney who handles these matters so you can understand fully the impact a traffic-related conviction can have on your life.
