First Time OUI/ DUI Offenses in Quincy
Hingham DUI Lawyer for First Time DUI Charges
Many people are cautious drinkers who exercise moderation. Sometimes it is these very people who end up with a DUI or OUI charge because they are not aware of exactly how alcohol affects their system. Heavier drinkers may have a better gauge of how much time it takes them to "sober up," but sometimes people who are not used to drinking cannot tell exactly when they become legally intoxicated. I understand that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Just because you are facing a DUI or OUI charge, it does not mean that you are a bad person. Do not let these charges define the rest of your life. Hire a knowledgeable attorney who can help you fight these charges. I have a history of
successfully defending my clients and I will work hard to protect your rights.
Are you a first time offender facing a DUI or OUI charge?
No one is perfect. Mistakes can be made. If you are facing a DUI or OUI charge for the first time, this could be a scary situation for you. But the good news is that if you have a clean record, the penalties you face if you are convicted of a DUI/OUI are much less severe than they are for repeat offenders. It's also important to remember that just because you have been charged with a DUI or OUI, it does not mean you will be convicted of that charge. You are innocent until proven guilty, and having a clean record certainly helps your image in court.
Of course, all penalties you could face if you are convicted of a DUI or OUI are quite serious. However, the consequences for first time offenders are much less severe than they are for people with DUI convictions on their records. If you are convicted of a DUI or OUI for the first time, you could be dealing with up to $500-$5,000 in fines, license suspension for 1 year, and up to 30 months in prison. However, if you hire an experienced attorney who can help you defend your case, there is a chance that all of your charges could be dropped or your penalties could be seriously reduced.
