The collateral consequences associated with a DUI can be severe and often long term. The fact is, more people are in prison for a DUI than for any other crime. In most cases, the DUI stays on a person’s record for at least ten years. Plus, their driving privileges can be revoked by the DMV for a considerable length ot time. What often starts as an enjoyable night out with friends can turn into a life-altering event.
Many people assume that once they are pulled over and cited for a DUI, that they have no real legal legs to stand on. The fact is, there are often circumstances that mitigate the eventual outcome of the case.
Herbert Weston and Tanya Weston have years of experience in working with clients who have been charged with a DUI. In some instances, we are able to have charges dismissed due to legal improprieties by the arresting authorities. In most cases, where there is undeniable evidence of the client being over the legal limit, we work hard to negotiate a lesser punishment. By achieving a lesser punishment, we can also limit the subsequent penalty imposed by the DMV.
