Lake County DUI Defense Lawyer

Charged with drunk driving?

When most people think about the consequences of a DUI conviction, fines and the loss of driving privileges come to mind. While these penalties are very serious, the true cost of a DUI conviction is much greater. When facing DUI charges, you simply cannot afford to leave your future in inexperienced hands.

Looking Beyond Incarceration and Fines

A DUI conviction will leave you with a permanent criminal record. This is significant for a number of reasons. First, a criminal record will limit various employment opportunities you may wish to pursue. Second, your housing options may become severely limited as some rental complexes will not lease to a convicted criminal. Third, your educational choices may be restricted as many academic institutions will not admit students with criminal records.

In addition, a DUI conviction almost always results in driver's license suspension or revocation. Without driving privileges, traveling to and from work, school, or even the store becomes incredibly difficult or impossible.

Perhaps most troublesome of all is the impact that a DUI conviction can have on your personal relationships. Marriages may become strained. Child custody and visitation arrangements may need to be altered. Long-term friendships may come to an end.
