DUI or “Driving Under the Influence

dui dwi Lawyers

DUI or “Driving Under the Influence” can impact your life permanently, including your job, future and personal life. Each year, over a hundred thousand people are charged with a DUI offense as DUI / DWI laws become stiffer today due to efforts by groups and non-profit organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Bikers Against Drunk Drivers (BADD). The legal limit for blood alcohol c ontent (BAC) has also been reduced over the years from 0.10 to 0.08 as a standard, and is even lower in some states for commercial or under 21-year-old drivers. The worst thing is that drunk driving laws are so strict, first time offenders often face severe penalties, including mandatory jail time, forced placement of ignition-interlock devices, and thousands in legal fees. Give yourself a fighting chance to overcome these problems.
