The Impact Of A DUI Conviction
If you've been arrested for drunk driving in Tucson, you probably have countless questions, such as:
Will I lose my license?
Can I keep my job?
Will it always be on my record?
Is my insurance going to go up?
Being charged with DUI/DWI can be overwhelming due to the very serious consequences that result from a drunk driving conviction in Arizona — from fines to jail time and license suspensions. It's important to know your rights and have a comprehensive understanding of what's at stake. With over a decade of criminal defense experience and a thorough knowledge of Tucson metro area's courtroom proceedings, I am here to help you.
A DUI Conviction Is More Than Just A Traffic Ticket
A DUI conviction is expensive and it's serious. It can result in increased insurance rates, meaning you'll be paying more money every year just to drive. You will have to pay court fees and fines up to $10,000. You may also have to take an alcohol assessment course and get an ignition interlock device installed in your car, all of which cost you money.
A conviction will appear on your permanent criminal record. This means that potential employers would find this information in a basic background check. Even if it's your first DUI offense, it will show up as a criminal history.
