We Work To Prevent A First Offense
A first charge of drinking while driving is usually charged as a misdemeanor DUI. Even a misdemeanor DUI carries severe penalties under Utah law, including license suspension for 120 days, a no-alcohol conditional license for one year subject to Utah’s “Not a Drop” policy, heavy fines, 48 hours of jail or community service, and ignition interlock for a year and a half.
If you are charged with a repeat DUI, the consequences are even more severe. It is important to do everything you can to avoid your first offense. We fight hard to protect our clients’ freedoms and rights, every step of the way from fighting the results of field sobriety, Breathalyzer and urine testing to driver’s license hearings.
