DUI / DWI Offenses

If you were pulled over for drunk driving in California, you probably have many concerns including, whether your license will likely be suspended, or, what types of criminal penalties you will face if you are convicted of DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). Both criminal and civil penalties for drunk driving can be harsh and often include:

  • Loss or suspension of license
  • Large fees/fines
  • Substance-abuse treatment
  • Jail or prison time
  • Community service
  • Restitution
  • Criminal record
  • Restrictive probationary license programs, including ignition interlock devices and Cinderella licenses

In addition, the social stigma and effect on your career may have lifelong negative consequences.
