DUI Convictions Can Cost You A Great Deal

It's easy to find yourself facing a DUI charge. A few drinks at a restaurant here in Lynchburg or at a friend's home and without thinking, you may be facing a state trooper or police officer asking you to perform some field sobriety tests.

You may think it is not worth the hassle of fighting the charges. But the long-term costs of a DUI conviction in Virginia can be very great, and with a conviction on your permanent criminal record, you may face even greater consequences for a second DUI conviction or other criminal charges. P. Scott De Bruin provides aggressive DUI representation, working to undercut the prosecutor's case and have the charges dismissed or reduced.

We Work To Protect Your Future

The long-term consequences of a DUI conviction are many. You will likely lose your license for a year, your insurance premiums will increase and if you are permitted to drive with a restricted license, you will need to use ignition interlock device, which you must have installed on any vehicle you drive. In addition, you have to pay for the installation, maintenance and monitoring of this device.

If your work depends on your maintaining a commercial driver's license (CDL), a DUI will cost you your job. A second conviction is even more costly, from spending 10 days in jail to a three-year loss of driving privileges. A third conviction is a felony DUI and could mean five years in prison and a lifetime loss of your license.
