Anyone arrested for driving under the influence needs the help of a DUI lawyer to minimize negative repercussions. An attorney with the Law Offices of Lawrence J. Signore will work to protect your rights and minimize the negative consequences of the charges.
If you are convicted of driving under the influence, the ramifications are extensive. You may have your car impounded, license suspended, fines imposed, and insurance rates raised. The consequences are even harsher if accidents or injuries occurred, potentially involving criminal charges. To attempt to lessen these consequences, you should contact a DUI attorney right away—as soon as the police officers that pulled you over begin asking questions.
An attorney can help you through every step of the legal process, from guiding you through police questioning to defending you in court. DUI lawyers have experience meeting legal deadlines, negotiating with prosecutors, and reducing sentences, all of which increase your chances of receiving lesser charges or perhaps avoiding a conviction altogether. Even if you have already been convicted, an attorney may be able to help expunge the DUI from your record, preventing it from affecting future credit scores and employment opportunities.
A DUI charge or conviction carries serious consequences that can permanently impact your life. The Law Offices of Lawrence J. Signore provides strong legal representation to help you navigate the legal system. If you have been arrested or convicted of a DUI, call 401-273-3000 or complete our online contact form today.
