The Consequences Of A Drunk Driving Conviction Are Serious

Many people do not realize that the consequences of DUI conviction, even for first-time offenders, could include automatic license suspension, heavy fines and possible jail time. The penalties only increase for repeat offenders or those charged with felony DUI or vehicular manslaughter if someone is killed as a result of drunk driving.

Furthermore, a DUI conviction can also have serious collateral consequences such as increased auto insurance premiums and limited employment opportunities due to the presence of a criminal record.

Providing Aggressive Defense From The Beginning

Our Lexington DUI defense attorney Adrian L. Falgione will take the appropriate steps to investigate all relevant factors which may result in a reduction in charges. This includes examining police reports, breath test results and other evidence to determine whether:

  • Police had probable cause to make the traffic stop
  • Clients were informed of their rights
  • Field sobriety tests were conducted properly
  • Breath tests were administered correctly and the machine was properly calibrated
  • Any pre-existing health conditions or medications that may have negatively affected field sobriety or breath test results

Our firm is always prepared to take matters to trial if necessary to protect our clients' rights. We can also seek pre-trial diversion or alcohol education programs that may be available for first-time offenders so as to minimize the consequences of conviction.
