If you are facing a DUI charge, you are probably very concerned about all the possibilities that could occur. Will you lose your license? Will you go to jail? How much will the fine be? These questions are of vital concern to those who have been arrested and charged with intoxicated driving. The first vital step that can assist in reducing the damage is to get legal representation from an attorney as soon as possible after the arrest. If you do nothing and let the system take its course, it is almost certain that you will be convicted and will be subject to the penalties for the charge.
Depending upon the seriousness of the actual offense this could include jail time, fines, community service, and the suspension of your driver's license. In more serious offenses, such as when an accident involving injury occurred, you may be considered to be the responsible party due to the DUI. In these circumstances, it becomes even more important to get immediate legal representation.
