Navigate Your DUI Charges With The Help Of A Former Prosecutor
A DUI conviction can impact your life for years to come. Not only can it result in the loss of your license, but having a criminal history is certain to limit your housing options and employment opportunities as well. However, there is hope.
As a former prosecutor for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, Erin Richards-Wilhelm of Richards Law Office, P.C., knows how the opposition works. So does attorney Colin Wilhelm. For this reason, if you face charges of driving while impaired, trust your case to an attorney with the knowledge and experience to fight for you.
Penalties You Can Expect If Convicted
Due to Colorado’s strict DUI penalties for violators of all ages, police in Glenwood Springs are tough on drunk and impaired drivers.
If convicted of a DUI, you face:
- Potential jail time, even if it is only your first offense
- Fines between $600-$500,000 or more, depending on the level of the offense
- The suspension of your driving privileges
- The revocation of your license entirely
- Community service
- Court-mandated education classes
- Other penalties imposed by the court
But whether you submitted to a field sobriety test that led to your charges, or your refusal resulted in an automatic suspension of your license, our firm can help. Let us develop a strategy that can potentially minimize the threat to your driving privileges and your freedom today.
Charged With Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs?
Driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs can carry similar penalties to drunk driving. And although the consumption of drugs can be more difficult to prove in court, having a strong advocate on your side is key.
Regardless of the specifics of your DUI charges, it is crucial that you reach out to the firm before your troubles can escalate further. Call 970-456-1898 or send us an email to schedule a consultation with the team today.
