It’s no secret: drinking and driving when you are impaired beyond the legal limit is against the law.
The laws in every state are clear that operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol will have serious consequences.
Police officials, judges and politicians across the nation are making a concerted effort toward securing convictions for those accused of drunk driving, and as a result, those charged with drunk driving offenses have a hard time receiving a fair trial.

Drunk driving, commonly referred to as DUI (or even DWI and OUI), indicates that a person is unable to operate a vehicle as a result of substance abuse: alcohol, narcotics, prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication abuse can all impair an individual’s ability to operate a vehicle.
Laws against drunk driving vary by state and the consequences that follow a drunk driving incident are dependent on a number of factors. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case. Punishments and penalties of a drunk driving conviction include, but are not limited to:
- Jail time
- Loss of drivers license and insurance
- Vehicle impounded
- Court ordered rehab or driving school
- Hefty fines
