The consequences for getting a DUI don't start at a courtroom but from the moment you are arrested. Once you have been charged with a DUI the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will revoke your driving privileges by issuing a license suspension. For a first offense the license suspension may last for up to four months. If you do not challenge the suspension by requesting an ALR hearing within ten days after your arrest your suspension will remain in effect until your case is tried in criminal court.

Aside from the penalties imposed by the DMV, you will also face criminal punishment. A first time DUI conviction can cause up to $1,000 in fines, a six month jail sentence and/or community service, as well as probation time, and a minimum four month license suspension. You might also be required to complete an alcohol awareness program and maintain SR22 insurance which is an extremely expensive auto insurance policy designed for high risk drivers.

At The Genesis Law Group, our DUI defense attorneys are dedicated to providing you with aggressive legal representation. With over many years of combined experience, you can be confident that we have the background and resources to get your DUI charge dropped.
