DUIs or Aggravated DUIs
The DUI process is complex, and a conviction for a DUI or aggravated DUI can have a major and significant effect on your life. Penalties for a serious DUI conviction can be considerable, including loss of full driving privileges, costly fines and penalty fees up to $25,000, probation, significant increases in insurance costs, and possible jail time.
Additionally, if you’re a DUI first-timer who has had your driver’s license revoked due to a summary suspension your driving privileges can be subject to a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP). The MDDP allows you to drive during the summary suspension; however, you will be required to install a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) in all vehicles titled in your name. Driving privileges under the MDDP are available on the 31st day of your summary suspension. The costs of a BAIID are pretty high, so it is critical to challenge the summary suspension by filing a petition to rescind the summary suspension as soon as possible. An experienced and dedicated attorney may be able to win your summary suspension hearing.
