Cullman Alabama DUI Defense

Driving under the influence is a charge that some people tend to think of as minor, but a conviction for DUI can have significant repercussions on your future. Penalties for your first DUI are typically less severe than future convictions, but still can result in loss of your ability to drive a vehicle, fines, and even jail time. Further conviction for Driving Under the Influence will results in more harsh penalties and in Alabama cause the DUI to go from a Misdemeanor offense to a Felony. 

DUI does not only apply to alcohol, but other mind altering substances as well.

When dealing with a Driving Under the Influence charge hiring a skilled attorney can be crucial to finding evidentiary issues in the States case, negotiating with the prosecutor for a lesser traffic violation that doesn't cause your license to be suspended, or negotiating for the best plea bargain for your situation to avoid jail time or significant fines.
