Having a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) on your record can have severe long-term consequences, including the loss of your driver's license, major fines, lost wages due to time spent in court as well as higher insurance premiums. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, such as BAC levels, whether there was an accident involved or a child in the car, or if you have a prior DUI conviction, the potential damages can be even more costly. An experienced St. Clair County DUI/DWI defense attorney can prove invaluable if you are concerned about keeping your driving record clean and minimizing the fallout from an arrest.
