Possible Penalties for a Conviction

  • Mandatory installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

For a third or subsequent offense, penalties can increase dramatically. You can even face felony charges that will follow you for the rest of your life. You can lose your driving privileges, your reputation will be tarnished, and your relationships can be strained. Fight these charges with the help of our experienced criminal defense attorney.
