Drunk driving charges follow dunked car

When you are navigating the roads at night, you are not always able to see with the ease you have during the day. Sometimes there are no streetlights, other times a car may not have its lights on, and sometimes people wear dark clothes and nothing reflective to catch your car's lights and alert you to their proximity. Even still, lights from other sources when directly in your line of vision can make it difficult for you to see and provide moments of uncertainty and panic.

What if I need to drive for work?

When you receive your first-ever driving under the influence charge in Florida, you are going to have a lot of questions. Some of the most intrinsic to carrying on your daily routine revolve around what will happen to your license. This is a major concern, as public transit and ride-sharing may only be tolerable for a short period of time before greater changes may become necessary in order to make your situation work.

When a DWI becomes aggravated

Alcohol-related driving charges are worrisome and carry negative outcomes that begin immediately. If you are convicted, things only get worse. You may see your criminal history cause hardship on your life in such ways as losing the potential to get a coveted job you have worked toward, not getting a credit application or home loan approved, not being approved to lease a property and seeing higher payments for insurance. But what happens when your alcohol-related charge is amplified? What if your charge of driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated becomes a charge of aggravated DUI or DWI?

Cleaning a record of criminal charges

Did you know it has been estimated that every year 1 in every 135 people will be arrested for driving under the influence? And without sealing or an expungement, your record could reflect this criminal conviction for three-quarters of a century. Few, if any, people are driving before their teenage years, so that essentially means that your record will reflect a mistake for the rest of your life.
