Fresno Drunk Driving Defense a Critical Matter for Local Professionals
Jun 14, 2017
If you are a professional, hold a license or work in finance, healthcare or other popular industries, a DUI could have an impact on your life that extends far beyond an arrest or a fine. If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is essential that you contact our office right away. A delay could result in disastrous consequences on your life and ability to work.
3 Ways a DUI Conviction Could Derail your Career
License Suspension: If you drive to work and lose your license, you could have difficulty getting to the office on time -- or at all. Losing your license means you'll have to rely on family, friends or public transportation to get around and could impact your ability to perform your job at all. For those who travel as part of their job, whether they visit different locations or call on customers, the ability to legally drive is a must.
Fines and Possible Jail Time: You'll face fines and jail time after a conviction; the resulting embarrassment could make it difficult for you to cope at work. It can also make it more difficult for you to get promoted or to move ahead in your career.
Career disruption: If the lack of a driver’s license and the embarrassment of getting a DUI aren’t enough, a conviction could be enough to derail your career entirely. Some professional licenses are revocable for drug and alcohol related offenses; a conviction can also prevent you from being awarded a professional license in the first place.
The repercussions of a DUI can be felt long after the initial charges and a prompt and aggressive defense is needed to protect your career and future earning potential. If you have been charged with a DUI, don’t delay, contact us right away to get the representation you need to protect your career and livelihood.
