Have you been charged with drinking and driving? Being convicted of a driving under the influence offense despite having no prior criminal record will automatically result in a driving suspension of at least one year and a substantial fine. Devastating auto insurance costs in the future are also a certainty.

If you have been charged with a drinking and driving offense, the process can be confusing and frightening. With so much to lose, a drinking and driving lawyer will:

• Explain the law;
• Prepare a defense;
• Represent you in court.

A driving under the influence offense doesn’t have to be a life-ruining event. A drinking and driving lawyer is committed to finding ways to win your case.

Impaired driving – also known as "driving under the influence” (DUI) is a criminal offense. A DUI conviction can result in losing your driver’s license, substantially higher auto insurance premiums and a criminal record.
 
While it can definitely be a wake-up call, you should always do everything in your power to get a drinking and driving offense reduced to a lesser charge. Only an experienced drinking and driving lawyer can properly advise you about your chances of successfully fighting an impaired driving charge.
 

Consequences of a Conviction for Drinking and Driving

 
The fine resulting from a conviction for drinking and driving varies . For many people, the most significant penalty for driving under the influence is the loss of their driver’s license. Anyone found guilty of an impaired driving offense will be prohibited from operating a motor vehicle anywhere in Canada for at least one year.
 
Because drinking and driving is a criminal offense, a conviction also results in a criminal record. The conviction will remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life, unless you apply for a criminal record suspension and that takes at least five years before you are even eligible to apply.
 

Impact on Insurance

 

Drivers who drink and drive can also face substantially higher insurance premiums for several years. The insurance company considers them to be "high risk" and their insurance falls under Facility Rating. Facility Rated insurance premiums can range between $6,000 and $12,000 dollars per year, for up to five years. Insurance can also be refused for drivers with a drunk driving conviction.

 

A Drinking and Driving Lawyer Is the Best Defense

 

Being charged with impaired driving is a serious matter, and it is important to review your options with a lawyer specializing in criminal law.

 

A drinking and driving lawyer can help provide you with sound legal advice and a strong defense to help you keep your license and protect your freedom.
