Don’t Let A Connecticut DUI Negatively Impact The Rest Of Your Life
Unlike a speeding ticket, an arrest for driving under the influence is a serious criminal charge. The details of your arrest and whether or not this is your first DUI can affect the severity of the charges you face.
At Justin C. Pugh & Associates in Westport, I focus on mitigating the negative effects that a Connecticut DUI can have on your license, on your record and on your future. If you’ve been arrested for suspicion of drunk driving or a breath test refusal, call me right away to find out how I can help: 203-658-6251. Your call and your consult with me are free. I help clients throughout Connecticut.
I Assist With Many DUI-Related Charges
It does not matter if this is your first offense or if you have multiple offenses, you will need strong advocacy to ensure that every measure available for your protection is undertaken. I have years of experience in these matters and can help with many types of charges and issues, including:
- First time DUI
- Second DUI
- Multiple DUI
- Aggravated DUI
- License suspension
- Commercial driver defense
- Ignition Interlock Device Program
- Treatment options
- Other criminal charges
There may be severe penalties if you are convicted of driving under the influence, including having a DUI on your criminal or driving history, loss of license, heavy fines, increased insurance premiums and jail time. Depending on the circumstances, you may also face a felony charge that can have serious, long-term ramifications that can affect your job, housing, ability to carry a firearm, eligibility to vote and even time with your children.
A DUI Does Not Have To Ruin Your Life
A DUI is a serious charge, but it does not have to ruin your life. When I take on your case, I take it because I believe I can offer a higher level of service and protection. I will work to mitigate the charge however possible. This may mean I get the charges dropped or reduced, or negotiate a deal. If the charges are dropped, there will be no record of the DUI on your record.
If you drive for a living, a DUI could mean the loss of your income. In every DUI case, but particularly in these cases, it is vitally important that you speak to me first, and let me do the talking to the police or anyone else after that. Why? Because it is all too easy to incriminate yourself. Once you do this, it is very difficult for me to stop any negative consequences from happening. Do yourself a favor and before you talk to anyone, call me.
The Outcome Of Your DUI Case Is Important
DUI charges are nothing to take lightly. I know from years of courtroom experience that too often people believe that if they just plead guilty and pay a fine, the whole thing will blow over and go away. This is rarely the case. Please call and find out how I can help you: 203-658-6251.
