Although a first-time DUI warrants lesser penalties than those given for multiple convictions, it is still a serious conviction with consequences that can damage your reputation and limit your opportunities.

We understand the damaging effects of a conviction and can offer aggressive representation to help you minimize your losses.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A DUI CASE
If you have received your first charge of driving under the influence, you can expect to face two different hearings: a DMV hearing and a court hearing. The DMV hearing involves reviewing the facts of your case, and is designed to determine whether or not your license will be suspended. A DMV license suspension is only reversible through an acquittal of your charges. Keep in mind that if you fail to schedule your hearing within the first few days after a DUI arrest, your license will be automatically suspended.
The court hearing takes place after the DMV hearing. This is where you will be able to defend your case and fight your charges. Depending on the strength of your defense, you can be acquitted, have your charges reduced, or be convicted as charged.
A first DUI conviction warrants the following consequences:
- A criminal record
- Fines and fees totaling approximately $1800
- Up to 6 months in jail
- Driver's license suspension
- Mandatory enrollment in a recovery program
In addition to these penalties, you may lose your job and the respect of others. With so much hanging in the balance, it is critical to attain the help of an experienced attorney. The Law Offices of Tyson R. Beers offers representation founded on years of experience. Our Lancaster criminal defense lawyer can help you keep your license in a DMV hearing and see your charges reduced or dismissed in court.
