Why Do I Need a DUI Lawyer?

Being charged with a DUI or excess blood alcohol offence is concerning and frustrating for our clients. Arrest for these offences results in vehicle impoundment, licence suspension, and having to attend court as well as a police station to submit a fingerprint sample.

If convicted after trial, or if you pleaded guilty, these are some of the common consequences you will face:

  • $1,000.00 fine (for first offence), 30 days jail (for second offence), 120 days (for third offence)
  • Licence suspension of at least 1 year (for first offence)
  • The installation of the Ignition Interlock Device (at your own expense)
  • Being required to attend the Ministry of Transportation “Back on Track” assessment or the assessment and the Educational or Treatment Programs
  • Massive insurance increases
  • A criminal record (which may limit your employment prospects)
  • Your ability to travel internationally could be affected
  • Possible immigration-citizenship consequences

Our DUI lawyers have extensive experience successfully defending against all types of impaired driving related allegations. If you or someone you know has been charged with impaired operation, over 80, failure to provide a breath or blood sample, dangerous driving, criminal negligence causing death/bodily harm, flight from police or fail to remain you should contact a criminal lawyer immediately to help determine the best defence.
