Have You Been Charged With DUI for the First Time?
At Bryant Law Office in Springfield, Illinois, we have 20 years of experience that we put to work defending people against first offense DUI charges.
Our lead attorney, John J. Bryant, is a former Assistant State's Attorney for Sangamon County. This means that we have a solid understanding of how the government prosecutes DUI/DWI arrests. We know what works for the government in these cases and we know what does not work. We know how to stand up for you.
Even a First Offense DUI Comes With Serious Penalties
The maximum penalty for a conviction of a DUI first offense is a year in jail, a fine of $2500, and a driver's license suspension lasting for a year. Of course, our lawyers will strive to prevent you from having to face these penalties and seek the best possible result.
We know that, in most cases, a first offender may be eligible for court supervision. If you are placed under court supervision, you may have to complete some courses but our goal is to see that you walk away with a clean record.
Defense Against Aggravated DUI Charges on the First Offense
In most cases, a first offense DUI is a misdemeanor. However, there are circumstances when a first offense DUI may be charged as a felony. If drunk driving caused a serious accident in which someone was hurt, the charge could be aggravated DUI, which is a felony.
Aggravated DUI is a very serious charge, but our lawyers are able to defend against it. We have the experience to handle even the most challenging DUI cases.
