Dedication And Hard Work For Clients Facing DUI Charges
Facing a DUI charge is a frightening experience, whether it is the first time you are pulled over or the second or third time you are facing charges for a DUI. At Hummel, Lewis & Smith, LLP, our attorneys understand that anyone can make a mistake. Too often, really bad things happen to great people, including young adults or teenagers who may not understand the serious, life-altering consequences imposed as a result of drinking and driving.
The penalties for a DUI include probation, large fines, safety school and programs, or rehab for alcohol and drug use. You can eventually lose your right to drive, have restricted driving privileges through the Ignition Interlock program, or spend time in prison.
We Believe Everyone Deserves A Second Chance
We aim to help each client get the best results for their case and their future. Sometimes, a diversion program can help mitigate your sentence and stop a problem before it becomes an addiction to drugs or alcohol. If a rehabilitation program is the right option for you or a loved one, we have the resources to help.
Many times, we can help first-time offenders of a certain alcohol- or drug-related crime earn acceptance into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. This program takes the place of jail time and other penalties. Once you complete the program, your drunk driving charges can be erased from your record.
Students Do Not Deserve To Lose Their Future
Along with rehabilitation and diversionary programs, there are alternatives for young adults and teenagers. In some cases, our lawyers can obtain a dismissal of underage drinking charges through the Youthful Offenders Program.
We represent minors and college students facing any alcohol-related charge, including underage drinking, DUI and possession of a fake ID.
