What many people do not realize if they have been charged with a DUI is that there are both criminal and civil implications that must be addressed. Not only is there the criminal charge itself which could mean fines, ignition interlock, probation and jail time but there is also the administrative side of the case. Once you are charged with a DUI, you must also go through an administrative process with the DMV that can result in the suspension of your driver’s license. With the help of an experienced DUI attorney, you may be able to keep your driving privilege and continue traveling the roads to support you and your family. But the complex issues of a DUI charge can be very confusing. That is why it is imperative that you hire an experienced DUI defense lawyer to handle all issues and aspects of your case. A member of the National College of DUI Defense, Attorney McGlinchey has the knowledge and experience in this complicated area to secure the best possible results for his clients.
