Dealing with any DUI offense is frightening and a conviction can have severe repercussions. In a second, third, or fourth DUI charge, you are facing extreme changes in your life. A fourth DUI conviction is a felony and if convicted you will be a convicted felon. This can affect all aspects of your life and it can become difficult to get a job, a loan, or a place to live as you will be required to answer the question “have you been convicted of a felony” with a “yes” on any form you fill out. Potential employers can check your criminal record when you apply for a job and they could very likely pass you over as they may consider that you are potentially a risky employee. Never face a DUI charge without an experienced defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson to support you and find the options to defend you. The legal team will fight aggressively to defend you in court.
