Boise Idaho Criminal Defense Attorneys - DUI Lawyers - (208) 472-2383 - Divorce and Family Law

What happens when you get a DUI in Idaho?  As a Boise Criminal Defense Lawyer I hear that question a lot.  The answer to the question is more substantial than describing the penalty.  You can find the basic penalty all over the web, my website included, but that is just the legal ramifications of a DUI.

Any Boise Criminal Attorney can tell you that a DUI conviction has far reaching consequences.  There is the embarrassment or hassle of the initial DUI stop, field sobriety test and booking.  Then you have the stress of having to let your family or loved ones know.  Then there is the stress of having to get out of jail and what that can mean financially.  Once you have found a Boise Criminal Defense Lawyer and have dealt with the cost of that, you have to decide if you want to fight the DUI or take a plea. 

It is possible to fight a DUI conviction and you may need to do that if it means losing your job if you are convicted.  There are many approaches to staying off a DUI conviction but it means you have to make a financial commitment to your Boise Criminal Attorney.  Criminal Defense Attorneys who are experienced in fighting DUI conviction can give you a good estimate of the cost of defending a DUI.  We can do this because we have successfully defended DUI charges and know, in the ball park, what it takes and what it costs and how much you will have to put in retainer.  Fighting a DUI will be another financial consequence that you will have to deal with.

If you choose to take a plea or you do not have the facts to sustain a fight against the DUI charge, you will have a series of hoops you will need to jump through as a result of your penalty.  These will include evaluations, community service, getting a restricted license, just to name a few.

As a Boise Criminal Attorney I have also seen the consequences of a DUI extend into people's personal lives.  Sometimes people loose their jobs, some people end up in divorce court, some people get subsequent DUI charges and the list goes on.

If you have been charged with a DUI in Idaho, you know that the consequences are serious and that's why it is critical to have an experienced Boise Criminal Defense Lawyer to help you.  Give us a call, (208) 472-2383 and see what we can do for you.
