Strategic DUI/DWI Defense
The state of Louisiana takes driving while intoxicated (DWI) seriously and has imposed strict penalties for DWI convictions. Consequences can range and include the loss of your license, fines, probation and even possible time behind bars. You can also lose your vehicle through impoundment or forfeiture. When you can drive again, you could also end up needing to have an ignition interlock device installed on your car, meaning you are going to need to breathe into a machine in order to start your vehicle. With such steep consequences, know that if you have been charged with DWI, Bruno & Bruno is here to help you.
In addition to the legal consequences, there are practical issues that often come from a DWI arrest or conviction. A DWI is a crime and a conviction will show up on your permanent record, which could lead to you losing your current job or being denied future employment opportunities. Especially if the job is with the state or law enforcement, or involves driving in any way, you may not keep or get the job.
Are You A Commercial Truck Driver?
Commercial truck drivers are also in a unique spot when it comes to DWIs. Not only could you end up losing your license for a year, but you may also have limitations on driving outside of the state or abroad. When you do start driving again, your monthly insurance rates are also most likely going to be very high. Add to this the possibility of mandatory community service and substance abuse treatment and you can quickly see how high the cost of a DWI really is.
