Connecticut DUI Defense Attorneys

Defending against allegations of drunk driving in Connecticut

Many individuals do not consider driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs to be a serious crime. This is a mistake, however, as Connecticut laws set out extremely serious penalties for you if you are convicted of DUI. A DUI conviction can affect many aspects of your life, including your freedom, finances, and employment opportunities. In addition to being extremely embarrassing, DUI cases are more complicated than you probably think because you will face not only a court case but also an administrative case with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). These cases are also often time-sensitive; therefore, it is imperative that you contact a skilled DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible after an arrest on suspicion of DUI.

Former prosecutor Felice Duffy and defense attorney Paul Thomas understand how to skillfully handle all aspects of your DUI case, so call Duffy Law, LLC in New Haven at 203-946-2000 as soon as possible.

DUI convictions have serious penalties

Of course, the specific penalties for a DUI conviction will depend upon the circumstances of your case. The following are some examples of penalties you may face from both the court and the DMV:

Fines and court costs

The penalties can be greater due to many factors, including particularly high blood alcohol content (BAC), underage DUI, or causing accidents with property damage, injury, or death. In addition, the penalties substantially increase if you have previous DUI convictions on your criminal record. For example, for a second offense, you may be sentenced to up to two years in jail and face fines up to $4,000. For a third offense, you may face up to three years in jail and the permanent loss of your Connecticut driver’s license. For this reason, it is always best to avoid even one conviction whenever possible.

We can build an effective defense in your DUI case

Fortunately, with the assistance of a qualified criminal defense attorney, there are numerous ways to defend against DUI allegations in Connecticut. Some possible defenses may include:

These are only a few examples of possible legal defenses, and an attorney will identify the defenses available for you depending on the specific circumstances of your case. You will also be eligible for the Alcohol Education Program if you are a first-time offender.
