Aggressive DUI Defense

Drunk driving is not something you plan on doing. After having a couple of drinks with friends after work, you start to drive home when a police officer pulls you over because he suspects that you are under the influence. You are shocked to find out that your blood alcohol level is over the legal limit, and you get charged with a DUI/DWI.

Dedicated Legal Counsel

At Jones, Hawkins, & Associates, in Montgomery, we know that you are afraid of losing driving privileges, employment and your reputation over a misdemeanor or felony DUI charge. We are skilled legal professionals driven to pursue any avenue possible in your defense. Helping you maneuver through the often complex landscape of criminal law is a significant part of our practice.

First-Time Offenders

Even though first-time DUI offenders are often granted a lighter sentence than repeat offenders, you want to minimize the penalties as much as possible. First time DUI penalties can include:

  • A 90-day suspension of driving privileges
  • A monetary fine
  • Jail time of up to a year
  • Ignition interlock device on vehicle

It can be possible to qualify for a court referral program. Representation by an attorney is essential to pursue the options of the lightest sentence possible.

Minor Difficulties

If you are under the age of 21 and are pulled over because a police officer suspects a DUI, you will be subject to Alabama's zero tolerance limit of .02 percent blood alcohol level. Expect penalties such as:

  • Suspension of your license
  • A fine
  • Required educational and counseling programs
  • Jail time
