The many losses that stem from a drunk driving conviction

On Behalf of | Mar 10, 2016 | DWI

Imagine that you’re driving home after having dinner with a friend when you see red flashing lights in your rear-view mirror. For anyone, being pulled over by a police officer is a nerve wracking experience. In cases where you may have had a glass of wine or beer with dinner, these feelings are likely to be magnified.

A drunk driving conviction can negatively impact an individual’s life in numerous, and often unforeseen, ways. In addition to costly fines and possible time spent behind bars, you may also lose your driver’s license and be forced to attend alcohol education or counseling classes. Additionally, the ripple-effect of a DWI often takes a hefty toll on personal and professional relationships.

Think about it. If your driver’s license was suspended or revoked, how would you get to work? How would you transport your child to soccer practice or to a friend’s house? What about grocery shopping? In truth, losing driving privileges due to a drunk driving conviction is often accompanied by many other losses including that of a job, the respect of family members and friends and even your own self respect.

If you or a family member is facing DWI charges, a lot is at stake and it’s important to reach out to an attorney for legal advice and help. For more than 30 years, attorney Luke Scardigno has defended the rights of individuals who are facing drunk driving charges.

Contrary to what many people believe, drunk driving cases are not open-and-shut cases and there are many factors that must be investigated and taken into account. Servicing clients in New York City and in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, Luke Scardigno will thoroughly investigate all evidence in a drunk driving case and fight to win a dismissal of or reduction in charges.
