One of the ways that employers weed out people is if you have felony convictions, if you have a misdemeanor conviction. Getting a DUI is serious and you really need representation to deal with it.
The first thing that we tell people is, never give the police a hard time. I understand that you might think that you didn’t do anything wrong, or you might think that whatever indication that the officer says you did wrong, you don’t believe that. You have rights. There’s no question about that. You do have rights, but the police also have a say, basically, into what’s going to happen to you down the road. It’s called discretion, and if you give the police a hard time, that’s one of the things that a judge might take into consideration when you’re in front of a judge later on.
