Being charged with a DUI is intense, and pleading guilty may seem like the best way out—especially if anticipated lawyers fees have you feeling hopeless. However, the cost of a reliable DUI defense lawyer like attorney Steven Taxman is nothing compared to the cost of a DUI conviction.

If you’ve found yourself in a tight spot facing an imminent DUI conviction, let attorney Steven Taxman protect you from the potential ramifications of a conviction. Below are a few of the services we offer our clients to safeguard their freedom and avoid an unnecessary conviction.

The cost of a DUI conviction

Before we get into exactly how Taxman DUI Defense can help you, it’s important to reiterate just how damaging a DUI conviction can be. A DUI should not be a life sentence, however, with the brutal ramifications of a DUI conviction, you could end up paying years down the line. DUI convictions can result in numerous harsh penalties, particularly for non-first-time offenders, including:

  • A criminal record
  • Suspension of driving privileges
  • Jail time
  • Steep fines and assessments
  • Mandatory participation in drug/alcohol treatment programs
  • Installation of vehicle ignition interlock devices
  • Lengthy, restrictive conditions
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Loss of employment
  • Probation

None of those include the emotional toll and time theft that coincides with a lengthy period of punishment. These punishments often infringe on your constitutional rights, and attorney Steven Taxman is prepared to fight on your behalf.

Innocent until proven guilty

A large part of any successful defense is the backing of a reliable and competent team of experts in their field. At Taxman DUI Defense, we understand how vital a vast network of relevant professionals can be to crafting a solid case.

Using DUI experience to scrutinize test results

There are a plethora of mistakes law enforcement officers make when administering an in-field breathalyzer or sobriety test, and even more during the actual arrest. In fact, you are never required to submit to an in-field breathalyzer test and are always entitled to speak to an attorney prior to doing so. Many arresting officers mince words and use purposely confusing language to get the results they want. At Taxman DUI Defense, we are trained to find the red flags in an improper arrest or faulty test result and will use that to come to your defense.
