Utah DUI Lawyer
With penalties such as a mandatory license suspension, fines, community service, and even imprisonment, a Utah driving under the influence (DUI) conviction can take a significant toll on your life and freedom. At Covey & Young, our attorneys are dedicated to the aggressive defense of Utah residents facing drunk-driving charges. Thanks to our proven strategies and advanced training, our law firm has helped a number of clients successfully resolve their case in an effort to avoid the serious repercussions associated with a conviction.
Fighting a DUI Charge
Many people believe that pleading guilty to a drunk-driving offense is the best option for their circumstances. Whether they believe that entering a guilty plea is cheaper or will garner them more leniency, this isn't always the case. They also fail to take into account that a DUI conviction will also show up on their permanent criminal record, which may be viewed by potential employers and others in the future.
Fortunately, getting your charges reduced, dismissed, or acquitted is possible with the right law firm on your side. When you hire an attorney who has experience with DUI cases, you can be assured that he or she will conduct an independent investigation into the facts of your initial traffic stop, arrest, and administration of the breathalyzer or blood tests. By learning more about the case than the prosecution, your attorney will have the upper hand--which ultimately benefits you in the end.
