Protect Your Driving Privileges

Strict Penalties for DUI Require Zealous Advocacy

A DUI conviction - even for the first time - is likely to result in jail time, fines, and license suspension. If you blow over .08 in a breath test, you will face an automatic 90-day driver's license suspension by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of Connecticut. If you refused to take the breath test, you will automatically lose your license for six months. Convictions for second and third drunk driving offenses result in longer license suspensions, longer jail time or prison sentences, higher fines, and other harsher consequences. A DUI conviction may affect your ability to work and your eligibility for certain jobs, for specific housing, and for admittance to certain educational programs or schools.

With the potential of severe consequences, if you are convicted of DUI, it is in your very best interest to talk with a skilled, experienced DUI defense attorney. At the Law Office of Paul V. Carty, we have significant experience in defending people charged with DUI, and we are committed to treating our clients with the utmost courtesy and respect throughout the process.
