DUI Job Loss Georgia
If you've been charged with DUI in Georgia, you may think criminal penalties are the only thing you have to worry about. However, given the number of civil consequences you are facing, you may need to reconsider that opinion. If you are found guilty of drunk driving, your conviction will remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life—jeopardizing countless opportunities in your future and often resulting in DUI job loss.
Although you may think you'll be able to keep your DUI conviction a secret from your employer, with all of the time you’ll need to take off from work in order to perform community service, attend counseling, and serve your jail sentence, it will be almost impossible to keep him or her from finding out about your situation. Unfortunately, even the most understanding employers can have little sympathy when it comes to employing a known criminal offender—especially if your job duties include driving or you travel frequently. As a result, you can expect to encounter problems in your current position.
If you are lucky enough to have a job that doesn't require a clean criminal history, it may still be difficult to obtain employment in the future. In some instances, you may even be ineligible for certain careers, including many in the educational industry and within the government sector. If you work in a position that requires a professional license—such as the real estate, medical, or legal field—your criminal record could even cause you to lose your license permanently.
Fortunately, there are a number of ways to avoid a criminal DUI conviction. With a strong defense strategy, you may be able to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed completely to avoid the long-term consequences of having a drunk driving charge on your criminal record.
At the Law Offices of Head, Thomas, Webb, and Willis, we believe there's a defense for almost every type of DUI out there. From proving that the officer who arrested you did not have sufficient reason to suspect you were driving under the influence to challenging the reliability of your chemical test results, we will review all of the evidence against you to determine the best course of action for your situation—and based on the number of charges we’ve gotten reduced or dismissed, we can drastically improve your chances of successfully resolving your case.
