Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases have multiple components that can seem overwhelming without effective representation. Many drivers face a vehicle impound and potential driver’s license suspension in addition to criminal charges. A conviction for DUI carries potential mandatory minimum jail sentences, electronic home detention, driver’s license suspensions, requirements to have a car equipped with an ignition interlock device, mandatory minimum fines, and probation. Choosing the wrong attorney can potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars. Our attorneys and staff at LOMBINO ∙ MARTINO have successfully represented hundreds of clients in their DUI cases, including driver’s license suspensions through the Department of Licensing (DOL) as well as all charges brought in criminal court.

There are several components, or elements, to the offense of Driving Under the Influence. To be convicted of this offense, the Prosecuting Attorney must prove each element beyond a reasonable doubt. Our attorneys at LOMBINO ∙ MARTINO aggressively challenge the Prosecuting Attorney's case, not only to expose those instances when the arresting officer improperly arrested or improperly administered the breath test but also to establish evidence of your innocence.

A conviction for DUI can carry a maximum penalty of up to 364 days in jail. The court is required to impose mandatory minimum jail time if you are convicted. The mandatory minimum jail time varies depending on whether you provided a breath test, the breath test reading, and the number of prior convictions you may have. Mandatory minimum jail time can range from one (1) day in jail up to 120 days in jail. If convicted, the court may also be required to sentence you to mandatory electronic home monitoring (EHM). The EHM requirements can vary between zero and 150 days on top of potential jail time.

In addition, the Department of Licensing and the court may suspend or revoke your license for a period of 90 days up to four years. As with mandatory jail time, these suspensions may vary based on prior DUI convictions, breath test readings or the refusal to provide a breath test.

We will ensure that all of your legal rights are protected. The stakes are high. Your employment, your financial security and your liberty are all on the line. You deserve a lawyer in your corner who will aggressively represent your best interests every step of the way.

“My husband and I were referred to your firm by LegalShield for assistance regarding an IRS tax audit.  We talked with one of your attorneys by phone.  We were impressed with his background which combines being both a CPA and a tax attorney.  He was very knowledgeable and gave advice with clarity and in a very timely manner.  He quickly grasped the situation and told us exactly what we needed to do, both now and over the next few months.  He demonstrated a rare talent for understanding the issues and gave good and effective legal advice, as well as a practical approach to successfully resolving our concerns.”
