Protect Yourself With A Tough Defense

Driving while under the influence is never a good idea. It's all too easy to misjudge the amount of alcohol you've had, and if you do, you could be facing the most serious charges of your life.

If you or a loved one is facing DUI charges, you need a tough, experienced attorney. At Affordable Legal Services of Thomas Sandifer, that's what you'll get. I've been practicing for over 20 years, and have served as both a municipal judge and a prosecutor. Now, as a DUI defense lawyer, I'll take that experience and use it for your case. Because I have been on all sides of the courtroom, I'm uniquely able to help protect you or your loved one from the possible consequences you might face.

Possible Consequences Of A DUI Conviction

Because the safety consequences of driving under the influence can be so serious, the legal penalties are very strict. In Missouri, if you are convicted of driving under the influence, you may be facing:

  • License suspension of up to a year
  • Mandatory alcohol education and treatment
  • Loss of your vehicle
  • Mandated use of an ignition interlock device, that will not allow you to drive without testing your breath for alcohol
  • Jail time

Furthermore, the impact that a DWI conviction might have on your future can also be considerable. A first DUI offense is a class B misdemeanor, which will reflect on your record.
