A DUI can be devastating to your reputation. It will be a conviction that will stay on your record, forcing you to disclose that time you made a mistake. Worse yet any other offense afterward will be treated differently and may mean harsher penalties, including jail time. Don’t lose your job or your reputation.

A traffic ticket is considered a crime. Paying the ticket is the equivalent to pleading guilty. The consequence is that you now have a conviction on your driving record. Multiple convictions can lead to a suspended driver’s license, higher insurance premium, and can ruin your reputation. Protect your record by hiring a lawyer that cares.

Conviction on a criminal charge can impact a person’s life for years to come -regardless of whether you serve time in jail or plead “guilty” to a misdemeanor. At the Ruben Restrepo Laws, PLLC, I advise and defend people facing felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. In cases involving serious criminal charges, I will work closely with investigators, forensic specialists, hair and fiber analysts, toxicologists, and other experts in analyzing and challenging the evidence against the accused. In misdemeanor cases, I will attempt to have the charges and sentences against my clients reduced in exchange for community service, probation, and counseling in cases involving drugs and alcohol. Regardless of whether you are currently under investigation or have already been charged, you need a criminal defense lawyer who has the experience and resources needed to protect your rights and fight any charges filed against you.
