Helping You Avoid First-Offense DUI Penalties
Attorney Tommy K. Hindman will aggressively investigate your drunk driving charge. He will fight to help you avoid the penalties of a first offense conviction. These penalties include a sentence of up to 11 months and 29 days in prison, fines up to $1,500, alcohol and drug safety school program and one year driver's license suspension.
Did You Refuse to Take the Breathalyzer?
Tennessee has an implied consent law. This means when you signed for your driver's license, you agreed to submit to a Breathalyzer test or blood test if law enforcement had probable cause to believe you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Refusing a Breathalyzer test can result in driver's license suspension. However, if you refuse a field sobriety test, you do not risk driver's license suspension for refusing.
If you refused to take the Breathalyzer test and lost your license, our firm may be able to obtain an occupational license for you. There are limits on when you can drive and where you can drive. If this is your first-offense DUI, you can apply for an occupational driver's license that allows you to drive to work or school. If this is your second-offense DUI, you can apply for an occupational driver's license after one year has passed in the two-year suspension.
