"Being arrested for DUI or drug offenses does not have to be a devastating experience. Even though the suspension or revocation of your driver's license and the conviction of a DUI or drug offense can lead to loss of employment, increased costs or cancellation of auto insurance, jail time, and loss of reputation, many DUI and drug cases can be successfully defended in court and DMV hearings by an experienced attorney."
