Kansas DUI Defense Lawyer: The First Offense
Question: If I get arrested for drunk driving and it’s a first offense, isn’t the worst that can happen just a slap on the wrist?
Answer: While that may have been true years ago, the fact is laws in Kansas and Missouri are harsh. Even a first offense DUI can have long-lasting consequences — hefty fines, lengthy license suspension, increased insurance rates and even jail time.
The cost of a conviction or guilty plea on a first offense DUI can equal or even exceed the cost of hiring an experienced defense attorney to fight for your rights, your record and your ability to drive. Contact me today for a free consultation.

In most first offense DUI cases, alternatives to jail may be available, including alcohol abuse education, out-patient treatment, home restriction or work-release. Many times, judges are amenable to these alternative programs because they know that first-time DUI offenders often deserve a second chance.
