Ken Anders DUI LawyerMr. Anders Is Commited To Providing His Clients With The Personal Attention Each Client Deserves.
Ken Anders has strived for more than 30 years to meet the needs and assist through aggressive legal means clients who have been charged with criminal offences ranging from murder to shoplifting.
The consequences for a conviction in a drinking and driving offence are catastrophic. Firstly there is a criminal record which will limit employment possibilities and perhaps prohibit travel into the United States.
Your insurance costs can increase greater than $10,000 if an insurance company will insure you at all. And then to get your licence back you will need to take a driving course and put an Interlock device in your car. For a first offence you will lose your license for a period of time, usually between three to fifteen months and the judge can sentence you to jail – but that rarely happens for a first offence – but it could happen.
For a second offence the penalty is a license suspension for three years and an automatic jail sentence of at least 30 days. For a third conviction you will lose your license for life and be sentenced to a minimum of four months in jail.
Your decision in choosing a lawyer is so very important. And again, the quality of the lawyer is not always determined by the amount of legal fees charged. Just because a lawyer might ask for substantial retainer does not mean he has a good understanding of drinking and driving law or that he has the experience and toughness to provide a first class defense.
