How Getting a DUI Can Affect Your Life

Being convicted of a DUI is not only emotionally difficult, but it can also be damaging to your finances and professional life. While some employers may let the conviction slide, others will consider it a serious lack of judgment on your part, and, depending on what you do for work, a DUI may even result in your outright termination.

Jobs You Can Still Get With a DUI on Your Record

What To Do After a DUI

If you've been arrested for a DUI, you should seek legal representation immediately. Unless you’re a lawyer, you’ll have no idea of how to navigate the litigation process in court.

A knowledgeable and experienced lawyer can help get your charges reduced. The conviction process will be less stressful with a lawyer on your side.

A DUI conviction comes with serious consequences. This includes jail time, a driver's license suspension, and hefty fines. A lawyer can help to reduce fines and your potential jail sentence. They may also help you keep your license.

Should I Tell My Boss I Got a DUI?

There is no law requiring you to report a DUI to your employer. In fact, the law places limits on what an employer may ask about your criminal record. However, there are several exceptions in which you must disclose a DUI to your boss:

  • If you drive as part of your job
  • If your employment agreement requires it
  • If you’re applying for a new job and you’re asked about arrests and convictions.
