The First DUI Offense in Alabama

By Henry Lagman, Attorney at Law


In Alabama, a first DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense is not just a minor infraction—it’s a serious legal matter. The state’s stringent DUI laws are designed to deter driving under the influence, and the consequences of a conviction can be severe. As an experienced attorney in DUI law, I’m here to guide you through the complexities of your case.

Legal Consequences

A first DUI offense in Alabama can lead to significant penalties. These may include a jail sentence of up to one year, fines ranging from $600 to $2,100, and a 90-day license suspension. Additionally, you might be required to attend a DUI or substance abuse program. It’s important to understand that these penalties can have long-lasting effects on your personal and professional life.

Defense Strategies

Despite the severity of these penalties, there are various defense strategies that can be employed. These might include challenging the legality of the traffic stop, the accuracy of the breathalyzer test, or the handling of the field sobriety tests. Each case is unique, and a tailored defense strategy is crucial. As your attorney, I would analyze every detail of your case to determine the most effective approach.
