Drink Driving Lawyer Melbourne My Reading is Over 0.15 or This is NOT My First Offence
DRINK DRIVING LAWYER MELBOURNE WITH 36+ YEARS OF WINNING DRINK DRIVING CASES
Avoid a Drink Driving Conviction
A drink driving conviction is a criminal conviction. It is recorded as a criminal conviction, and you are labeled as a criminal. I will represent you at court to avoid a conviction. The consequences of a conviction go deeper than you probably realise.
Does a Drink Driving Conviction Affect My Job and Future?
Most employers and professions have a criminal conviction policy that may affect your ability to practice or secure future work. If you wish to work overseas, a drink driving conviction will make it difficult for you to obtain a work visa. For example, Canada bans anyone with a conviction of 0.08% or higher from obtaining a work visa for five years. If you are in Australia on a student, temporary or bridging visa and wish to apply for permanent residency or Australian citizenship, a drink driving conviction may harm your chances of success. A criminal conviction can also cause problems for your firearms licence and security industry licence.
The way to avoid conviction is to have a lawyer like me represent you at court. I will present evidence to the court of your good character, family circumstances and employment and seek to obtain a non-convicton penalty for you. Call now to take the first step towards avoiding a conviction.
CHARGED WITH A DRINK DRIVING OFFENCE?
DON’T RISK A CRIMINAL CONVICTION
Put my 36+ years of experience to work for you. We’ll get through this together.
Do You Handle My Type Of Case?
I handle all types of drink driving charges such as exceed .05%, driving under the influence of alcohol, refuse preliminary breath test, refuse to accompany police for a breath test, refuse breath test, refuse to remain at the police station for a breath test, blood test cases and refuse a blood test, driving with both alcohol and drugs charges.
This could spell disaster if you don’t handle the situation properly. If your licence was suspended on the spot by police for drink driving, it remains suspended until the end of the court case. With court delays, your drink driving case may take 12 months to be completed. What happens if you are ultimately acquitted? You may have done 12 months cold! The government does not pay compensation for lost income. I can apply immediately to the court to cancel the suspension notice and get you straight back on the road. You must have exceptional circumstances, but we can discuss your situation to determine whether you fall into this category.
I Have a Prior Conviction For Drink Driving.
If you have been previously found guilty of drink driving the Magistrate has the power to sentence you to jail. I have appeared for many repeat drink drivers and have a high success rate in saving you from a jail term. I will present a detailed plea for mercy to the court on your behalf. I will focus on achieving either a fine or community work order for you.
