Will I Lose My Job After A DUI Arrest Or Conviction?

I find that one of the major concerns my new clients have regarding their DWI/DUI case is whether or not they will lose their jobs.  This is a common sense, realistic worry, especially in an economy where good jobs are scarce.

The first simple fact is that most people will not lose their job as a result of an arrest, however, there are complications with a DWI arrest and a failed breath test or a refusal that require an attorney to perform expert and delicate work.  The immediate loss of your driving privileges after a DWI arrest can trigger significant difficulty from your employer.  We can help with that.

As for losing your job after a conviction – that is on an employer by employer basis.  But there are several types of jobs that having a DWI conviction can cause trouble for: teachers, doctors, nurses, truck drivers with a CDL, police officers, and those serving in the military.

We work diligently to protect our clients not just from the impact of a DWI arrest, but we also work to protect you from what may happen if you are convicted.
