Moving Forward After A DUI/DWI Arrest

Eugene P RedmannNew Orleans is known as a city that welcomes visitors seeking a good time, but if things get out of control and you are arrested for DUI/DWI, the party is definitely over. According to Louisiana law, administrative and criminal penalties for first-time DUI/DWI offenses include:

  • Driver's license suspension for up to a year
  • The requirement to carry a certificate of high-risk insurance for up to three years after the conviction
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • Up to six months in jail

Second, third and additional offenses can carry even larger fines, mandatory jail time and/or court-ordered substance abuse treatment.

The Law Office of Eugene P. Redmann, LLC, can help you present your DUI/DWI case in a way that preserves your rights and minimizes potential negative outcomes. We are based in Metairie but work with clients throughout the New Orleans metro area.

No Free Pass On Intoxicated Driving For Tourists

If you were an out-of-state visitor when you were arrested on DUI or DWI charges, the consequences will follow you to your home state. If you fail to address your arrest in New Orleans, both the state of Louisiana and your home state can penalize you.

Our firm's founding attorney will review the evidence against you and discuss defense strategies that may lead to an acquittal or reduced charges. We will also seek ways to reduce the number of times you may need to return to the state to take care of the charges.

DUI Expungement: Starting With A Clean Slate

Once your case has been through court, you may wish to seek expungement of this conviction from your criminal record. Our lawyer and his staff will research your case and let you know if expungement is an option, and help you with each step of that process.

Because criminal background checks have become routine when being hired at a new job, you will want to look into expungement of your record to protect your employability and professional reputation.
