Experienced Denver Drunk Driving Defense Law Firm
Being arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Colorado starts two legal proceedings, one criminal, one civil. At The Viorst Law Offices, P.C., in Denver, we have the skill and experience to effectively represent people in both types of cases associated with a DUI.
The penalties associated with a drunk driving conviction are becoming increasingly severe. Even a first offense can result in a one year driver’s license suspension and a year in jail. Implied consent laws have made the civil penalties associated with refusing a breath test equivalent to a conviction. At The Viorst Law Offices, P.C., we are committed to helping people avoid the harshest penalties associated with a DUI conviction.

It is not necessary to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 to be charged with an alcohol related driving offense. A BAC of .05 to .079 is often charged as driving while alcohol impaired (DWAI). The penalties for DUI and DWAI can be serious:
- First offense for a DUI can result in a fine of $300 to $1,000, a one-year driver’s license suspension, a five-day to one-year jail term, and 48 to 96 hours of public service.
- First offense for a DWAI can result in a fine of $100 to $500, eight points accessed to a driver’s license, a two- to 180-day jail term, and 48 to 96 hours of public service.
- Second offense for a DUI can result in a fine of $500 to $1,500, having a driver’s license revoked for one year, a 45-day to one-year jail term, and 60 to 120 hours of public service.
- Second offense for a DWAI can result in a fine of $300 to $1,000, having a driver’s license revoked for one year, a 45-day to one-year jail term, and 48 to 96 hours of public service.
