Will your life return to normal after a DUI conviction?

Wisconsin residents like you who have been accused of driving under the influence may face serious repercussions. Readjusting to normal life afterward may actually be more difficult than you think. Today, we at Mayer Law Office, LLC., will discuss some of the potential hurdles you might face.

In some cases, your ability to drive or travel may be permanently hampered. For example, Canada does not allow anyone with a DUI conviction on their record to travel into the country. Additionally, some people end up having their licenses suspended or revoked for years. In severe cases, licenses can even be revoked for a lifetime, severely limiting your ability to get around since you must rely on rideshares, public transportation, or friends and family with cars.

There's also the damage to your reputation, which is the hardest hurdle of all in some cases. A DUI conviction tends to follow people around long after the incident has passed. Potential employers can find it on your record. Landlords can see it. Police in any city you move to will also have access to that information. People tend to steer clear of those with DUI-related convictions, and it isn't uncommon for someone with a DUI to be denied when applying for housing or jobs.

Being accused of driving while under the influence can be a scary thing to face. However, with the right legal guidance, it can be a lot less overwhelming. Take a look at our webpage on dealing with the aftermath of a DUI accusation, which discusses potential options for handling your case and more.
