Have you been arrested for drunk driving in the Nashville Area?
Getting arrested on a drunk driving charge in the Nashville Area is no small matter. The law office of McNulty & Associates can help. A drunk driving conviction can result in jail time for even first-time offenders, so you must take action right away.
Drunk Driving Penalties
At the very least you will incur a fine of up to $5,000, and Tennessee drunk driving laws require the suspension or revocation of your license. Losing your license can have dire long-ranging consequences: inconvenience to family and friends who might have to take over your driving responsibilities, extra cost to hire a driver, and even the inability to get to work. Additionally, a drunk driving arrest remains on your permanent record.
This can effect your future employability and may prevent you from getting another job later in life. Most people convicted of driving drunk will also have to attend alcohol treatment classes and be assessed in alcohol education. These sessions can be time consuming, and a further drain on the people around you.
How we can help
Contact the drunk driving defense team at the law office of McNulty & Associates in Nashville so that we can help. You do not have to suffer a drunk driving conviction on your own. We know how debilitating such an arrest can be, and we know how to help. We can challenge the legality of the arrest itself, and the blood alcohol evidence used to convict you. We have a close understanding of the Tennessee laws regarding these circumstances, and we may be able to render the arrest invalid.
If you have been threatened with a loss of your license either because you failed a blood alcohol test or because you refused to submit to the test, you do not necessarily have to lose your right to drive. We can aid you in your appearance before the DMV so that you can maintain your license as a means to continue working and living your daily life.
