The high cost of a drunk driving conviction

While it is no secret that a Missouri drunk driving conviction is a serious offense, many state residents do not fully understand the true, comprehensive costs associated with this type of crime. At Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, we have a firm understanding of just how much a driving under the influence conviction can cost you in the long run, and we have helped many clients facing similar circumstances defend themselves against such charges.

How can you reinstate driving privileges in Missouri?

If you are a Missouri resident who has lost his or her license because of driving under the influence conviction or another reason, you must take certain steps in order to get your driving privileges back and resume life as you know it. Not having a license can present clear obstacles with regard to finding and maintaining employment, so many offenders who lose their licenses wish to get them back as soon as possible.

How do you get your license back after a DUI?

In many places in Missouri, you have to be able to drive in order to do anything. Taking business trips, getting to work or even running a simple errand all require some time on the road. Public transportation is often inadequate, and chartered services, such as taxis or online ridesharing services, are non-existent, inconvenient or prohibitively expensive as a solution to your daily transportation necessities.

Factors that can affect Breathalyzer accuracy

If you are currently facing a drunk driving charge in Missouri, you may have concerns about the penalties you potentially face and how a possible conviction will impact your life. Chances are, you received your charge after blowing into a device called a Breathalyzer, and while, if calibrated and used correctly, Breathalyzers are often accurate, there are a number of factors that can throw off test results. At Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, we are well-versed in the factors that can affect Breathalyzer reliability, and we have helped many Missourians facing drunk driving charges defend themselves.

Can I fight a drunk driving charge if I'm over the limit?

Regardless of how they find themselves in such a situation, many, many people want to know if it is really possible to fight drunk driving charges if an officer determines that they were legally over the limit when the charges were issued. The short answer is yes, but of course it's more complicated than a simple "yes" or "no."
