Protecting Your Rights And Your Driving Privileges
If you have been accused of driving under the influence (DUI), you know that you need to protect yourself not only from fines, but from loss of your driver’s license and damage to your career. You know that this is no small matter and that you cannot take it lightly. People who do not take their defense seriously may quickly find themselves in jail or without a job.
At Beckdefense, we understand how prosecutors and judges view drunk driving cases, because our founding lawyer is a former criminal prosecutor. We can help you navigate the criminal justice system.

The Consequences of a DUI Conviction
A DUI conviction can have lasting consequences. Even a first-offense DUI can result in thousands of dollars in fines, the loss of your license, enrollment in a mandatory treatment program and up to one year in jail. The penalties for subsequent DUI convictions can be even more severe, including up to 10 years in prison, the loss of your license for years to come and more than $10,000 in fines.
If you were handed a yellow sheet of paper (AST-60) and told that it could be used as a temporary driver’s license, you have only 10 days to request a hearing to try to prevent driver’s license suspension. Even though you haven’t been proven guilty of anything, the state will suspend your driver’s license if you don’t act quickly.
Your Career and Reputation Could Be in Jeopardy
For many professionals in Alabama, the worst consequences of a DUI are job loss and damage to reputation. We put more than 20 years of experience to work to prevent these.
It is important to remember that no one in the criminal justice system is on your side. From police officers, to prosecutors, to judges, everyone you encounter will gladly participate in your conviction. We are on your side. We can help you address any evidence against you, from field sobriety tests, to the Dräger breath test, to the conduct of the arresting officers. We will defend your rights, even if it means going to trial.
