Sydney DUI Lawyers
Our New South Wales Criminal Law team has a number of solicitors experienced in representing clients charged with offences of drink driving and other related offences such as driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol (DUI), driving with an illicit drug present in oral fluid and refuse/fail breath analysis.
Upon conviction for any of these offences, a mandatory licence disqualification applies. Our Sydney DUI lawyers recognise that this can have serious impacts on a person’s ability to carry out their employment duties, earn a living and provide for themselves and their family. In addition to any disqualification, the court is required to sentence a person who pleads guilty or is found guilty of a drink or drug driving offence and can impose penalties ranging from fines, conditional release orders and community corrections orders. For serious offences, a penalty of imprisonment may be imposed.

It is important that any person who is facing allegations or criminal charges ensures they receive timely legal advice so they understand how best to prepare for court. It’s important they have the best legal team to support them.
Our Sydney DUI lawyers regularly provide legal advice in relation to the options and prospects one faces in such matters, along with the court processes involved in the Local Court and Children’s Court where these matters are dealt with. We have people on hand to provide advice about dealing with police, possible appeals against immediate licence suspensions and whether or not the charges should be defended at court.
While all our lawyers’ practices will involve drink and drug driving offences from time to time, the below members of our team have particular experience in DUI matters. For one-off advice or representation, please feel free to call our lawyers on 1300 038 223 or send us an email to arrange an appointment with one of our Sydney DUI Lawyers who specialise in such offences.
